New PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds map arriving before the end of June

Chris is the captain of the good ship AllGamers, which would explain everything you're seeing here. As well as digging out news and directing all hands to the feature riggings, Chris also finds time to consume all things speedrun and can even understand 70% of what a "half A-press" is.

Previously, Chris was a mercenary for many of the net's biggest game sites, helping their readers understand the convoluted world of digital sports. This culminated in a nomination for esports journalist of the year, and an intense love for the sound of gold dropping out of a dead lane creep.

You can get in touch with Chris to talk about work or the $6million Echo Slam by emailing chris.higgins@allgamers.com or finding him on Twitter. Which is a lot easier now that there's a link here.

PUBG's third map should be done "in the first half of 2018"

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds developer Bluehole has laid out a roadmap for the first half of this year that should see a new map arriving in the next four months.

The third map for what is still the biggest game on the planet will be completed sometime in the first half of 2018, according to a post on the game's Steam community update today.

A more detailed roadmap on the game's upcoming updates will arrive in March, but the team first has to deal with a number of non-content based issues that need immediate attention, chiefly the anti-cheat problem thanks to its explosive popularity.

"We do have a lot of exciting things that we want to share with you, including new content to provide more extensive battle royale experiences as well as improvements and modifications to create a deeper and more realistic gameplay," said the developers in the update. "In March, the team will reveal what you can expect from us in the first half of 2018 in terms of our development and new content plans which, by the way, include a new map."

Previous teases of the new map's location suggest a more varied landscape, somewhere on the Adriatic coastline with snow-capped mountains further inland.
