The map selector is about to become more essential than ever since PUBG's third map, Codename: Savage, has already become playable on the new test client on Steam.

No mention was made of when this functionality is expected to reach the Xbox One version of the game, but considering console players are yet to even get access to a second map, a map selector isn't going to be needed for a while yet.

Before we get to that however, this week PUBG Corp unveiled details for Patch #11 coming to test servers soon. "Today we want to tell you all about it, including the process we went through while developing the feature".

The unearthed vehicle is an armoured UAZ, leading fans on Reddit to speculate about whether the vehicle has something to do with PUBG's upcoming bullet penetration system. It's a feature many players worldwide have asked for since the game's second map, Miramar, was announced past year.

"You've heard us talk about open development a few times, but what does that really mean?" "We analyzed tens of millions of matches and sorted the data by server, mode and time to make sure map selection wouldn't break the game for anyone", the post insists. If they change their mind and want to play on a different map, they can unselect their previous choice. This will make a big difference in the early phases of each game. If both maps are selected, the game will randomly choose between them.

"For us, this was the most troubling issue, and it required a lot of discussion and serious research", said the team. Especially if they keep milking players for loot box money when these other new games may not have that.

Whilst most of the update is focussed on bug fixes and general gameplay optimisation, there's also a brand new Western Military Crate available. "We were inspired by a cave system the team found outside of Bangkok".
