Chicken cheaters beware…
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds will soon allow players to report cheaters directly from the in-game replay system.
The news was revealed as part of a Steam Community blog post listing what will be available PUBG’s next update. Currently available on the game’s test servers, the reporting system has been expanded upon to create “a fair play environment in PUBG”.
Per the blog post: “This means that you no longer need to be killed by a suspected cheater for you to be able to use the in-game reporting tool”.
Players will be able to report directly from the player list, as well as on the timeline when observing or following a match. The post encourages players to use the system to make the developers aware of cheating players who are “undermining your enjoyment of the game”.
Two new crates will also be added to the game, with test server players being granted “100,000 BP and 6 keys” to test the stability of the system before launch.
It was recently revealed that PUBG Corp. CEO Chang Han Kim plans to launch the title on “every platform”. The game also helped Steam hit another milestone for concurrent users, peaking at 18.5 million.
