There are multiple biomes throughout Deston, including the very first swampland to be put into the game. The game also includes central plains, the concert district, and the western highlands. Each of these biomes will be vastly different and force players to adapt to whatever surrounds them at any given moment. Additionally, the map will include a gas pump that allows players to refuel their vehicles, but fans are being warned that the pump is liable to explode if shot by another player.
One of the game’s publishers, Krafton, discussed the new map and even gave some insight on what fans can expect when they fight in Deston.
According to Krafton, “Deston is the largest, tallest, and densest map the game has ever seen,” Considering the previous history of maps within PUBG, Deston is already looking to be exciting and filled with content for the players.
Krafton continued the description and said ”Throughout a match on Deston, players will experience dense urban settings with tall vertical buildings to rolling hills, plains and newly designed swamps. The map aims to deliver the sweet spot between fun gameplay and immersing players in realistic battlegrounds. Deston will challenge players to learn each biome of the map to understand how it will challenge them to consider different gear, vehicles, and cover in order to claim a Chicken Dinner.”

Finally, PUBG also announced the arrival of two new guns to the game, the Origin 12 slug shotgun and the MP9 submachine gun.
