Two new crates of clothes objects have arrived in Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds, one in every of them paid and one free. I’m instructed they’re impressed by 70s and 80s trend. The odds are nonetheless that the crates provides you with hideous clothes, simply horrible, actual terrible seems to be, however no less than there’s no probability of the sport casually handing you one which requires shopping for a key to open it. The new paid crate will not be thrown into the common reward pool, see, so that you’ll solely get one if you would like it. Today’s replace additionally features a few modifications meant to enhance efficiency, although it’s not clear how efficient they’re.
The most notable of the performance-oriented modifications is which you can now not see gamers contained in the airplane. The door stays closed and, so you know the way many individuals are left to drop, the UI now has somewhat diagram displaying which seats are occupied. This change is supposed to enhance efficiency for each purchasers and the servers within the early sport.
Some breakable fences on the Miramar map have been changed with unbreakable fences or partitions, additionally within the title of bettering efficiency, so do examine earlier than ramming into something you keep in mind as breakable.
How a lot do these modifications enhance issues? Dunno. I wouldn’t count on huge enhancements. Some gamers are literally reporting their framerate has noticeably worsened with this replace, although others say theirs is similar and… such is the magic of Internet self-reporting and the wonders of the myriad conceivable laptop configurations.
As for the brand new shinies, they arrive within the Militia and Fever crates. The Militia crate is free to open, and dropped into the pool of potential reward crates. You’ve bought a 40% probability of receiving a Fever crate while you hand over Plunkbucks for a crate. The Fever crate is a completely separate choice within the menu, and should each be purchased with Plunkbucks then unlocked with a key which prices $2.50.
I opened a load of Fever crates on the check server (which gave some free keys for testing functions) and principally acquired disagreeable white turtlenecks, which actually satisfied me to not spend any cash on them. There are some good sunglases and some vibrant odds and ends in there, however the odds of getting something good are low. The probabilities of getting every merchandise are listed in the patch notes. Though if you happen to do get one thing uncommon sufficient, it is possible for you to to swap it for a strong gold yacht so who the hell is aware of.
In March, the builders plan to lay out their update plans for the months forward, which embrace a brand new map. Fingers crossed it has fog as a result of I do miss that Erangel variant, which the devs eliminated (together with the wet one) when the sport left early entry. I realise these weren’t well-liked with everybody, however a map select option is coming so curmudgeons might depart us to stumble gaily by way of the mist.
