PUBG is getting a new map this week.
In a tweet this morning, PUBG Corp. revealed after four rounds of testing, Sanhok will release on PC Thursday as part of Patch #15.
Sanhok will be PUBG’s third map, and it comes with its own exclusive weapon, the QBZ95, an assault rifle holding 30 rounds. The new QBZ95 assault rifle replaces the existing SCAR-L on Sanhok, and spawns about 1.4 times as often as the SCAR-L used to.
At just a quarter the size of the existing Erangel and Miramar maps, Sanhok will result in games typically ending more quickly. All matches will still feature PUBG’s signature 100-player count, but several changes have been made to optimize the standard gameplay for the smaller map. For instance, the red zone is smaller and shorter-lasting while the blue zone has shorter waiting times, longer travel times, and adjusts both times based on remaining players.
