The latest patch for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) was apparently packing more than just new gameplay features and improvements.
According to Skin-Tracker, a third-party website that often datamines the game for unannounced information, nearly forty-five different skins have been discovered hidden deep in the lines of code. This includes new short and long sleeved shirts, pants, boots and shoes, beanies and caps, jackets, gloves, glasses, and parachutes.
In addition, there are several skins labelled as exclusive for the upcoming Xbox One version of the game. There is one wardrobe combination that features a T-shirt, pair of gloves and trainers; and another with a jacket, pair of pants, and mask.
There is no word on when these new skins will release for the game. PUBG is scheduled to arrive on Xbox One in an unfinished state on December 12. The exclusive goodies should be available by then.
PUBG plans to conduct several testing runs this month for the final version on PC. Provided that everything goes fine, we should see the remaining new skins become available once the game escapes early access on Steam sometime next month.
Update 1.0 finally hit the test servers earlier this week, bringing the much-awaited vauting and climbing mechanics. The developer confirmed last night that the first round of testing has now concluded. Details on the next testing schedule will be provided in the coming week.
Players, all test servers are closed now. Thank you for helping us test the new features! Expect to see more gameplay improvements, balance tweaks and further optimization in the next test. We will give you an update on test schedules next week.
