Latest PUBG patch introduces better protection against cheaters


PUBG Corp., the developer behind the popular Battle Royale title, announced a new patch for PC that’s rolling out on the test servers right now. This latest update will hit the live environment tomorrow morning and will include a few minor improvements to the red zone and introduce a new anti-cheat system.

The game still has a few issues with performance, connections from those in different regions, and cheating. The first two can be easily fixed while protecting legitimate players from cheaters is a little more difficult — it’s very much cat and mouse. The new system is hoped to improve things and make it more difficult for those who wish to use exploits.

The patch will hit the live servers at 8 am (GMT) with maintenance expected to last approximately three hours. Here’s what the release contains (excluding the new anti-cheat system):

  • Fixed the issue where the sound of explosions would become too loud when played simultaneously.
  • Balanced the number of simultaneous explosion sounds, in order to optimize game performance.
  • Fixed the issue where the explosion sound wouldn’t play following the falling sound of a bomb.
