The Venezia PUBG new map concept was posted nearly a year ago in May of 2018. This was before Vikendi had even been released.
As its name suggests, it is based on the Italian city of Venice and is comprised of more than 100 small islands. This is something that would be very different from the current map offerings. Therefore, this would make for a unique type of battle in PUBG. After all, the current set of maps is predominantly land-based which means traversing into the next circle isn’t overly complicated. You can just hop in a car or buggy and safely make it back to the safe zone. The numerous islands would add a much different dynamic to managing the circle, though. There’s no doubt a Venice type map (or Venezia as it has been called) would result in a different playstyle in Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds, especially with so much water between the pieces of land.
Venezia 2.0 ( Pubg new map )
Venezia was designed by IamEzalor and received positive feedback from fellow Redditors. However, their first design was a tad too expansive – including hundreds of buildings and more bridges than we had seen in all PUBG maps combined. While unique, the concern many fans had was that the map’s detail would result in poor performance, even on PC. Consequently, a Venezia 2.0 was released. This included 66% fewer buildings, 50% fewer bridges. As well as the addition of shallow water to run through, and some other minor adjustments.
Could Venezia be the Pubg new map?
PUBG Corporation seems to be keen on adding new maps, as the game’s history has indicated so far. But there has been no official indication of what’s coming up next. With that said, there are currently four maps already and with the game aging, the player count may be a concern. An additional map would only fragment it further and would all but remove the chance of having separate playlists for each map.
As well as a new map (especially with the uniqueness of Venezia) could reinvigorate the game, albeit perhaps in the short-term only.
The maps and the choices they provide are arguably the best features of PUBG. The original map, Erangel, is still popular today and has even undergone some loot balancing changes.
Miramar (the desert-based map) was the second to be introduced to Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds. In terms of landmass, this is the biggest map of the game.
While the first two were officially 8km by 8km (with Erangel being mostly sea), the third PUBG map was Sanhok – a smaller map focused on faster gameplay. Sanhok is a quarter of the size of Erangel and Miramar measuring 16km squared. The most recent map addition was Vikendi. The snow map is a combination of the three previous maps and is also between them in terms of size at 36km squared.
