PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ development is still chugging towards its supposed end-of-year release, and today we have some new screenshots of the game’s upcoming desert map.

Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene tweeted out four new pictures of the new location today, including some areas that haven’t been seen before. Greene last shared images of the map a few weeks ago.

The as-of-yet unnamed map is supposed to be part of PUBG’s huge 1.0 update, which has been delayed a number of times with no update given on its release window.

The new map is scheduled to come to the game alongside a number of bug fixes and optimizations, and the long-anticipated vaulting and climbing update. But the team at PUBG Corp. has run into issues in its development and has said that an update will only be given when it’s ready.

With PUBG scheduled to launch on Xbox One on Dec. 12, the window is getting smaller for the 1.0 update.
