PUBG teams up with DC Comics to release Joker and Harley Quinn skins

PUBG adding Joker and Harley Quinn in Xbox One Update

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) is making waves this past week with a new announcement about some cool new skins coming to the Battle Royale title. These skins are for the Xbox One version of the game, and are included in Update #3 to the system for PUBG.

As part of a short teaser, which you can view below, PUBG Corp. announced a collaboration with DC Comics to introduce some iconic characters as skins in PUBG. The two characters in particular are everyone’s favorite clown-faced psychos, The Joker and Harley Quinn.

The two outfits will be themed after the Suicide Squad film, and will include various customization options to apply to your in-game avatar. Harley Quinn’s bundle includes the character’s “Daddy’s Lil Monster” outfit and a special baseball bat skin for the crowbar and machete. Joker’s bundle includes the “Night Club Suit” outfit.

In other news, the third update to PUBG on the Xbox One also includes fixes to some bugs in Training Mode, as well as optimizations to the game’s texture streaming, improving performance a bit.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is available now on PC, Xbox One, Android and iOS. The game will also come to PS4 next month.

You can find the full patch notes on the official site, but the highlights are included down below.
