update on Steam
offers details on the new desert map coming to
, saying this will come to the early access
battle royale game in its last content update before the game hits version 1.0.
They also reveal the name of the map is Mirimar, an odd title for a desert map,
as our careful research
tells us this term is of Portuguese and Spanish derivation, and means "sea-view"
or "sea sight," but the images included in the article do show this desert is surrounded by the sea, so there. Along with that news and the screenshots,
PUBG Corporation also offers details on some of the landmarks on the new map:
We are excited beyond words that we can finally share the name of our new desert
map and tell you a little bit about some of the places you can visit. When we
decided to create a new map, we focused on creating an environment that is very
different from Erangel. We wanted to go the opposite direction of having lush
fields and forests and arrived at the harsh and unforgiving desert of what we
can now reveal is Miramar. The unique terrain and dense urban areas of Miramar
will create a new Battle Royale experience where the old strategies may no
longer work and new tactics are required. We don't want to tell you too much as
you will soon be able to experience it all yourself but we did write a few short
descriptions of several of the key landmarks and towns. You can find them below,
together with the new screenshots.
- The largest city in the region, Los Leones
features ample shopping, a skyline filled with new construction, and a
glorious, golden-hued City Center. Players should secure high vantage points
by exploring the numerous construction sites, and loot for gear in the
cavernous, abandoned commercial buildings.
- 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
- 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
These aren't the only fun places to visit, of course, but you will have to
discover the rest of them on your own. Miramar will be playable during the final
test round before PUBG hits version 1.0. When you get your hands on it, you can
