Xbox One players can soon get their hands on PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ second map, Miramar, when the game’s test server goes live for the first time tomorrow.
The test server is available to download at midnight on April 24 in local time, and it must be searched for on the Microsoft Store. It’s listed under the name “PUBG Test Server.”
“As the map is in an early stage of development, some aspects may not function as expected,” PUBG Corp. said in an announcement post. “During the test period and beyond, we will be actively listening to player feedback and using it to improve the build, so please be sure and share your comments, questions, and concerns in the thread below! There will also be ‘bug bounty’ rewards: 150 players who help us find bugs will get some swaggy in-game items.”
PUBG Corp. said that, for matchmaking reasons, the test will be limited to third person perspective on NA servers. But adjustments could be made “depending on how the test goes.”
This will be console players’ first taste of the Miramar map, and testing it on Xbox One will help lead to its official release. The map has been live on PC since the 1.0 launch in December, and it has been met with mostly negative feedback. PUBG Corp. has tried multiple additions and tweaks to the map to help make it feel less open and more lived in.
In a recent blog post, PUBG Corp. further pledged support for the Xbox One version, which still suffers from a number of performance issues.
