PUBG Anti-Cheat Update for PC Delayed, Reshade Blocked Now
PUBG Corp. announced a few days ago the arrival of a new anti-cheat system to PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. This implementation was scheduled to arrive yesterday on PC; however, the company decided to delay the update.
“PC players, the patch for the anti-cheat update has been delayed, as an unexpected issue has occurred while testing its compatibility. We will soon update you when it will be released. Thank you for your understanding,” wrote the studio on Twitter.
From the Battle Royal forums, the company clarified that, despite the delay, they have already blocked the use of ReShade. The main objective of the new anti-cheat system is to block third-party programs like the one mentioned. This is because players use them to modify the appearance of the game and gain an advantage.
“BattlEye, a part of our anti-cheat solution, has blocked ReShade. For you to run the game, you must uninstall ReShade. If the game files are already damaged, you must also reinstall the game,” the company said.
PUBG Corp. stated that it will block any program that is considered a cheat or is used for such purposes. Finally, the company said that the ReShade blockage will be permanent.
By December 2017, the security system of BattlEye had already banned more than 1.5 million accounts of PUBG. Despite this, the number of cheaters did not decrease. Proof of this is that only in January there were more than 1 million banned players. So, it is normal for the company to work on its new security system.
PUBG is available on PC and Xbox One. Are you waiting for the arrival of this new update? Do you think that the number of cheaters will decrease? Let us know about your opinion in the comments below.
