PUBG “The Making of Sanhok” Documentary Shows Behinds The Scenes

This Is How The Map Was Made

The third map in PUBG is here and you can check it out if you want to but you will need to pay extra in order to gain access to it. According to the official PUBG blog:

“From the beginning, it was our goal to let you in on Sanhok’s development—you even helped us build it. Now that the map is out, we want to give you an even deeper look behind the scenes at PUBG and into the creation of Sanhok from concept to release,”

If you have not seen the documentary concerning the new map then you can check it out below:

If you have not played the new map and are interested in getting back into the game in order to check it out then the following are the main highlights of the map that you need to know:

  • Sanhok is 4km x 4km map (one fourth the size of Erangel or Miramar). Although games tend to end a little more quickly on this tiny island, battles are still massive. Every game still features 100 players.
  • Certain settings have been customized specifically for Sanhok to better fit its unique design. Details are below.
  • Performance
    • Faraway players and vehicles aren’t rendered the same way on Sanhok, resulting in some server performance improvements.
  • Gameplay
    • Weather in Sanhok changes dynamically.
    • Players can throw apples while waiting to board the plane in the in-game lobby.
  • Redzone
    • The redzone is smaller and shorter-lasting on Sanhok.
    • The center of the redzone appears outside of the playzone (the white circle). This means players are more at risk when outside of the playzone.
  • Bluezone
    • Bluezone on Sanhok has shorter waiting times and longer travel times.
    • The bluezone is also dynamic. It checks remaining player numbers before deciding the next circle, adjusting the waiting time and travel time accordingly (this doesn’t affect circle size).
  • Spawn Balance
    • The item spawn rules have been customized on Sanhok to get you equipped for battle faster.
      • ARs, SMGs, and DMRs are spawned more often. The total item spawn rate has been increased by 5% compared to that found in the fourth round of Sanhok testing.
      • 8x scopes and 15x scopes don’t spawn on Sanhok. However, they may still be obtained from care packages.

The new map should bring some much-needed content to PUBG but it does come at a price considering you already paid for the game.
