The Miramar PUBG test server will run until PC launch

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 or catch him on Twitter, here.

You can keep getting those desert rays right up to launch.

The current PUBG test server will run until the PC launch on December 20.

This means players will be able to enjoy the delights of the new Miramar desert map right up until the official release.

The test server client also has also created significant improvements to performance for most users, making it likely many will stick with it until launch. Forcing users to returning to the sluggish base title until release would make for an especially cruel form of torture.

The official PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Twitter account confirmed the news, stating that the test server would remain with a smooth transition to “Phase 2.”

The test server may still go down for periods of maintenance however, to allow for final adjustments pre-release.

PUBG officially releases on Xbox One tomorrow, Dec 12, with the PC version launching Dec 20.
