It looks like Tencent might soon release the new Erangel 2.0 map. According to a report by Sportskeeda, the revamped version of the original PUBG map is available in the beta of Game for Peace, a Chinese version of PUBG Mobile. The new map is said to come with a number of new features, mechanics and graphical improvements.
As per the report, the game now features a route planner that can help players plan a path in advance. This should allow players and teammates to know exactly where to go without the need to open the map and lay down a new marker every time.
The report further notes that Ultra HD Graphics settings have been added to the Game for Peace’s beta, so it should make its way to the global version, sooner or later. As of writing this article, the Ultra HD option is present in PUBG Mobile, but tapping on it only shows the pop-up that says “coming soon.”
This feature is said to give players more control over the button layout when driving. This will allow players to choose exactly where they want the controls to be when in a vehicle. Currently, players can only choose the type of driving controls they want in PUBG Mobile, but they cannot change those controls around.
The report also notes that Erangel 2.0 will feature improved graphics with a higher level of detail. It was noted that building interiors are more detailed, while some structures have been modified and colours tweaked.
Of course, it is not yet known if or when these updates will make their way to the global version of PUBG Mobile. However, it stands to reason that these updates will be made available on the global version, sooner rather than later. For now, PUBG Mobile is testing a new map currently known only as ‘Secret Map’.
