According to Tencent Games, the publisher of the popular PUBG Mobile, approximately one hundred million people play the game every month. The free-to-download and play mobile title launched last year in February, and managed to have a steady player base since.
However, in spite of its outstanding player base, PUBG Mobile’s fans reported numerous players that are cheating and hacking the title.
This week, Tencent and PUBG Corporation have made an announcement stating that they are taking further action against widespread cheating taking place in PUBG Mobile. Both companies announced they had advanced their anti-cheat structure with new software and procedures.
The new system will observe players and verify their behavior against a huge and constantly growing library to cross-reference when identifying suspicious software. What this means is that it will monitor and penalize anyone caught cheating. Additional consideration will be put on those who are reported by other players. Even though the news is welcoming, it will be intriguing to see how it is used in PUBG Mobile from now on.
Moreover, the security team used game observation to impartially observe players who have been reported via the game’s system. They will make sure only gamers utilizing extra software or other methods of hacking and cheating to restrain from the game’s environment are prohibited. The team can effectively monitor gameplay to discern between the use of improper software and player skill, and also uncommon game incidents due to lag or packet loss.
“We want players to know that we are 100% committed to providing a fair gameplay experience for everyone,” Vincent Wang, General Manager of Global Publishing Department from Tencent Games, said.
“We take enormous pride in the game we work on every day, and cheaters cheapen all of our work. We’re doing everything possible to keep cheaters out of our game as much as possible, and hundreds of team members are dedicated to this task,” Wang stated.
