PUBG Test Servers Arrive on April 24th, Features Miramar Desert Map

We defer to the frame rate analysis gurus at Digital Foundry, who took a hard look in March at what had and hadn't improved for the console version in its first three months. Today we want to tell you all about it, including the process we went through while developing the feature. "Map selection is something that players all over the world have continuously asked for", the developer wrote. When Savage hits the public servers, it will also be added into the pool for map selection. We analyzed tens of millions of matches and sorted the data by server, mode, and time to make sure map selection wouldn't break the game for anyone.

The second problem: Players in different regions have different preferences and playstyles, so how could we make map selection work for all of them? "We'll still have to keep a close eye on it, since it could become problematic as new maps continue to be added", said the company. A major concern for PUBG Corporation was making sure that a map selector wouldn't drastically segment the player base further - something that separate queues for different modes such as solo, duos, and squads already do. If both maps are selected, the game will randomly choose between them.

Bluehole's plan is to include the new option into the test server for PUBG before the live server, but they have not been outspoken regarding when they intend to do so, though they have said that the feature is nearly complete.

The album itself is incredible , so we never doubted that " Babe " wouldn't be. Tay's earning money beyond her wildest dreams.

PUBG Corporation says that the look of map select could change before it's ultimately implemented, and unfortunately doesn't give a release date for the feature.

The PUBG Free Play Weekend runs from now until 22nd April 11:59 PDT, and any Battle Points earned while playing can be carried across to the full version of the game - which is still in Xbox Game Preview - should you make a purchase.
