PUBG brings back big maps and one big new feature.
Krafton has big plans PUBG in 2021 and beyond. IN development updates, the studio sketched broader strokes of new content coming into play in the coming months.
This year, Krafton intends to introduce two new large maps for PUBG. The third map of the game, measuring 8 × 8 km, codenamed Tiger, will arrive later this year. In recent years, PUBG has moved away from the large 8 × 8 km maps that defined its origins, but Tiger represents a return to the style for the studio.
A tiger will be the first map based on Korea, where Krafton comes from. Not much is known about Tiger, but Krafton has revealed that it will be the first map of the game to allow players to reappear after death. This quarrelsome mechanic became the basis of other Battle Royale games, but PUBG never really flirted with the idea until recently.
More than a month ago, Krafton he demonstrated an early version of respawn in the experimental branch of the game, PUBG Labs. Respawning was available on the Paramo map just for this test and worked on a cycle that was unlike what you might find in a normal TDM match, where players simply returned to the match after a set time. It’s not clear if this will be the way respawning works for Tiger.
Later this year or early next year, another 8 × 8 km map is ready. With code designation Kiki, although much less in development compared to Tiger. Kiki sounds like it’s the most interesting PUBG map yet with the city’s metropolitan environment of “massive skyscrapers” and “underground laboratories.”
Kiki’s diverse environments will also include various other locations not found in any of the game’s other maps, such as underwater buildings and subway stations.
In the immediate vicinity, Miramar remaster arrived at the game’s test servers on a PC. This version of Miramar brings the visual quality of the desert map to the standard set by the Erangel remake and more modern PUBG maps. This is not only reflected in the new lighting and updated features, the new Miramar will also be less crowded, with brighter outdoor and indoor spaces.
