Bluehole to Deploy PUBG PC Update 5; Includes Sound Fixes and New Anti-Cheat Measure

Developer Bluehole has deployed the PUBG PC update on the game’s test servers, which offers sound fixes alongside a new anti-cheat measure.

The anti-cheat update was scheduled to go live earlier this week, but Bluehole later decided to delay the patch.

“As announced, the new anti-cheat solution that was to be applied today has been delayed”, Bluehole wrote earlier this week. “However, 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.”

It seems that some sort of anti-cheating solution has now been rolled out nonetheless.

“In order to foster a healthy and fair game environment, we have applied a new update to the test servers, as part of our preventive measures against cheat programs.”, community coordinator Hawkinz writes on the game’s official forums.
