We’re in two minds about this one.

Bluehole Games’ PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is getting a slate of new skins for its August update. Most of the skins will be available through loot crates, but some will have to be unlocked through monetary means.

The new skins are inspired by the film Battle Royale, the iconic movie that pitted a bunch of teenagers against each other. It was a pretty dark film, but they looked fly. Gamespot has a full gallery here.

Here are some of our faves.

The crates for certain items will cost $2.50 (£2) and come much sooner than was previously expected. Bluehole Games had announced paid cosmetics but not until after the game’s launch from early access. They are releasing this early to see how it fares and to test it.

They said on a Steam post:

“We’re aware that many of you want new in-game skins to further customize your character. While we won’t be rolling out the full system until we move out of early access, we would like to provide more content as well as test the basic crate and key system we want to implement in the final version of the game.”

Like it or love it, it’s totally cosmetic, so you don’t have to pay if you don’t want to.

In other Early Access news, Epic Games’ Fortnite is having troubles when it comes to balancing the monetisation. The game has been in development for a few years but finally dropped an early pass for pre-paid people. Basically, you buy the game’s founders pack, you get four days to play around with it before anyone else, along with a bunch of stuff.

The game is now available through the Epic Games launcher because apparently everyone needs their own launcher now.

People are concerned that the game heavily relies on buying card packs, which give you materials and weapons.

We’ll update if we can get our hands on it.
