PUBG Corp debuted the trailer for this new map, a desert area called Miramar, last Thursday night during the game awards and announced that the map would go live on the game’s test server at midnight.

From July 21st to 25th Bungie hosted an open beta for Destiny 2, allowing everyone to go hands on with one of 2017’s most anticipated games.
