Here’s how PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is honoring its inspiration

, | News

You can draw a direct line from PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds to creator Brendan Greene’s Battle Royale mod of the DayZ mod of Arma 2. From there, it’s easy to get to the Japanese novel and movie inspiration Battle Royale. To celebrate Gamescom, Bluehole is adding a special loot crate to the game that contains “movie inspired” cosmetic outfits like the one pictured above. These Gamescom Invitational Crates will be available From August 3rd to the 27th. Players will be able to open them using special keys that will be sold for $2.50 each. Proceeds from the key sales will be used to fund the Gamescom PUBG Invitational Tournament. During the same period, special Wanderer and Survivor crates will also randomly drop in the game that will be free to open.
