    Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds, a battle royal game now available for PCs via the Steam Early Access program, has added its first in-game skins as a means of testing its crate and key system and funding its GamesCom PUBG Invitational. On August 3, three kinds of crates will be available, with all offering costumes inspired by the live action Battle Royale movie released in 2000.

     

    The three Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds crates are the Survivor, Wanderer, and Gamescom Invitational Crates. The Survivor and Wanderer crates are opened with Battle Points, the in-game currency people earn from matches. The Gamescom Invitational Crate needs a $2.50 key to open. The money people pay for that key will fund the Gamescom 2017 event and create a prize pool for it, as well as support as-yet-unnamed charities. On August 27, 2017, the Gamescom Invitational Crate will be “retired” and only the free-to-open crates and system will remain. All three crates will be able to be traded on the Steam Community Market, and keys for Gamescom Invitational Crates will still be sold even after it is retired.

     

    Images of the Battle Royale movie-inspired costumes, as well as which crates they will appear in, have been released. This first outfit will appear in the Survivor Crate. (I can not pin down exactly which Battle Royale movie character it is inspired by.)

    The Wanderer Crate has an outfit designed to look like Shogo Kawada’s.

    There is a Shiroiwa Junior High School uniform from Battle Royale. It is found in the Gamescom Invitational Crates.

    I’m not sure who the final outfit is inspired by, but I think it looks similar to the Shikanotoride Junior High School uniform from Battle Royale II: Requiem. It is found in the Gamescom Invitational Crates.

    This is a very obvious take on Battle Royale’s training video girl. It is in the Gamescom Invitational Crate.

    This Gamescom Invitational Crate outfit absolutely looks like Takako Chigusa’s track suit.

    Finally, the Gamescom Invitational Crate will have a Kitano outfit inspired by the track suit the 7th Grade Class B teacher wore in the movie.

    Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds is immediately available for PCs via Steam Early Access. It will come to the Xbox One in 2017.
