Marking this significant release, we are celebrating in style.

RONDO – PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS’ 10TH MAP
RONDO stands out in PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS with its diverse terrain, from serene lakes and bamboo groves in the southwest to distinct ridges in the northeast. Notable areas like Yu Lin's forested beauty, Tin Long Garden's waterfall-rich landscape, and Mey Ran's riverside architecture offer varied strategic play. Jadena City's skyscrapers and neon-lit streets promise intense urban battles, while NEOX Factory introduces unique combat scenarios. Additional areas like Rin Jiang, Jao Tin, and the Stadium present their own challenges. The map's innovative features include destructible bamboos for tactical depth and the Escalators for rapid building traversal. RONDO also introduces the JS9, a 9mm SMG ideal for close combat.
RONDO is available now on PC and on Dec. 14 for console. All map details and the full Patch Report video for this month’s update are available on the official PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS YouTube channel.
