PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is one of the hottest games out there right now, despite the fact that it is currently in Early Access and not a full release. Perhaps the key to its success is that the game is constantly being updated, adding features and fixing bugs as quickly as seems possible for such a big game. Today sees a new update heading out to players on Steam, along with new details about updates to come, which include some highly anticipated features.
Check out the PUBG Update 18 patch notes below, followed by the current details about patches to come over the summer.

Player customization was also mentioned quite a bit, as players always want more options. Three additional crates will be added in the August update offering new clothing options for players to unlock via in-game currency. There will also be a rudimentary microtransaction system introduced soon to test a new crate.
“We have implemented a very basic key and crate system for this test. You can use your Battle Points (BP) to buy the crate on the REWARDS page. While the Wanderer Crate and the Survivor Crate will be free to open, the Gamescom Invitational Crate can be opened with a key which you can buy for $2.50 each.
“Proceeds from the sale of the keys to open the Gamescom Invitational Crate will be used: To provide funds needed to organize the event. To provide a prize pool for the invitational winners. To support a selection of charities.” This pay-to-open crate will be removed once Gamescom is done.
