PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS’s latest map, Codename “Savage”, will return to the Test Servers soon, with improved textures, for people to have another bout at fighting down to the last man in a new map. Especially since the map selector is out on both the test servers as well as the official servers.
"Savage" was just a codename. Our new 4x4km island map will return for testing soon but this time with its final name: Sanhok (pronounced “sah-nok”). https://t.co/MfRyLpD5wD pic.twitter.com/bqHQC1jXlY

Promising new details about the map suggest that it was made based on the islands found in Southeast Asia, including the ones found in Thailand and in the Philippines. The map is called “Sanhok”, which is the Thai word for “fun”, further suggesting the strong Southeast Asian influence over the dev team while designing the map.
