PUBG has been given a full release date on PC, as Battlegrounds fans gear up for a busy few weeks.PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds will leave Early Access and be upgraded to version 1.0 on December 20.Version 1.0 will introduce climbing and vaulting, which are said to severely change the game.

Players will be better able to escape from danger and potentially sneak up on enemies hidden indoors.

And the good news doesn’t stop there, as Bluehole makes the brand new Desert map available for testing.

The newly revealed Miramar map is available for testing until December 11. Xbox One users will be able to check it out next year.

You can check out the new Miramar map in the gallery below…

Bluehole’s new Miramar Desert map is said to provide players with new gameplay strategies.”We are excited beyond words that we can finally share the name of our new desert map and tell you a little bit about some of the places you can visit,” reads a Bluehole blog post.”When we decided to create a new map, we focused on creating an environment that is very different from Erangel. We wanted to go the opposite direction of having lush fields and forests and arrived at the harsh and unforgiving desert of what we can now reveal is Miramar.

“The unique terrain and dense urban areas of Miramar will create a new Battle Royale experience where the old strategies may no longer work and new tactics are required.”

Ahead of PUBG’s December 12 release date on Xbox One, Microsoft has released the first DLC bundle.

For a limited time only, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds fans can purchase the Warrior Pack from the Microsoft store, where it’s available for £7.99.

The PUBG Warrior Pack includes a balaclava hat, a camo t-shirt, pants and tennis shoes. These can be used to customise your character.

The PUBG Accessory and PUBG Tracksuit packs will be released on December 14 and December 21, respectively.

“These packs are exclusive to Xbox fans as standalone offers available for a limited time and as there are no plans to feature any in-game purchases in the Xbox Game Preview version, they are the only items that can be purchased during this period,” Microsoft warns.
