PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS to get New Aquarail Jet Ski

PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS to get New Aquarail Jet Ski

Bluehole's massively popular battle royale title, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG), has only had a single map, Erangel, since its inception.

According to the PUBG blog, "the unique terrain and dense urban areas of Miramar will create a new Battle Royale experience where the old strategies may no longer work and new tactics are required".

Developers did not give an exact release date for Miramar but said it will be playable in PUBG's test server before the game hits its 1.0 version on PC, which is said to be coming sometime this month. Numerous construction sites can also provide players with high vantage points.

As PlayerUnknown's Battlegroundscreeps towards version 1.0 and its console debut on Xbox One next week, it's about to double its number of maps.

Previously just referred to as PUBG's desert map, the second map for the game is called Miramar, a somewhat common name in areas of the United States named by Spanish and Portugese settlers.

El Pozo is a city known for its large industrial and entertainment districts. Ramshackle walls built to protect its residents now allow players ample cover to explore the well-stocked compound. To the West of the bridge is a quaint school, and to the East, a attractive church. The key to controlling the town is keeping the bridge guarded. Here players will find checkpoints and barriers, the town also has various overlooks, so players attempting to enter will need to look out for enemy players controlling the way in. It's supposed to showcase more arcade-based features, but it's largely related to vanilla PUBG. This is the "husk" of Miramar's textile industry. This looks like a prime location for loot, which usually makes it incredibly unsafe.
