New PUBG crates let you dress up like a Biker or Desperado

I want your clothes, your boots and your level-three backpack.

Forget the silly patch notes - there are new PUBG costumes in town (on the PC test server)! Now you can dress up like a Biker or a Desperado!

That's a Desperado jacket apparently.

The words are capitalised because they're the name of two new PUBG crates, each of which come with a whole pile of fancy dress to pop on. There's all the leather you'd expect from a Biker crate, plus a polka dot t-shirt, gas mask - for some reason - and much more. The Desperado crate, meanwhile, has awesome-looking spiky punk knuckle gloves. There's no gameplay advantage to what you wear other than stunning players with your remarkable eye for an outfit, or lack thereof.

If you're on the test server you'll be given keys and Battle Points to access the chests. Which of the four chests you'll receive is random, as are the contents, but it's weighted 40 per cent to 10 per cent in favour of the new chests, apparently, and the drop rates of contents are openly divulged.

The in-testing PC patch, the first of 2018, also brings some proper changes to the game. Cheating is a big focus for the team and there's a new reporting system which lets you flag players directly from replays.

Game performance is another big issue, and to that end, visibility has been reduced while you're in the air at the beginning to smooth things out.

There's also more cover added around La Bendita on Miramar, better squad team colours, and various improvements to replays. Full notes and crate contents below.

Meanwhile, in PUBG on Xbox One, there's finally support for squad and duo modes while playing in first-person mode.

World

  • Added more objects around La Bendita on Miramar to increase the amount of cover

Gameplay

  • Reduced the visible distance when parachuting down in order to test the optimization of server and client performance at the early phases of the game

Item

  • Changed the design of the energy drink

UI/UX

  • Adjusted the squad team colors (players 1~4) to better reflect their callout names (yellow, orange, blue, green)
  • Adjusted squad team colors to make them more consistent between different colorblind options
  • Added a function where a player can select more detailed criteria for the “Cheating” category in the in-game report tool
  • You can choose multiple items or you can just report without selecting any of them

Replays

  • While player's nameplate is on (H key), now you can check the current weapon of that player by pressing G key
  • Added report button in replay
  • Report button pops up when pressing RMB on the player list (TAB key)
  • While observing / following mode, report button appears on the timeline (J key)
  • Added a care package icon changing effect according to the status
  • The icon will be different when the care package is falling and looted by other players
  • Adjusted replay system so that now a player can watch the replay without extra delay in the following cases: solo mode; when the player won the match; when all teammates are eliminated

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed the issue where character animation is frozen when rejoining after a crash
