What's Inside The New Fortnite Battle Royale Starter Pack?

PUBG gets weapon skins region locked servers under consideration

The latest update to the test servers of the PC version of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has introduced a new weapons skins system plus two new types of loot crates.

In related news, it turns out that despite recent comments made by Brendan "PlayerUnknown" Greene to the contrary, PUBG Corp will soon be trialling region-locked servers.

There are problems with server region locks, because Battlegrounds has different game modes that are region specific.

PUBG Corporation's quest for network stability actually began by implementing a ping-based matchmaking system.

Skins are going live on the test server today.

Fire in Siberian shopping mall leaves at least 37 people dead
The shopping mall, which opened in 2013, has a cinema, petting zoo, children's center and bowling, Tass reported. Russia's Investigative Committee spoke of blocked exits and " serious violations " at the Winter Cherry mall .

The benefits are twofold, as the development team expects this to help both with network issues and "linguistic barriers".

Players of the game have long requested a region lock function because Chinese hackers often join North American and European servers to wreak havoc.

You can take a closer look at the skin in 3D on the PUBG YouTube channel.

The skins will be the only item available in two new crates - Triumph crates and Raider crates. The first of those crate-types, called Raider, is free and non-random, whereas Triumph crates, which are random, will drop weekly and can only be unlocked using a paid-for Weapon Skin Key.

While the V-Bucks and the backpack are nice, the real draw of this pack is its exclusive Rogue Agent player skin that makes the pack just as likely to appeal to the game's most dedicated players as it is to new Fortnite players.
