The new map in the game, Haven, is an AI filled map. It is small in scale, allowing only 32 players per match. Furthermore, there is a complete background story that goes with it.

Players will be faced with a new threat during their matches, an enemy faction working against them. This faction, named Pillar, is heavily armed and is none too happy about you being on their turf.”

What makes Haven even more interesting are the AI powered enemy equipment from which players have to hide. There are also robots guarding high-end loot and not to forget there are other players too. So much in such a small space will make this map an absolute adrenaline treat to jump into.

Avoid the Pillar Scout Helicopter attempting to track and spot survivors from the sky. Those unlucky enough to be caught by its spotlight will need to move quickly to avoid the Pillar Tactical Truck as it closes in and attempts to quickly eliminate its target with bullets and fire.

“Finally, players will have to deal with Pillar Guards and Commanders. These soldiers are heavily armored, but those who manage to take them down can find powerful gear in the caches they guard.”
