Xbox One players have something to rejoice about, because PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has officially hit 1.0 on Xbox One today. The game has been on Xbox Game Preview all this while and now with the official launch of the game, PUBG Corp. is bringing the third map of the game Sanhok to Xbox along with the Event Pass.

For those players that have yet to be introduced to the PUBG third map of the game, Sanhok (pronounced “sah-nok”), it is a tropical map that is half the size of its big brothers Erangel and Miramar, and only measures 4×4 in size. A smaller map means more intense fights and more often. The games will be smaller and the blue circle moves at quicker intervals and with more damage. Players will also find much more loot on this map compared to the bigger one and the reason behind this is give everyone a chance to fight from the get go.

Sanhok map comes with exclusive guns and vehicles, which are not found on the other two maps. The QBZ assault rifle and the QBU DMR are available only on Sanhok. There is a new pickup truck as well that is only available on this map called the Rony.

With the launch of the 1.0 version, weapon skins have also been introduced and players can buy them as well. Along with weapon skins parachute skins has also been introduced and players can buy the Bengal Tiger parachute skin in the Store.
