This week’s PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds patch, which only just released on test servers, will be making its way to live servers later today.

The patch added new features to PUBG’s player reporting through the replay, and removed the ability to see the remaining passengers on the plane to improve early-game performance.

Earlier today, the test server was updated once again, though this time with no new fixes or changes. Instead, PUBG Corp added two new crates to the roster. Like the previous Biker, and Desperado crates, the two new ones come with a host of cosmetic items.

The Militia crate will join the existing roster, and it’ll be free to open. It has a 40% drop rate, which is the highest among the rest of the free crates. The Fever crate, on the other hand, will get its own placement on the game’s crates page, and you’ll need an Early Bird key to unlock it. Both can be bought using BP.

Like it did with the Biker, and Desperado crates, PUBG Corp also published the odds for every item included in the Fever, as well as the Militia crates. There are four outfits in total you can assemble from the various clothing items.
