A brand new industrial style map has been revealed for PUBG, to be released alongside the game’s Season 10 update, and it’s called Haven.

PUBG Season 10 is set to release December 16 and fans of the battle royale will be excited to know an all-new landscape is included. It was first shown off in the new season’s trailer that fans could expect a new map but very few details were revealed.

A week away from Season 10’s release, the developers have finally revealed everything we need to know about the upcoming update. This includes a detailed breakdown of the new map Haven and the style of gameplay it encourages.

PUBG Corporation
Haven supports up to 32 players at a time in Duos or 1-Man Duos.

PUBG Season 10 map Haven revealed

A blog post from the PUBG Corporation has detailed exactly what players can expect from Haven and where the new map is set.

According to the post, Haven is set on an industrial island in the rust belt of America. The dense map is filled with narrow urban streets and offers an element of verticality with its numerous accessible rooftops. Factory buildings and cranes litter the map’s landscape and provide the player with an industrial wasteland to explore.

It’s worth noting that Haven is a Seasonal map and will only be available for the duration of Season 10. On top of this, the map’s smaller size means there will be a maximum of 32 players in each match. Haven is available to play on PUBG’s test server all the way up to the release of the new season.

PUBG Corporation
Haven is a seasonal map and will only be available for the duration of Season 10.

Haven is split up into six different districts that each offer the player a unique industrial area to explore:

  • Carbon Steelworks – A massive mill and steelworks complex that offers players a set of rooftops to explore.
  • Coal Yards – An industrial wasteland filled with accessible cranes and material piles.
  • Industrial Zone – A zone filled with factories, storage facilities, and chemical manufacturers.
  • Residential Zone – Filled with high-rise apartments and crowded urban streets.
  • Overpass – The overpass runs through the center of Haven and offers players a place to hide from enemies.
  • Docks – Located on the coast, the docks are filled with old barges and storage containers.
PUBG Corporation
PUBG Season 10 is set to release on December 16.

The community will be hoping the new season lives up to the hype, with the industrial and dense landscape offered by Haven.

Remember, though, it’s a limited-time map so you’re going to have to act fast if you want to try it out! At the end of Season 10, it will disappear.

Not long left until Season Two of Warzone kicks off later tonight, so we’ve got everything you need to know about the new update, including new points of interest on the Verdansk map, two weapons, modes, and more.

A new season means new content for Call of Duty’s prized battle royale game. Warzone is set to receive a brand new POI in the shape of a large cargo tanker, along with other undisclosed changes to Verdansk. A couple of new modes will also be making their debut, as well as the FARA 83 assault rifle and LC-10 SMG.

On top of all this new stuff, Raven Software are also making changes to the game and adding in fixes for several bugs. All of the details can be found in the official Season 2 patch notes below.

New Warzone locations in Season 2: Ship POI & map changes

New cargo tanker ship POI coming to Warzone in Season 2!

First and foremost, Verdansk is getting some major new points of interest in what feels like forever, starting with the Vodianoy cargo tanker ship that’s approaching the Port. The tanker is said to be carrying “unknown cargo,” so players will be able to access it for loot, although it could end up being a hot spot early in the season.

That’s not the only new POI in Season 2, but it’s the only one we know of right now. Activision said that “something major is beginning to rumble deep underground” within Verdansk and that players can explore these areas at their own risk since further intel is currently “classified.”

New Warzone weapons in Season 2: FARA 83 & LC-10

The FARA 83 assault rifle can be unlocked by reaching Tier 15 of the Season 2 Battle Pass.

Black Ops Cold War is set to receive six new weapons in Season 2, which means that they’ll all be available in Warzone as well due to the two games’ integration within each other.

Two of those weapons will be released right at the launch of S2 – the FARA 83 assault rifle and LC-10 SMG. The FARA 83 is a remake of the iconic Galil AR from previous Black Ops titles, while the LC-10 is a brand new addition to the series.

The FARA can be unlocked by reaching Tier 15 of the S2 Battle Pass while the LC-10 is available after Tier 31.

New Warzone modes in Season 2

Rebirth Island Resurgence Extreme

Activision
Rebirth Island is about to get wild in Season 2!

Rebirth Island’s new Resurgence Extreme mode will be available right away when Season 2 launches. This is essentially the current Resurgence mode but on steroids, increasing the player count up to 90!

“The high-octane, respawn-enabled Resurgence mode on Rebirth Island will be taken to the extreme during Season Two, upping the max player count in the limited-time Rebirth Island Resurgence Extreme mode. Up to 90 players can drop onto Rebirth Island for an incredibly frenetic fight for supremacy, as they look to eliminate every last member of enemy squads to prevent them from getting a second, third, or even forth chance at revenge.

Just like Resurgence, squad members can spawn back in if their Rebirth Countdown hits zero and at least one of their allies is still alive, and specific Caches around the map will refresh their items frequently to ensure there is no shortage of firepower around the island.”

Exfiltration

Activision
Warzone Season 2’s new Exfiltration mode will be played on Verdansk.

Exfiltration is a new mode that will be played on Verdansk. It will be added in-season, meaning it won’t be available at the start of Season 2.

“It’s about time that the exfil chopper arrives before the Circle Collapse fully closes in. During an Exfiltration Battle Royale, a portable radio crackles into life, coming online somewhere in Verdansk. The Operator who secures this radio and holds onto it for a sufficient period of time automatically wins the game for them (or their squad, in non-Solo modes). To ensure their exfil isn’t by the book, anyone holding the radio is marked on the Tac Map as if they were under a Most Wanted Contract (also known as an HVT or High Value Target) with all Operators also receiving intel on how much longer the current radio holder has until they win. Other than this new win condition, the same Battle Royale rules apply. Expect a circle collapse and a winner to be determined by last Operator or squad standing, should nobody receive an early exfil with the radio.”
