Here's the first in-game footage of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' new desert map

And version 1.0 on PC has been dated too.

Developer Bluehole has shown off the first in-game footage of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' long-teased and hugely anticipated new desert map.

There's only 20 or so seconds of new desert map footage, admittedly, with an additional 60 seconds of bluster around it, but an awful lot has been packed into those brisk few moments. Those with a finger on the pause button and an eye on the video below will spy a bunch of locations from around the map, recently revealed to be called Miramar, alongside various vehicles and weapons in action.

if you're itching to get your desert boots dusty after all that excitement, Bluehole has offered further good news: Miramar will be playable on its test servers from December 8th at 12am PST - that's 8am on Friday morning UK time. It's due to arrive on Xbox One early next year.

That's not all though! After a hectic year of development, and a record breaking influx of players, Battlegrounds' version 1.0 will, says Bluehole, arrive on PC on December 20th. The Xbox One Game Preview version is due on December 12th, as previously announced.
