PUBG Corporation, arguably the pioneers of the modern battle royale genre, have announced that its trailblazing title, PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS, has sold over 70 million units to date. To commemorate this milestone, the latest update will return to the jungles of Sanhok with PUBG Season 8.
When survivors drop into Sanhok, they’ll discover that almost every structure, tree, rock, and material in the map has been rebuilt from the ground up. Using data and player feedback, many locations have had extensive design and art upgrades. Popular locations, such as Boot Camp, Ruins, Pai Nan, Khao, and Quarry have all received major updates. For those keen on exploring, new locations and hidden gems can be found around the island, including a new tourist town “Getaway”, and bootcamp “Airfield.” From the Ruins to the Cave, Sanhok has been updated to increase its visual fidelity, balance, and performance.
Players can preview update 8.1 on the PUBG test server, prior to its full launch on 22nd July 2020 for Windows, and 30th July for consoles.
