The map will, thankfully, be a lovely and large piece of land.

There were talks that the new desert locale for Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds will be a smaller affair than the existing Erangel map. Thought to be only 4×4 km it now appears it’s not true at all.

In a talk with Eurogamer, the game’s creator confirmed that it will be 8×8 km.

“For 100 players an 8×8 just makes more sense and it gives more flexibility when we move onto custom games and things like that.”

The game is out now in Early Access. Go, shoot, have fun.
