PUBG Fans Rejoice! Map Selection is Coming

PUBG will be free to play on Xbox from 19- 22 April thanks to Microsoft's Free Play Days  PUBG Corporation

As shown in the screenshot below, players will be able to select the maps they'd like to play directly from the lobby screen.

PUBG Corporation was initially hesitant to include a map selection feature out of fear it might disrupt matchmaking. However, ever since the release of Miramar, PUBG devs had been silent over the matter while players were becoming increasingly frustrated by not getting to play on their favorite maps more often. You know the Custom game servers, we want to give access to many more players this year, and have presets for Zombie mode or some of these other modes, even some modes that players come up with and maybe add those to the game. In December, the developer announced maps would "not be selectable right after PC 1.0 release", however now suggests work on the feature is "almost complete".

PUBG Corp's worry that map selection could have a negative impact on the population for certain maps seems reasonable, and it will be interesting to see just how much map populations are impacted once the feature goes live.

The feature is nearly ready to implement and as soon as it is, it will move into the test servers before going live for all on PC. "We analyzed tens of millions of matches and sorted the data by server, mode and time to make sure map selection wouldn't break the game for anyone", the post insists.

A full list of all of the additions and changes to PUBG can be viewed in their latest patch notes.

Moreover, Greene also mentioned that while other games might incorporate Battle Royale inspired modes he would like Battlegrounds to become a platform to go beyond Battle Royale, too.
