The survival action title is a ideal match for cosmetic items based around Koushun Takami's Battle Royale, especially considering the game was inspired by the gory action thriller.
One of the new Battle Royale-themed costumes that'll be available in PUBG. You can use your Battle Points (BP) to buy the crate on the REWARDS page. The Gamescom Invitational Crate, Wanderer Crate and Survivor Crate will be tradeable on the Steam Community Market going forward. The ability to purchase gear directly from Bluehole is sure to free some pent-up demand. These items will come in the form of an in-game crate that you can buy for $2.50, which will include several themed items. Both will be free to open. Three additional crates will be added in the August update offering new clothing options for players to unlock via in-game currency.
Starting from August 3rd, Bluehole, Inc.is giving players the ability to purchase vanity items in PUBG with the proceeds to be used as prizing for winners at the Gamescom PUBG Invitational and for charities of Bluehole's selection.

The format has contestants living in a villa in Majorca and pairing off for love, and a shot at a £50,000 ($65,000) cash prize. This week, Chris chose to surprise her with one of the hottest voices of the moment; Love Island's Iain Stirling.
The Invitational will, not surprisingly, have a pretty decent prize pool. "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 & key system we want to implement in the final version of the game". The event will offer a solo event, duo event, a duo event in first person perspective and and a squad event.
Once Gamescom is complete, on August 27th, the Gamescom Invitational Crate will be no longer available and removed from the game. "We want to celebrate this by inviting eighty of the top players from around the world to compete in the first offline invitational", says Bluehole VP and Executive Producer Chang Han Kim in a press release for the announcement.
The event will be broadcast across Battlegrounds official accounts, including Twitter, Facebook and Twitch and will even offer ways for viewers to interact with players - though exactly how hasn't been specified at this time.
