PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds new map “Desert” will be shown in a live gameplay presentation to the audience inside the Microsoft Theater and to fans watching around the globe from the comfort of their own living room’s.
We’ve had glimpses of the new map before, but this will be the first opportunity to see it in action.
If you happen to have been sleeping under a rock for the past year you won’t have heard of PUBG, a game with 100 players, who after being dropped into a random location on a map, duke it amongst themselves until only 1 player remains, standing victorious over a pile of lifeless corpses.
It’s been on quite the roll of late following its Early Access release on PC via Steam earlier this year and recently dethroned fellow Steam juggernaut DOTA 2 for player base bragging rights. Oh, it’s also headed to Xbox One Preview Program real soon, so expect the PUBG train to continue rolling for some considerable time yet.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is out now for PC via Steam.
