12.1 Patch report
Miramar World Update
Miramar holds a special place in our hearts; launched alongside PUBG 1.0 in December 2017 we’re thrilled to show you the improvements made for Season 12.
Throughout the map, we’ve focused on improving the overall visual quality (lighting especially) while also keeping a close eye on improving player interactions with the environment to improve your gameplay experience. In comparison to the previous Miramar, rulesets have been changed based on balance updates.
Expect an overall smoother experience, with reduced object clutter, less troublesome coastlines, adjusted cover across the map, and more.
While points of interest will still feel very familiar, we’ve introduced key changes to improve core gameplay and keep things feeling fresh. Keep an eye out and let us know what you think!
The following items have been added to the Miramar loot table:
We have improved the visual fidelity of textures and materials across the map. Additional cliffs have been added for steep slopes, which clearly indicate areas that cannot be climbed easily.
Cliffs have been improved across the map and now look much better overall.
Trees, plants, and other foliage have received vast visual improvements.
One goal was to push a warmer, drier, and arid feel to help separate the feel and color palette from other maps. Looking at the map, we plotted the sun’s arch and tweaked the lighting setups to represent different times of day better.
We aimed to create a softer image with less contrast to help with eye strain while still ensuring longer distance engagements.
In the existing weather types: Sunny, Sunset, Sunrise, and Cloudy, the intensity and color have been adjusted. Sandstorm and Dusk will be introduced in Challenger Mode. Finally, improvements were made to the bunker and interior lighting.
Building and Object Updates
Many buildings and objects across the map have received visual improvements.
Reduced clutter across the map to improve ease of movement, especially around building entrances.

The navigation system is intended to make it easier to navigate through tabs and lists, and the improvement of the key guide display method allows for priority learning of operation methods and functions while maintaining system consistency. Finally, UI design improvements have been made to make it easier for players to see where they’re navigating and make the information they’re browsing more visible.
