There are some big content drops on the horizon for the OG Battle Royale game, Player Unkown's Battlegrounds.
Chief amongst these is the remastering of PUBG's Miramar map, and updates on the entirely new maps that Krafton currently has in development.
Publisher KRAFTON has shared updates on all of these aspects of PUBG, which you can check out for yourself below:
PUBG Content Roadmap
Miramar Updated (PC: 2 June, Consoles: 10 June) - Miramar is getting a visual overhaul, bringing it in line with other PUBG maps. This updated map will be available as part of PUBG’s Season 12.1 update.
Codename - Tiger
New Map - “Codename: Tiger” (Q3 2021) - Following the remastering of Miramar, KRAFTON will release its first new 8x8 Battleground since 2018. “Tiger” will feature many of the key aspects fans have come to expect with new PUBG maps. It will also introduce a major new gameplay mechanic to PUBG: the ability for players to return to the battle after an initial defeat.
Codename - Kiki
New Map - “Codename: Kiki” (Q4 2021 or Q1 2022) - Later this year or in early 2022, KRAFTON plans to release its fourth 8x8 PUBG map - “Codename: Kiki.” This map is still early in development, and more details will be released in the future.
PUBG x EL SOLITARIO COLLABORATION
KRAFTON recently revealed its collaboration with El Solitario, the popular Spain-based motorcycle company that is actively driving classic motorcycle culture throughout Europe. KRAFTON will introduce El Solitario’s popular “Desert Wolves” off-road motorcycles and themed outfits to PUBG from 1 June through 30 December.
To complement PUBG’s collaboration with El Solitario, a new Racing Mode will be available to play for a limited time. This mode, which is available on Miramar, features two distinct race types: solo and squad (up to four players).
- Players who own the El Solitario Desert Wolves vehicle skin will see it automatically applied to the Motor Bike vehicle.
- Racing Mode will be available 2-14 June on PC and 10-21 June on consoles.
In addition to introducing a remastered Miramar when it releases on PC on 2 June and consoles on 10 June, Season 12 will also introduce a new ranked season, expanded customisation options, a new weapon and a new vehicle.
New Ranked Season - Update 12.1 marks the beginning of a new ranked season, meaning all rewards earned during the Ranked Season 11 will be automatically added to players’ inventory once Season 12 goes live on 2 June. Similar to Ranked Season 11, Ranked Season 12 will run for a two-month period.
Weapon Skin Upgrade System - The new weapon skin upgrade system will make its debut with 12.1, allowing players to evolve the cosmetics of certain weapon skins by consuming specific in-game materials and goods. Acquired from the Weapon Skin Lucky Box, these evolutionary weapon skins will gain new features as they are levelled up.
New Weapon - Lynx AMR - Available through Care Packages in Miramar normal matches, the L6 Lynx is PUBG's first Anti-Material Rifle. This semi-automatic crate gun is capable of penetrating military equipment, and armoured players or vehicles. Intended as a hard counter to vehicles, the L6 remains an effective sniper rifle against players when used wisely.
New Vehicle - Quad - Available on Miramar, this all-terrain-vehicle (ATV) has four low-pressure tires with the driver seat designed to be straddled by the operator, with handlebars for steering control. It is modelled after a racing-style ATV but includes a rear seat for a second occupant.
Lobby Ball - While waiting on the starting island for a match to start, players will now find a football (soccer ball) they can kick around with other Survivors. Players can dribble, pass, and shoot the football (soccer ball) while they wait, or even coordinate a short game of football (soccer) if they like.
