PUBG Mobile Players Can Finally Play On Miramar, The Desert Map

The devs have added a new matchmaking option along with some gameplay optimization as well.


PUBG PC players have been exploring the desert wasteland of Miramar for a while, but players of Tencent's PUBG Mobile will finally be able to apply their on-the-go tactics to the game's second map.

I've not played PUBG on mobile devices, but I'm no stranger to Miramar on PC. If this is your first taste, be prepared to alter your strategy on this map. There's additional verticality with some taller buildings and there are tons of valleys that will leave you wide open for attacks from the mountains around them, so maneuver accordingly. Get the high ground as often as you can.

Not only will PUBG Mobile players be getting a shot at a new map, they'll get their hands on the new weapons and vehicles that call Miramar home. On the more technical side, social engagement in the mobile game is improved with a local quick match option that lets players team up with nearby friends using a six-digit code. In-game sounds, vaulting, parachuting, and effects have all been optimized as well.

PUBG Mobile is available free right now on Android and iOS. Stay tuned to Shacknews for additional updates. Hopefully, it won't be too long before the island map heads to mobile devices.
