BattlEye has announced they have banned one million cheaters in the game PUBG (or PlayerUnknown’s Battleground) in January alone through their Twitter account. The title has been plagued by cheaters, and the problem doesn’t seem like it will be solved anytime soon. BattlEye states that even with the bans, the problem continues to escalate. This is incredibly unfortunate, as cheating, especially on PC, can destroy the entire experience for players. All of this just to up their stats in a video game, which is pretty pathetic.

PlayerUnknown’s Battleground officially launched in December for Microsoft Windows and Xbox One and has taken the world by storm ever since. To be honest, I hadn’t even heard of it until about a month and a half ago. PUBG is battle-royale type PvP (Person versus Person) game where up to 100 players fight to the death in a massive firefight in order to be the last man standing. PlayerUnknown’s Battleground was nominated for and won several Game of the Year awards for 2017, including Best Multiplayer Game at The Game Awards 2017.

The game will only garner more attention and become more well-known as time goes by. Some think it will even re-define the future of shooter-type genres as we know them. While that remains to be seen, cheating has been a huge problem in PUBG, so hopefully BattlEye can get a handle on the problem and at least minimize its effect on honest players’ experiences while playing the gaming industry’s latest hit shooter.
