PlayerUnknown Offers Details on PUBG’s Next Map

During this year’s E3, a new PUBG snow map was teased and a tweet from the game promised a Winter release, but that was about all the information we had. Since then, Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene has filled in a few more blanks for everyone.

According to Greene, the new snow-covered map will fall in size somewhere between the 8x8km of Erangel and the 4x4km of Sanhok. “We found 8-by-8, it’s great, but it takes an inordinate amount of time to get maps of that scale done,” said Greene. “We don’t have exact sizing yet, but it’ll be somewhere in between I think.”

As for the apparent tracking of footprints in the snow that the teaser video seemed to suggest, Greene said that it’s too early to know if that feature will make it in. “We of course would like to have footprint tracking in the snow, but I can’t promise anything right now,” said Greene.

In the meantime, the Sanhok map is due to arrive to PC players of the battle royale shooter on June 22nd.

Our Thoughts

Having a snow map without the ability to track footprints would be a little bit weird, honestly. I mean…walking in the snow leaves footprints. And the tactical considerations of tracking footprints, like making sure you’re not looking at the ground too much or setting decoy footprints to try and throw people off the trail, would be intriguing. That, of course, assumes people play PUBG with tactical thinking in mind.
