PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds on Xbox One has garnered a large playerbase since its release, but content-wise it still only features one map. Developer PUBG Corp. announced today at PAX East that this will change in May, when the studio adds Miramar, the desert map that has already been available for PC players for a few months.

PUBG Corp has revealed that the desert map, called Miramar, will come to the Xbox One version of the game next month. Right now, only the original map Erangel is playable. The studio hasn't provided a specific release date yet for the map, although it promises that more info will be announced soon. In the meantime, a new Xbox One update is coming.

As you can see in the video embedded at the top of this article, Miramar is a lot different than Erangel. Where the original map is green and lush, with lots of trees and vegetation to provide cover, Miramar is much more sparse. Players are a lot more exposed when running between buildings. In addition, the map includes three additional vehicles: the minibus, the pickup truck, and the jetski.

In other PUBG news, the developer is currently working on a third map for the PC version. This is a much smaller arena, a quarter of the size of the other two. As a result, it encourages much quicker confrontations and more aggressive play styles; in fact, it feels a bit more like Fortnite. An early version was recently playable on the PC test servers for select players.
