PUBG Season 9 takes players to the site of an active volcano. There, you’ll have to battle both enemy players and dynamic lava flows to grab that chicken dinner.
PUBG Season 9 kicks off today, which means it’s time for the player base to explore the island of Paramo. If you’ve yet to see it before, Paramo is home to an active volcano, which will make each game feel a little unique. As you play on the small-scale map, you’ll have to deal with dynamic lava flows and an ever-changing map. It’s quite a spectacle. Watch the latest trailer for yourself below.
As you can see, the latest PUBG map has some ridiculous visual flair. Fighting against hordes of other players as a volcano pops off in the background is going to be pretty incredible. As you play, you’ll also work your way through the game’s season passes.
You read that correctly, PUBG Season 9 will have two different season passes. The first is “dedicated to the rich culture and aesthetic of Paramo” and will be a bit different than usual to accommodate a shorter season. After that, the 9.2 update will bring another pass that focuses on a character that fans will likely recognize.
It’s also worth noting that the team has created a new official lore site. There’s not much there just yet, but it definitely seems like the PUBG team wants to add some narrative and background to the events of their battle royale. I’ll be interested to see where they take it once it gets updated.
