You might have remembered reading way back that a new map is coming to PUBG.
Well, it’s finally been named. Welcome to Miramar.
While teasers have been floating around for a while, this is the first official confirmation of the new locations you’ll be plundering. Miramar is the complete opposite of Erangel. With less greenery and barely any trees to squat behind, new tactics and strategies will need to be developed.
In a Steam community post, Bluehole detailed how Miramar offers ‘unique terrain and dense urban areas’, something entirely new to PUBG. They also offered an insight into a few key locations:
The largest city in the region, Los Leones offers high vantage points, construction sites and vast, abandoned buildings. This looks like a prime location for loot, which usually makes it incredibly dangerous.
Another city, El Pozo features a bunch of factories and large buildings as well as, most excitingly, a Luchador arena and a ‘death bowl’, designed for motorcycles.
A ‘town besieged’. By the sounds of it Monte Neuvo is an ad-hoc fortress, with hastily built defenses and well-stocked with gear. Avoid like the plague by the sounds of it.
Well known for it’s rail yard, players in La Cobreria will find themselves fighting in and around cargo containers. A few schools apparently dot the town and as usual, are good for loot.
A tourist destination that features the largest casino in the region. With an arena, four-story hotels and the aforementioned casino, Pecado features long sightlines for big, open gunfights.
Judging by the map, other hot spots will probably include the Prison and the ‘Campo Militar’, which we assume will be good for fist-fighting upon landing.
According to Bluehole, Miramar will be playable during the final test round before PUBG version 1.0 delivers the goods.
In case you missed it, Miramar will also bring with it a new vehicle in the form of a truck specific to the new desert backdrop and more importantly, a sawn-off shotgun.
It’s probably useless but that thing looks great.
