Latest initiative to address in-game cheating allows for closer look at players and account limits while under observation
LOS ANGELES – July 21, 2020 – PUBG MOBILE is making it harder yet again for cheaters as the game introduces a Safety Observation Period, the latest tactic in a continuing effort to maintain a fair gaming environment for all.
With the help of artificial intelligence and machine learning, the new system in PUBG MOBILE will automatically identify players who are attempting to gain unfair advantages by violating the game’s end-user license agreement. Once any triggering behavior is detected, players will be removed from the matching queue and required to play the game under a Safety Observation Period.
During the Safety Observation Period, players will not be matched with players who are not under safety observation and will not record any earnings or stats from their matches. They will also be unable to team-up or spectate message, and only be able to access limited game modes until the observation period. If players damage the fair gaming environment while under observation, they will be banned.
“PUBG MOBILE’s official Operations Team is fully committed to continue guaranteeing an amazing game experience and treat all users equally and fairly,” said PUBG MOBILE Team. “By taking a closer look at players who don’t respect the rules of the game and play fair, we’re continuing to show our commitment to providing a fair gaming environment for all.”
ABOUT PUBG MOBILE
PUBG MOBILE is based on PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS, the phenomenon that took the world of interactive entertainment by storm in 2017. Up to 100 players parachute onto a remote island to battle in a winner-takes-all showdown. Players must locate and scavenge their own weapons, vehicles and supplies, and defeat every player in a visually and tactically rich battleground that forces players into a shrinking play zone.
