PUBG Corp previewed the upcoming map Paramo in a teaser for PUBG Season 9 released Oct. 10.
The teaser, a scant 13 seconds long, shows an active volcano with black, volcanic landscape and molten lava running in rivers down its side. Smoke rises from the lava. A helicopter flies in from off-screen carrying a shipping container toward the volcano's peak. The release date for PUBG Season 9 then appears on the screen: Oct. 21 for PC players and Oct. 29 for console players.
"What secrets lie in the fog-covered highlands of Paramo?" reads the description accompanying the teaser. "Find out in PUBG Season 9."
PUBG Corp released a lore video about Paramo on Wednesday.
The last new map to arrive in PUBG was Karakin, which PUBG Corp introduced in PUBG Season 6. Since then, the developer has focused on a reworking of the Vikendi map, which saw release in PUBG Season 7.
