With this new update, the developer wanted to apply a new anti-cheat feature that will “block different helper programs that alter the graphics or aid in gameplay in some way”. This update will also block PC players who are using the ReShade software. However, the good news is that a BAN is not going to be imposed on them, they will not be able to play PUBG if ReShade software is detected on their PC. In order to get playable access back to PUBG, all they have to do is uninstall ReShade software along with other prohibited software.
