The new PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds ‘Codename: Savage’ map will enter testing next week.
The first testing window for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ new 4×4 km map will open from 7pm PDT on April 2, and run through to 4am PDT on April 5, 2018.
In a post on the PUBG blog, the game’s development team says:
“We promised you that you would get a chance to try the new map very early on and we are delivering on that promise. We haven’t released content so early in its development since our alpha testing stage. We’re doing this because we want to start getting your feedback as soon as possible and drive the development in the right direction.”
The map, which was teased by Brendan Greene at the Games Developers Conference, is built around delivering shorter games, with fewer vehicles, less running, but more early phase fighting.
The blog goes on say that the playable build is still in an early state – so temper those expectations – and that the next test will be bigger. Details on how to participate in the first Codename: Savage test will be announced on Monday via PUBG’s various social channels.
