PlayerUnknown’s Battleground (PUBG) players are in for a treat this week as those who have access to the test build will be able to be among the first to get lost in the desert.
That’s right, PUBG Corp. have announced that a second test build for PC 1.0 has been released week which will include the upcoming desert map, and within it will come a brand new map-exclusive weapon – the sawed-off shotgun.
This announcement came just after the last batch of testing concluded and the test servers were shutdown:
The test servers are now offline. Thank you for helping us test and for all your feedback.
The desert map will be available in the next round of testing. Here's a new weapon, exclusive to the desert map. We will keep you posted regarding the schedule. pic.twitter.com/KCSiMsy3Ug

The next batch of tests are yet to be unveiled, but when it is available, players will be able to dive into the game and test the new map along with the new weapon.
In the mean time, players can get their first-look at the desert map at The Game Awards where the first global unveiling will take place. The Game Awards takes place on December 7 at 5:30PM PST.
