During last week's Gamescom Daybreak Game Company revealed that a new map will be coming to H1Z1: King of the Kill. The new one is based on the currently existing map but has been reworked to show much more attention to the details, including props and objects, etc. 

The official site has a small Q&A about the specifics about the map's creation as well as a video that shows it as it is currently. 

Can you take us through a bit of the design process for the new map?

The original map was created in a way that felt a bit like an assembly line. During its construction, we had the artists on different teams creating individual props and objects which would then get implemented into the map by the designers. Although this got the job done, it was time consuming and very inefficient when it came to creating new features. When we started constructing the new map, we knew that we had to rethink this process. The team wanted to move away from that assembly line feeling, so we came up with a more collaborative approach. We started from scratch, working closely together from the beginning, and were able to more efficiently create a better-detailed map.
