Miramar is the official name for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ next map, which has so far been simply referred to as the desert map.
The name was unveiled today by PUBG developer PUBG Corp. In a blog post, the developer shared screenshots of the final layout, complete with town names and a little bit of info about some of the hottest spots.
PUBG Corp said that the goal with Miramar was to create a different environment from Erangel, the current map. This is not only reflected in their choice of aesthetics and topography, but also in the gameplay opportunities the new map offers that differ from Erangel.
There are lots of of dense urban areas, and the developer says it’ll require learning new tactics. As you’ve no doubt seen in the countless layout leaks and datamines, Los Leons is the largest city in Miramar.
The city features shopping areas, and lots of under-construction places with vantage points that PUBG Corp confirmed will be accessible. Take a look at all the new screenshots below, alongside location descriptions direct from the developer.
El Pozo is a city known for its large industrial and entertainment districts. Players can test themselves against all comers in the Luchador Arena, put their motorcycle skills to the test In the death bowl, or hunt in the ruins of the long dead textile factories.
Monte Nuevo is the picture of a town besieged. Ramshackle walls built to protect its residents now allow players ample cover to explore the well-stocked compound.
Valle del Mar
Valle del Mar is a colorful oceanside town bisected by the De Toro bridge. To the West of the bridge is a quaint school, and to the East, a beautiful church. The key to holding this town is bridge control, as it’s the only direct route between mainland and the island.
The shipping and transport capitol of Miramar, La Cobrería’s most prominent feature is it’s enormous Rail Yard. Here, players will hunt and be hunted among the half-buried cargo of a long dead industry. Careful players should loot the schools and campuses that dot this town before attempting to hold the Yard.
San Martín is located just south of Hacienda Del Patrón. Checkpoints and barriers have transformed this once-quiet small town into a war zone. Both sides of the town have overlooks, so careful players should scout first, before charging into town.
Once a tourist destination featuring the largest casino in the region, Pecado continues to thrill players to this day with its mix of high-value loot and dangerous sightlines. Aggressive players will immediately loot the Arena and Casino, but savvy players should check out the 4 story hotels between them.
Chumacera is the husk of Miramar’s once thriving textile industry. Long abandoned factories overlook a main road lined with residential and commercial buildings. Verticality in both the buildings and terrain make this town an exciting location to loot- high risk, high opportunity!
Miramar will be available in the next test build, which is likely going to be live next week. This will be the final test before version 1.0 launches later this month. Until then, we have the first gameplay footage of Miramar to look forward to at the Game Awards 2017 show this Thursday.
