Paid Loot Crates Will Be Removed from PUBG on December 18

By Poorna Shankar on November 19, 2019 | News | 0

Those pesky locked loot crates will be removed from PUGB on December 18.

In a developer letter (via PC Gamer), it was revealed that these locked crates will be removed. The changes will be as follows:

  • Random Crates purchased with BP will no longer contain crates that require a key to open.
    • Locked Crates from Random purchases will no longer be available starting Dec. 18th.
  • Crates already in your inventory or acquired via the marketplace can still be opened with the appropriate key, which can still be purchased from the store and can still be purchased or sold on the marketplace.
  • The new Crate will retain the trade value of the highest tier item; the probability for each tier has been adjusted overall to increase the likelihood of acquiring a weapon of an attractive design.

So in essence, the in-game locked crates will be removed, but you’ll still be able to buy crates in the Steam Marketplace, with the team providing the following reasoning,

“We have been thinking about this carefully and we want to ensure that we steer clear of revenue models that fail to satisfy fans, especially if they include a low success rate. We will continue to tweak our business model where possible to offer more compelling value for the money you choose to spend with us.”
