Publisher Krafton has announced that the new PUBG: Battlegrounds map, the flooded Deston, is set to launch in July. Deston is a megacity, featuring various landmarks. It’s an 8×8 map, and it will, apparently, be the “largest, tallest and densest” map so far.
Check out the World Art trailer for the new map below:
The description reads:
“A sneak preview of Deston and how the world will be different to the previous maps! Knowing your battlegrounds will surely give you the upper hand in combat.”
According to the announcement:
“The map aims to deliver the sweet spot between fun gameplay and immersing players in realistic battlegrounds. Deston will challenge players to learn each biome of the map to understand how it will challenge them to consider different gear, vehicles and cover in order to claim a Chicken Dinner.”
Along with the new map, a new mechanic is on its way to PUBG: Battlegrounds. There is a motorised pulley, called the Ascender, which will allow players to zip up the sides of buildings like nobody’s business. And they can also zip back down again, like a power-drunk Spider-Man, high on his own web-based power. Plus, there is also a new Emergency Parachute, which is added to your inventory by default.
