Thankfully, the game's development team over at PUBG Corporation have acknowledged the need for variety and today's Game Awards event was the ideal time to display what new map Miramar has to offer. Stay tuned for more news and info on The Game Awards and PUBG. Do note, that this map will be free to all players. The latest addition will drop when Miramar and Erangel releases for players too cool off when traversing the new desert map. When we made a decision to create a new map, we focused on creating an environment that is very different from Erangel. With the amount of rubberbanding going on in the test servers at its worst moments, hopefully, this third wave of testing will bring forth a ton of optimizations ready to get the game going smoothly at launch. We've known about Miramar for quite some time, as the game's titular lead designer Brendan Greene has teased it numerous times over the months.

Flawless conditions ahead for Geminid meteor shower, pairings of moon, planets
The Geminids are probably the best meteor shower of the year-often exceeding the Perseids in August and the Leonids in November. The meteors emanate from the Gemini constellation - hence the name - and this year, we're in for a particularly dazzling show.

With PUBG hitting the Xbox One next week, it will be interesting to see how different the game is on the Xbox One versus the PC version. But those areas are few and far between, with Miramar favoring wider and more open desert expanses and more intricate, condensed skirmish areas filling the space between the large-scale cities.
