PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds might be the success story of 2017 thus far. This Battle Royale style game that’s in early access on Steam has garnered 2 million in sales in a relatively short period of time, and apparently all that money is going to be put to good use as new maps are in the works.
According to details from Game Informer, two new maps are coming to PUBG. The first map is on an island on the Adriatic Sea. It contains thick forests on the north side of the island, a snowy mountain portion in the middle, and coastal waters on the south. This should give players a reason to pick up a parka at the very least.

The second map is located in the desert. The report suggests that this region is war ravaged with sandstorms having buried much of the city. This map features a large canyon with a river running through to a small village.
GI suggests that these details are subject to change but both maps have a different size in terms of square km. The former being the bigger of the two maps. It’s nice to see that the game will be getting more variety in future updates.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is currently only available on PC. However, it sounds like there are certainly plans to get the game ported over to consoles when time permits. The team has said that they are hoping to get the game to Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but it seems like Xbox One may be the first landing for PUBG on consoles. In the same article, Brendan Greene says that there are a lot of things still being worked on for the PC version, including new modes for the game.
