Deston (Codename: Kiki) is the 9th playable map for BATTLEGROUNDS.

Deston will be the largest map PUBG's "ever made." Might be a little over 8x8 since last promised, it features Airboats and Ascenders for vertical travel.

Summary[]

Deston is a near-future city that has been ravaged by the elements. Is quite unique in its diversity, featuring not only crowded cities full of near-future buildings, but vast grasslands, dense swamps, and more. Dangerous storms, powerful floods, and of course the tolls of time, have all contributed to the downfall of this once thriving city. Built upon a tamed frontier, the lands around Deston still very much belong to nature with a blend of rocky highlands, floral planes, and dense swamps with bits of 21st century civilization dotted throughout. It is a Battleground unlike anything we’ve built before and we’re excited to see Deston inhabited once again.

The city has the most verticality PUBG has ever built into BATTLEGROUNDS and it's filled with interesting sniper-nest style points of interest, rooftops loaded with emergency parachutes, and buildings easily scaled with the new Ascenders. This isn’t to say that the entire city can be explored. Taking lessons from Haven, not every building is fully playable, with single floors, or sometimes just single chambers, open for gameplay and highlighted so that players on the ground can easily learn where snipers can fight from.

Out in nature, our new swamplands are completely unique to Kiki, with ankle deep water, and dense cover to allow for compelling cat and mouse gameplay without having to swim everywhere. We’re also looking to add an Airboat to better navigate across both land and sea. For those hoping for a more traditional PUBG gameplay, Deston will also have plenty of fielded area for those iconic battles that players enjoyed in Erangel and Miramar. [1]

EXCLUSIVE FEATURES/CONTENT

  • AIRBOAT: A vehicle that specializes in land and sea traversal. Its amazing utility is balanced out by less than ideal cover for passengers.
  • ASCENDERS: While at special areas on the map, players can use the Ascender to quicky ascend or descend great distances.
  • Cell Towers, Drone Access Rooms, Bluechip Detector
  • ADDITIONAL FEATURES: After releasing Deston, more content will be added exclusive to the map such as new weapons and vehicles.

Background[]

Bankrupt and ruined by a catastrophic hurricane, Deston was left to rot - what remains are hulking desalination plants, overgrown algae farms, and flooded urban sprawl. However, this does not mean the city is completely empty... now these lands serve a whole different purpose.
