Bluehole has announced that paid vanity items will be introduced to PlayUnknowns Battlegrounds with the release of the games next monthly update.

From August 3rd, players will have access to three new crates that will contain new vanity items inspired by the Battle Royale movie. Two of these crates will be free to open, but the third will require a key that costs $2.50.

All three crates will contain items inspired by the Battle Royale movie, some of which you may have seen in our older artworks, the developer explains. The first and second crates, named the Wanderer Crate and the Survivor Crate, will be free to open. Each of these crates will include one set of the themed clothing, on top of other cosmetic items. The third crate named the Gamescom Invitational Crate will have the most diverse pool of themed clothing.

Proceeds from the Gamescom Invitational Crate will be used to fund the event and provide a prize pool, with the rest going to a selection of charities.

Once Gamescom is complete, on August 27th, the Gamescom Invitational Crate will be no longer available and removed from the game, the developer added. We will then return to the free-to-open system. The Gamescom Invitational Crate, Wanderer Crate and Survivor Crate will be tradeable on the Steam Community Market going forward. Keys for a Gamescom Invitational Crate purchased on the Steam Community Market will still be available to purchase in-game.

As mentioned above, the next monthly update will go live on August 3rd and includes first-person only servers, an FOV slider for first-person, and a new weapon.

PlayerUnknowns Battlegrounds is available now on PC and will be coming to Xbox One later this year.
