On December 7 the first gameplay footage for the new PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds desert map will be shown.

Geoff Keighley has said on Twitter that it will be a live demonstration, and it will unveiled at The Game Awards, Keighley’s annual video game awards show.

Though this isn’t the first we’ve seen of the desert map – having seen pictures before now – it will be the first time we’re seeing the map in action, and actually demonstrated live.

It looks interesting as well: it’s a shelled-out, desolate map, very open, and with plenty of buildings and ruins to shelter in.

There isn’t any word yet on when the desert map will be released; it will most likely be out after the game officially leaves early-access and launches on PC in late December. PUBG will make its console debut on Xbox One in Early Access on December 12th.

It represents a big boon for The Game Awards, PUBG being one of the biggest games on the planet right now. The awards ceremony has fused the awards themselves with a series of important reveals and trailers, boosting its viewership dramatically. PUBG has been nominated for not only Game of the Year, but Best Ongoing Game and Best Multiplayer Game as well.
