PUBG is raising funds to aid Australia as it recovers from the bush fires

The team behind battle royale title Playerunknown's Battlegrounds has released a limited edition in-games frying pan to raise funds for Australia.

As announced on Twitter (below), all of the money raised will be used to aid various communities across Australia as they struggle to deal with the ongoing bush fires.

The fires began raging in September 2019, New South Wales' fire department has only recently claimed them to be contained. The devastation caused to the country saw the deaths of 33 people and one billion animals. Many more lives were also affected by the natural disaster.

The Australia fire Relief frying pan will be sold on PC from February 19th to March 18th, it will cost $2.99. However, the skin will come to console on February 27th and will be available for 300 G-coins until March 26th.

At the end of the sale, 100 per cent of the proceeds will go to a chosen charity.

"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," said the PUBG team in its announcement.

"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."

Last month, a new map for the battle royale game was revealed. Furthermore, 2020 is set to be crucial for Playerunknown's Battlegrounds as an esport according to pro players.
