TGA2017: Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds 1.0 will launch on Dec 20
Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds has dominated Steam’s top charts throughout 2017, and the multiplayer survival shooter is finally leaving Steam’s Early Access on Dec 20.
For those not in the know, Playerunknown’s Battleground is a game where players are thrown into an 8×8 km island and will have to find a way to survive. Initially starting with nothing, players will have to scour the map to locate weapons and supplies as the map size shrinks as the match drags on. This will increase the likelihood of players encountering each other. The game ends when only one survivor is left standing.
Alongside the announcement made in The Game Awards 2017, the team from PUBG Corporation is adding a new desert map called Miramar. We got to take a glimpse of the latest map in action within the trailer. Miramar’s map size is supposedly smaller compared to the current island in Battlegrounds. It will also be filled with urban and rural areas, as well as tall urban buildings, which makes competition more intense than it already is.
Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds is set to launch the final version of the game on Dec 20 for the PC. Xbox owners will be able to play the game on Dec 12 through Xbox Game Preview program (something like Early Access on Steam), although it will not be the final version of the game.
