Now Playing: PUBG: Everything You Need To Know Before Playing The New Map

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.

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.

Minor correction. While rare, the Jetski is already in game. Have ridden it a few times now.

@Rong42:

I wouldn’t call it a jet ski so much as a mechanical version of a rideable manatee

@bubba_666: if it weren’t so much fun (when it sorta works) I wouldn’t be playing it. But ya, it’s def broken. Think of it as bad pizza, no matter how bad it is, you’ll still eat it if you’re hungry

Please forgive my ignorance, but I wish they would just redesign this game in another engine that doesn't run like crap. Love the game, but my god, there is no reason it should run as bad as it does on my One X.

@stykman: what they need is a competent developer. Which is why when some one like Ubisoft gets a hold of this style of game with say...Ghost Recon......then PUBG will be a thing of the past.

@alexofburg: agreed. If you think about it, all PUBG is, just a mod of someone else’s game

@lithus: Yes but in their defense, Brendan Greene was the one who made those mods.

@plus_1: day and night with weather would be cool. Not sure about the food thing though. The game matches (10-12 minutes) just isn’t long enough to warrant food/water.

If anything, they could differentiate injuries to each location and adjust the time it takes to heal. For example. Instead of only bandaging your arm every time, you bandage your leg if that’s where you took the critical dmg. Head shot? Takes longer to heal and you become a brain dead liberal who complains about the guns in the game.

@alexofburg: thats one of the major aspects of “survival”. Which why this over other types in its genre appeals to me. I hate when games change just to appeal the “right now” crowd. Like with FN and PUBG. PUBG is gonna shoot themselves in the foot with all these dumb mode knocc offs. 8 man or even 10 man squads would be the only mode im interested in. 50v50 etc just dont appeal to me.

I wonder how playable the game is on the Xbox now. When I saw it at launch it looked like an absolute joke.

@WARLOCK234: it was unplayable at launch for sure. So if you could put a percentage on it...I’d say launch was 45% playable and now it’s like 70%. It sounds like a big improvement but all it did was go from bad to okay-ish.

@WARLOCK234: if you have an X more than playable. Frames are much better and no more rubber banding. Again, on the X. Tho my sons have an S(10 & 15), the only problem still present often is the game freezing, but not as much. Ive noticed when a friend lags out on OG or S, on my X Ill get “network lag detected”. So theres still a hitch or two, but overall vastly improved.

@johnyboy17: in a year there will 4 or 5 better military Battle royale games. Hell if ghost recon wildlands added the mode, no one would play PUBG anymore. I love pubg but im in no way obligated or held down to play only pubg. The moment i can leave i will because Bluehole sucks major bhole at making games

@WARLOCK234: it was playable on day one. The media really made it seems worst than it was. I won my first chicken dinner on xb1 after 3 rounds. The only real problems were in the landing and the few minutes right after. Once the game loaded in it was fine. The the other issues like rubber banding and lagging out have almost been eliminated.

If you don't mind 30fps it's the best way to play pubg right now.
