PUBG teases ballistic shield, and new snowy map coming soon

PUBG Xbox Trailer Reveals Two New Maps Coming This Year

PUBG's console home is on Xbox, so it makes ideal sense that Microsoft would spend some time in its E3 press conference to point out the advancements it's making through the Preview program.

The first new map coming to PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is the Sanhok jungle map, which is notable for being much smaller than the Erangel and Miramar maps that are now available in the game. This newest map that's been tested on the PC servers for some time now is preparing to launch for PC players this month on June 22 with an Xbox One release coming later in the summer. Towards the end of previous year, the title was released for the console and was quite positively received, with the Xbox One player count blowing past 4 million in a little over a month. Lastly, the company also hinted at the fourth winter-themed map coming to the Xbox One as well. Riot shields should add an extra layer of strategy to the gameplay, and at the very least, should give players more options when out in the battlefield. War Mode will also be making its way to the console, along with the Sanhok map that has been highly anticipated by PUBG's Xbox One community. War Mode is an alternative mode that's essentially deathmatch for PUBG, instead of the battle royale formula that made the game popular.

"This map is now very early in development, and we're aiming to bring it to both PC and Xbox One this winter", PUBG's Steam forums post explained.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is out now on PC and mobile devices, and is available on Xbox One through early access.
