After weeks of testing, Miramar is finally set to launch for the Xbox One version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. The new map will be added to the live game tomorrow, May 24, and it will arrive as part of PUBG’s May update alongside some stability and optimization improvements. [Update: The May update has arrived, and Miramar is now available on PUBG’s live servers on Xbox One.]
Miramar rolls out for all Xbox One players at 12 AM PT / 3 AM ET / 8 AM BST. It’s the second map to be added to the console version of PUBG, following Erangel. In contrast to the lush greenery of the original map, Miramar is set in the desert and features arid locales likes mountains and villages to explore and fight in.
Miramar released for the PC version of PUBG several months ago, but Xbox One owners got their first chance to try the map out in April, when developer PUBG Corp. held the first of several Miramar tests on the console. The desert map was also recently added to the mobile version of PUBG.
Miramar arrives alongside a couple of new vehicles, such as the six-seater mini-bus and the off-road pickup truck, both of which will only appear on the desert map. Players will also be able to find an assortment of new weapons on Miramar, including the R45, Win 94, and sawed-off shotgun.
“The PUBG Xbox team has been constantly monitoring and reviewing your feedback from both the live servers and PTS,” PUBG Corp. said. In addition to the new map, the studio is adding a “highly predictive-based loading system” in order to further improve the game’s performance on Xbox One. You can find the full patch notes for the May update on the official PUBG website.
