PUBG New Map And What Else Is On The Horizon

This is the Official description of the new map

The wait is over. Our 9th new map we’ve been teasing about all this time is finally here this update. Welcome to the 8x8km near-future and ravaged world: DESTON!

Deston (formerly known as “Codename: Kiki”) presents you diverse biomes – a flooded downtown embracing one of the tallest skyscrapers you’ve ever seen in PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS, a murky swamp, clear coasts, beautiful mountains, and unexplored islands.

However that isn’t all, we are seeing specific support for the newer generation of consoles. So here’s what the patch notes say. For those unsure on the differences between FXAA and TAA, then this may be worth reading.

Xbox Series X

  • 60 FPS
  • 4K
  • FXAA ↔ TAA

Xbox Series S

  • 60 FPS
  • FHD
  • FXAA

PlayStation 5 With 4K Monitor

  • 60 FPS
  • QHD
  • FXAA ↔ TAA

PlayStation 5 With Non-4K Monitor

  • 60 FPS
  • FHD
  • FXAA ↔ TAA

So for those on Xbox Series X, the game will have will 4K and offer 60 FPS. Xbox Series S will run at 60 FPS on a 1080p resolution. Therefore what’s interesting is the PlayStation 5 version is running at 1440p. Which in a period of upgrades and people asking if we have the right to free upgrades, this isn’t a native upgrade. So any upgrade would most likely be free as the game is free to play.
