Testing for PlayerUnknown’s Battleground’s upcoming map Codename: Savage will open in just a few days.
As detailed in an announcement post on Steam, the first testing window for the 4x4km island map will open on April 2 at 7pm PT/10pm ET (April 3 at 3am UK/1pm AET) and conclude on April 5 at 4am PT/7am ET/12pm UK/10pm AET.
This first test will be “more limited” since “it’s a super early build” of the map, but the studio promises the next test will be larger. Details on how players can participate will be provided on Monday.
PUBG director Brendan Greene offered a sneak peek at the map—which features a lush forested area and branching river—earlier this month at GDC.
In addition to the Codename: Savage map, there’s plenty more on the horizon for PUBG in 2018, including an 8x8km map and new game modes.
