PUBG Xbox to get Miramar map this month

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

If you'd like to send Henry free stuff (he'll take a Vive Pro, thanks) contact him via email at henry.stenhouse@allgamers.com or catch him on Twitter, here.

Say hello to Pecado!

The Xbox version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds will finally get access to the desert map Miramar this month.

Bluehole announced the news via a developer update on the game’s forums, stating that Miramar would be hitting Xbox Test servers in April.

The game’s second map, Miramar has been available on PC since December, while the Xbox One has been limited to the original rainy isle of Erangel.

The map brings new weapons and vehicles to the game, but the announcement also states that the update will include “crucial gameplay optimizations” too. These include improving the way textures at a distance are rendered and mitigating the pop-in effect. Thanks to the patch, the game should also be smoother now when larger numbers of players gather in a single location.

Along with stability updates, the patch pushes in some new “designs for out-of-game menus and screens.” These should allow for the inclusion of time-limited event modes and custom matches.

Sadly there’s no word yet on if or when PUBG’s jungle Savage which recently underwent testing on PC will be coming to Xbox.
