by February 20, 2020 0 comments

Australia recently witnessed a catastrophic natural disaster in the form of Wildfires, the largest the country has ever seen. It claimed over a billion animal lives, 33 human lives and destroyed over 3000 homes.  The fires also engulfed around 18.6 million hectares of the country. While the fires are now contained, relief efforts are ongoing and PUBG Corp has decided to pitch in be releasing a limited edition Australia Fire Relief Pan skin. 

100% of the profits from the sale of the skin will go to charity to help with the relief efforts. The pan costs $2.99 on PUBG PC and 300 G-Coins on the console. The Australia Fire Relief Pan skin will only be available for a limited time; 19th Feb to 18th March on PC and 27th Feb to 26th March on consoles. 

“For those who purchase the pan, we thank you for your contribution to this effort. If the pan is not for you, we encourage you to research the disaster relief efforts and donate directly to a charity of your choosing. It will take some time for Australia and its environment to recover from a disaster of this scale, but we are thankful to be in a position where we can help in some way and are grateful to have fans like you willing to contribute to such a worthy cause.” – PUBG CORP

The art for the skin was made by a community artist, @SWatercolour. The skin features a very endearing image of a koala hugging a kangaroo.  

This isn’t the first time that a gaming studio has helped in efforts with Australian Wildfire. Bungie, the developers of Destiny 2 had released limited edition Destiny 2 t-shirts earlier, whose proceeds were donated to charity. Activision released the Outback Relief pack for Modern Warfare which racked up $1.6 million. Humble Bundle also released an Australia Fire Relief bundle which gave 29 games for $25.
