The fourth and latest monthly update for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has finally arrived. Delayed by a week due to a technical issue this is technically the July monthly update for the game. It's also the update that officially introduces first-person mode to the game. This update also introduces new cosmetic items into two "free" crates and additional items into one paid crate (you need to purchase a key to unlock it).

Perhaps more importantly, this is the update that adds car horns to the game! BEEP BEEP!
