PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds‘ latest build will introduce a new weapon skin system into the game, including new cosmetic crates. PUBG corp is also contemplating region-locked servers.
Currently, PUBG uses a system where players are matched using their ping; they claim that it has shown great results and they don’t want to stop there.
They’re considering region-locked servers where only players residing within that particular region would be able to join and play. Players in other regions will not be able to see these servers, however, if two players from different regions were to squad up, then they would have access to both of their regional servers.
As mentioned in the Steam community post: “One of the solutions we are considering is operating servers so that only those players who reside in that region can connect and play. These servers will be made invisible to players residing in other regions. But, at the same time, if a player in an exclusive server region forms a team with a player from another region, they can connect to and play on any of the servers available to either of them.”
As for the weapon skins, the new weapon skin system comes with a different UI. The skins can be acquired via either the Triumph crate, which you’ll need to unlock with a Weapon Cosmetic Key, or the Raider crate, which can be acquired without any form of payment.
You can check drop rates for the skins here. The latest update is live on the PUBG test servers and should be coming to the main game shortly.
