Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds developers Bluehole, had earlier teased the launch of a new smaller map for the game. And now the map has been released in a closed beta on the experimental server of the game.
The new map on the experimental server can be accessed by those who have access to it. And the developers are giving out keys to the experimental server on its website. Once the user logs in to the website using their Steam ID, they are offered a key to add the PUBG Experimental Server on their games library.
The wait is over. If you have access to the Experimental Test Server, you can play our new map, Savage, right now!

The new map which is codenamed “Savage”, is a collection of tropical and muddy islands which measures 4 x 4 kms in area. First person perspective is limited to the European and North American servers while the rest have third person perspective only. Here’s what the company had to write in its subreddit.
“The closed experimental server for Codename: Savage is now live, and we need your feedback. The purpose of this thread is to gather all of your thoughts, ideas, and reactions to the map so the devs can make better-informed changes.
Remember that this map is still in early development—many parts are unfinished. That’s because we want to get the community involved early to drive development of the map in the right direction. Once we’ve gotten the map into a better state, we’ll run some other, bigger tests.
The first test will run from 7pm PDT on April 2nd (today) until 4am PDT on April 5th.”
The developers have said that this is an incomplete map and the purpose of the beta is to gather the feedback from the people so they can iron out the details before the official release.
