New Snow Map
This map is currently very early in development, and we’re aiming to bring it to both PC and Xbox One this winter. Expect to see some new mechanics built around the snowy terrain.
We’re pretty hyped for Sanhok to come into the live servers – as the two maps currently in play (Miramar & Erangel) and starting to get a tad repetitive. Hopefully a smaller map will force for high intensity gunfights.
The introduction of a Ballistic shield will really shake up the play style Meta – being able to walk into a house with a shield shutting down the opposing players ability to camp corners – whilst also wielding a one-handed weapon will be brutally interesting experience. So far they’ve only mentioned that the shield will be coming to to the War Mode – but hopefully they’ll transition it into the main games.
Lastly, the Snow Map; the idea to of playing Battle Royale on a Hoth like desert makes us all excited. Hopefully they’ll also bring out so winter versions of Helmets/Gear to help you blend. It’ll also be interesting to see if they make it snowing or blizzard for weather to obstruct long distance viewing (but after the community feedback and issues with Fog on Erangel – I’m guessing they won’t be using distance limiting weather). According to the E3 Video – the Snow map is due anytime this Winter!
