PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds 1.0 test patch datamined, revealing desert map layout, jet skis

Recommended Posts

Sure, everybody is busy having fun with the vaulting mechanics and improved vehicle physics in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ 1.0 test patch, but there are more exciting things to find if you’re willing to dig deeper.


As with all major patches for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, or really any big game, the community has been poking around game files trying to find unannounced additions and undocumented changes.

With patch 1.0 out now on test servers, players datamined a lot of files after taking the patch. So far, game files revealed two major news.

The upcoming desert map, supposed to be part of this patch when it was first announced, didn’t actually make it in this version. Regardless, it seems Bluehole left what looks like a near-final layout with all the town names, roads and so on.

A lot of these names look like placeholders, but it’s hard to say for sure. One Reddit user used UE viewer to extract this snapshot:

A different Reddittor found references to a new vehicle: the jet ski. We only have this raw, early asset but it’s another thing players have been asking for that we’re happy to see is in the works. Take a look:
