We’ll get our first proper look at the second map PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds during the annual Game Awards next month.

The Game Awards, hosted by Geoff Keighley, are known for unveiling a few first-look exclusives in among all the awards and music acts (last year we got Run the Jewels, and it was pretty cool, despite some aggressively terrible mixing).

Now, thanks to Keighley’s Twitter account, we know one of the exclusive looks we’ll get this year. The new map for PUBG will be unveiled with a gameplay demonstration.

On December 7, the Game Awards will show you where you’ll eat your next chicken dinner (which they’ll hopefully pair with a cool pint of beer, considering how arid it’s probably going to be out there).

We’ve gotten little glimpses of the map, including this lovely overhead shot of a major town, but this is the first time we’ll see people actually playing in it.

PUBG recently received a 1.0 test patch, and is gearing up to leave Early Access soon. It’s been a big year for the game – it has racked up a phenomenal 20 million sales already.

The Game Awards will air on December 7, at 5:30 pm PST / 8:30 pm EST. You’ll be able to watch the whole thing on YouTube.
