PUBG Update Brings 2 New Cosmetic Crates, Price Expected to Hike

PUBG update brings new content with more bug fixes, clothing, and accessories in the form of 2 new crates. The patch adds an improved reporting system as well to report cheaters from the match directly. This will make it easier to flag suspects without being eliminated first. This PUBG update also aims to increase performance by reducing visible distance when parachuting during the round.

PUBG update will be making other small changes to improve performance as well.

The new crates are called Desperado and Biker. Desperado will require a key to open as seen before in Gamescom Invitational crates. If you purchase the Early Bird key from Steam you will be able to open this crate as well.

Anyone who downloads the PUBG test client will receive 6 Early Bird keys and 100,000 BP to identify any issues during testing. You can see all the PUBG update patch notes for further information below.
