PUBG Battleground has emerged as one of the most prominent and popular video games in recent times. The developers released a cryptic video on their Youtube video recently where they shared a hint at a new map that will be revealed later this year. In the latest development, Krafton released a teaser of the upcoming ‘Deston’ map which will be coming later this year in PUBG Battlegrounds
Deston previously referred to as Kiki, is set to be the ninth map to join the roster. While, there is no released date for Deston currently, it has been confirmed that it will be released later this year as part of patch 18.2. Last year in 2021, when a teaser was released, Krafton’s blog post claimed that it would be coming in late 2021 or early 2022.

Meanwhile, developers had to spend longer than anticipated while developing the map, but the extra development time will have likely allowed them to refine it to the best of their ability and iron out any kinks that would drastically affect the gameplay experience. As per reports, the Deston map is going to be the addition to the PUBG Battleground map pool, while the new 8×8 urban map (code name Kiki) will come with skyscrapers, and swamplands, subways and underwater buildings coming in late 2022.
Earlier, Krafton posted the details of Kiki Map in a blog post where they claimed that 8×8 goodness doesn’t end with Tiger. “In late 2021/early 2022, our 4th 8×8 map will launch. Kiki will boast a diverse set of locations, from mysterious underground labs to massive skyscrapers to swampland to subways to underwater buildings,” stated the blog.
The blog further informed that developers are looking at many different locations to add thrill and challenge survivors in our most diverse and exploration-focused Battleground yet. Krafton is widely regarded for bringing amazing maps and new content to the game as gamers are waiting for a new map in PUBG Battlegrounds where they can explore new areas and more.
