PUBG’s desert map, Miramar, has been improved dramatically following the game’s latest update.

It has been confirmed that the update will include an increased number of buildings and cover to enhance the player experience, as well as greater off-road routes and improved vehicle navigation.

The update was deemed necessary by the game’s developers due to a large number of players favouring the Erangel map to Miramar.

As it stands, players are unable to select the map at the beginning of a game, and a trend had developed of moving away from Miramar as soon as game begins.

In fact, some individuals have even begun to delete game files to allow them to skip out the desert map entirely.

With the changes in place the developers are hoping the update will make Miramar far more appealing and keep players within the map, with the new map feeling much less empty which was at the route of most of the many unsatisfied gamer’s issues.

The update will also introduce an anti-cheat measure to the game’s test serves. PUBG Corporation has explained that they expect the update to cause crashes for some players, which is why they have decided to trial it on the game’s test servers prior to releasing it freely to the general public.

Either way, the update should, in theory, add to the game’s already large attraction, if both maps can grow to the same level of popularity.

Brendan Greene (PlayerUnknown), the game’s lead designer and developer, will be hopeful that updates such as this stand the game in good stead for a successful future in world of professional eSports.
