PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds will enter PUBG 1.0 launch on December 20

Although PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has become something of a worldwide phenomenon, gamers everywhere are undoubtedly exhausted of experiencing the same Russian landscape time and time again.

In addition to the new map Bluehole, the publisher behind the game announced three cosmetic packs for the Xbox Ones Game Preview launch of PUBG, slated to release December 12. Thankfully, the game's development team over at PUBG Corporation have acknowledged the need for variety and today's Game Awards event was the flawless time to display what new map Miramar has to offer.

The map looks to be a polar opposite of the Erangel map, offering "harsh and unforgiving desert" instead of lush fields and forest.

Whether you dive in or not, you can get an eyeful of the Miramar desert map by admiring the new PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds trailer below. We've known about Miramar for quite some time, as the game's titular lead designer Brendan Greene has teased it numerous times over the months.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds showed up at The Game Awards 2017, as you'd jolly well hope given how it has dominated this past year in gaming. How convenient! The map will be free for all players, by the way.

As the gameplay trailer revealed, there are a ton of hills, factories, townships and villages in the PUBG Miramar desert map.

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.
