Bluehole has given a name to the map that’s been in a testing phase for quite a long time. Previously known as Savage, the map has received a new name, Sanhok. The closed beta testing has finished, and Bluehole is preparing to host a new one available to every player that owns PUBG.
Unlike the previous testing rounds, this one will exclude the need for obtaining a closed beta code and will be available to everyone who owns PUBG. As Bluehole noted on their official Twitter page, the test will begin this Thursday, May 10 at 7 pm PDT and will last until Friday, May 11, 4 am CEST.
Sanhok (previously Codename: Savage) will be open again for testing. Everyone who owns PUBG on Steam will have access to this round.
Test begins: Thursday May 10, 7pm PDT / Friday May 11, 4am CEST
Test ends: Monday May 14, 4am PDT / May 14, 1pm CEST pic.twitter.com/oKseINakzX

Just as a reminder, this is the first 4×4 map in PUBG that will come to live, after final polishing is done. This testing phase will have high importance and impact on the exact date of release. Shall it become available soon on the Live servers, it remains to be seen. However, the jungle-themed map looks quite fantastic, and the jungle foliage resembles a nostalgic experience to Arma 3’s Tanoa.
Judging by its size, it should be the most exciting map to play, since every match is expected to include a lot faster initiation and more dynamic gameplay.
