However, due to an "unexpected issue" that occurred during testing, the update will now be delayed for an indefinite amount of time. For you to run the game, you must uninstall ReShade. PUBG Corp, developer of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, has announced that the anti-cheat update for the PC, which was scheduled to roll out today at 1:00 pm AEDT, will be delayed.
One piece of software that will be ironed out with the patch is ReShade, although while you won't be banned if it's detected on your system, you won't be able to play the game while it's installed.
While cheating has often been commonplace when it comes to games like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, where you can die very rapidly if you're caught by surprise, it's apparently gotten way worse in the last few months.
To help wrap our heads around just how huge a problem this is, the PUBG anti-cheat service, BattlEye, regularly provides updates on the number of PUBG bans it has carried out.
A MILLION Accounts Banned in January Alone According to BattlEye
"ReShade not only behaves like a cheat program but can also be used for cheating, and must therefore be blocked". This took a huge jump last month, with BattlEye revealing that an additional 1 million bans were handed out in January alone.
The developers broke the news via Twitter and promised to have more information about a possible release date soon before thanking fans for their patience. This is because players use them to modify the appearance of the game and gain an advantage.
PUBG is available now for PC and Xbox One.
