PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is one-year old this week (counting its Early Access period), and the developers behind it celebrated it with thank-you video showcasing a new map.

In the midst of thanking players for making PUBG one of the biggest games in the world and their honest (sometimes brutal) feedback, Brendan "PlayerUnknown" Greene and CEO and Executive Producer of PUBG Corp Chang Han Kim showed off some quick footage of the newest map.

The new map is much smaller than previous ones, clocking at 4x4 kilometers instead of the usual 8x8. The map features a more tropical, forested look, with straw huts replacing some of the usual architecture. But don't worry: It still hosts all the same guns and murder you're used to.

The map is set to release for public testing in early April, since the team wants to have players test updates earlier in development and leave more feedback.
