Bluehole's hit MOBA third-person shooter that is "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" has been getting a lot of love from its player base as of late. This is the Gamescom Invitational Crate, which will contain the largest assortment of clothing and accessories for players.
"PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS has sold more than six million copies in four months since its Early Access launch on March 23, 2017 with peak concurrent users, again surpassing the 422,000 mark with 422,618 simultaneous players at one time on Steam".
Though there are millions of players, only 80 will be competing at Gamescom together.
The first major eSports tournament for the still unfinished "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" will be held next month at Gamescom. Console play won't be cross platform, at least to start, however. The new cosmetic items will be outfits and clothing items inspired by the classic film Battle Royale, and will come in 3 different crates: the Wanderer Crate, the Survivor Crate, and the Gamescom Invitational Crate.
The developers affirm that this move will allow them to test out the finalized crate system that will be implemented in the game's final release outside of early access, and that the paid crates aren't here to stay. We're getting first-person server options for NA and European Union solo and duo modes, an FOV slider for first-person, and a new rifle.
A buggy, unfinished game will have its very own ESL tournament with $350,000 in prizes next month. After the said gaming expo, the game will revert back to its free-to-open system. You also may want to work on your skills before August arrives because those same attendees may get a shot to enter the tournament and get some of the massive prize pool. At present, the Twitch Prime set for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is routinely selling for over $20, with some listings going for nearly $30 - a decent profit, given that the items were being offered up for free. The Gamescon crate can be purchased with Battle points or purchased for $2.50.
