In November last year, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds developer Bluehole, issued a public apology about the game's cheating problem that is making it an extremely unpleasant experience for its almost three million PC players. The also vowed to adopt better anti-cheat measures, and according to the latest announcement, Bluehole is almost ready to roll out the new system on the live servers.

"As you drop out of the airplane and the intense journey to become the last survivor begins, the last thing a player wants to see is a cheater," explains the PUBG dev team. "We deeply sympathize with the inconvenience that our players are experiencing due to cheat programs and we are doing our best to fight those who create, distribute and use cheats. Our top goal is to create an environment that facilitates smooth and unhindered enjoyment of all the aspects of PUBG."

The new anti-cheat system has been live on the test servers for a few weeks now, and we finally have some idea of what it entails. PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds anti-cheat measures will rest on two aspects:

  1. An internally developed anti-cheat program
  2. Cheater reporting via the Replay Feature

Bluehole warned that some programs, although harmless, might be temporarily blocked while they roll out the new anti-cheat system. The second important thing you have to know is that if you in any way tamper with the PUBG game files (like deleting the desert map), then you could get banned. Lastly, a big change comes to Steam Family sharing.

Below is a summary of the new anti-cheat measure coming to the PUBG live servers.

  • In-game Report Function: The current system is being upgraded to deliver faster and more accurate reports.
  • File Modification: Those who tamper with any PUBG files, be it deleting, manipulating, or modifying it could get banned.
  • Account Sharing: Steam Family File Sharing will be disabled as it exposes the game to exploits

Bluehole also announced that they now have a dedicated team to combat cheating, and that they are committed to keeping on improving the system, and taking "firm measures" against "developers, distributors and users of cheats."

The above anti-cheat measures will roll out on the live servers next week.
