It will be the eighth map in the game and will arrive for PC on 7th July and for console on the 15th.
It promises to return the game to its "Battleground roots" being the first 8x8 map since Miramar launched back in late 2017.

Maps released since then like Sanhok and Karakin, then have been smaller, more action-focused affairs providing less opportunity for slower, stealth-based playstyles.
Little more information was shared by the developers. A short teaser posted to the game's Twitter account opens with that iconic plane and flight plan flying over a map.

"Codename Tiger 8x8" adorns the map, and we learn that the map will be called Taego.

The aesthetic is seems somewhat similar to Mirimar, a dusty, desert environment with perhaps a little more greenery on offer.
Krafton will hope that the new map will excite many to come back to the game, which while still hugely popular in many parts of the world, is far from its 2017 heyday when it dominated Twitch and made stars out of players like Tyler "Ninja" Blevins and Herschel "Dr Disrespect" Beahm IV.
