PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' Desert Map to be Debuted at The Game Awards

By Laura Kate Dale on at

For the past couple of weeks, we've been reporting on an upcoming desert map for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, which had repeatedly seen information leak thanks to dataminers grabbing images of map data from updates. We've been waiting and wondering when we would finally know specifics about the map or see it in action — and now we finally know. Well, we at least know when the news is coming.

Yep, at The Game Awards just next week, we will finally get to see gameplay of the new map in action, confirming earlier suspicions that the map was not far from being ready to launch.

It remains to be seen if any changes have been made to the map since the datamined images last showed up for it, but either way, it's likely to give us a better feel of what the expanded content has to offer players.

Good luck whoever tries to win that first tasty chicken dinner, I just hope it isn't too sandy to enjoy.
