DSOGaming is reporting that PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds gets a new smaller-scale map called Sanhok. Spanning 4.4km the new map is inspired by the islands of Southeast Asia and is designed for speedier combat. I'm sure the rapidly shrinking playerbase had nothing to do with the need for a smaller, faster map.

Check out the video

Sanhok is available now on PC following a testing period that gave players the opportunity to experience the all-new map and provide feedback during active development.

Nah it could be for people who just don't have the time to play the larger ones, I like to hate on PUBG as much as the next keyboard jockey but seriously some of those games can take a lot of time and speeding things up from time to time is a nice change.

The title of this thread is a win lol! I kinda feel bad for PubG but trying to sue your competition out of existence is not much of a business model.

Sue your competition, then copy what they do!! All while saying screw your player base, optimizing and continuing to offering a playable game..

Sadly it is a very effective business model, it just makes you look like a dick bag, but how many of their players know or care that they are doing it, and then what percentage of those players would stop playing because of it?

I think what is making pubg Get a little old is having to jump from the damn airplane each and every time, run around for half an hour maxing out gear, then get shot immediately.

Dr. Disrespect has said it as well as many others and my self.

There needs to a mode that you can choose where you just spawn somewhere on the map with guns and shit all around you and get the battle started much faster.

Or spawn with a fully equipped package already on you.

They sort of have that with the war modes that run periodically - spawn with a KAR and a ghille suit or some such. I find those modes to be more fun than the standard mode, or at least something fresher and different. Still have to jump out of the plane, but it's a little quicker.

gave the new map a spin this morning... seems fun, looks sharp. And for whatever reason the game does feel noticeably smoother. Not that it was an issue before, yay 1080Ti

That being said I do play it a lot less... I used to make a fun extra amount in steam credit just selling those stupid free crates you get with battlepoints, paid for a few steam games for sure.

These days though I'm mostly distracted by Astroneer.

I don't get the hate...yes Bluehole did a dumb thing by trying to sue Epic Games (?) but the game is fun. Matches are rarely longer than 30 minutes and typically have 90+ players in them regardless of the size of the map. The headline, while catchy, makes rgMekanic appear uninformed.
