Battlegrounds, the online multiplayer game developed by PlayerUnknown, reached two million sold copies. This might be one reason which prompted the developers to continue creating content for the game, as they are currently working on some new features.
Battlegrounds introduces loot crates
Brendan Greene, the main developers, admitted that they were preparing something for their fans. He said that they would introduce special root crates hiding upgrades. These upgrades will be unlocked with the help of certain keys.
However, they plan to win something out of these crates, namely money. You will not have to pay to unlock the upgrades, but the loot might hide some paid content. For instance, after you unlock one of the crates, you might discover a skin which you would probably have to pay for if you want to use.
PlayerUnknown are planning to use the revenue to improve the game and bring more content
Greene tried to encourage the players, as they will not put a price on everything. They want to make it easier for their fans, so most of the items will be free. However, they will also offer rare items, and these are the ones which will receive a price. He declared that their reason is strictly ‘economic’. They want to make sure they can bring more content to their fans in the future.
Fans usually do not enjoy when games start charging them for skins or other special items. There are some games which constantly charge their players and bring nothing in return, as the developers do not resolve the bugs or refine the general aspect of the game.
However, Greene finds this method effective for their ‘economy’, and thinks fans should not be worried. He promises they would try to make Battlegrounds better, especially now, when they have achieved an impressive number of buyers.
