You may want to know the PUBG Deston map release date, as it's set to be the game's most ambitious map yet due to its scale, verticality, and variation in different areas. PUBG changed the landscape of gaming back in 2017 by popularising the battle royale genre, and since then the game has been expanded massively with new maps, weapons, modes, and gameplay chances. Deston, which was previously referred to as Kiki, is set to be the ninth map to join the roster, so read on for the PUBG Deston map release date and more.

The same blog post that revealed the map also detailed a bit about what locations it would feature, claiming, "Kiki will boast a diverse set of locations, from mysterious underground labs to massive skyscrapers to swampland to subways to underwater buildings – we’re looking at many different locations to thrill and challenge survivors in our most diverse and exploration-focused Battleground yet." We also know it will be the largest map that PUBG has ever had, potentially making it the first 9x9 or 10x10 map. 

As seen on a PUBG DEVTALK, the map includes Ascenders, the ability to fill up vehicles at gas stations, pillar gear, new cell towers that propels players in the air. Alongside the new features, the map will also include the new MP9 SMG and Origin shotgun as ground loot.
