PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds teases its desert map, eyes post-launch cosmetics
Still find yourself dizzy with disbelief about how the most awkwardly titled video game ever became 2017’s biggest hit? Check out Polygon’s rundown of how PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds came to dominate the scene this year.
There’s a lot on deck for this battle royale title, which we should remind you is still in desert. The team has a new desert map named Miramar that’s coming to the game soon. Miramar is a large map with eight distinct regions, such as the metropolis of Los Leones and the oceanside resort of Valle del Mar.
The team is also looking at some post-launch plans, such as creating more cosmetics to meet player demands for cool-looking outfits. Don’t worry that the game is about to be ruined by pay-to-win crates and overpowered items, however, as the studio said that it’s being careful with additions.
“We are working on new weapons, clothing items and vehicles, and there will be a surprise announcement about them before their releases,” PUBG Corp said at G-Star. “As you may already know, we will never add anything that affects the gameplay.”
