PUBG Update Notes

I, for one, am ecstatic to hear that the red zone will be getting tweaked. I have my volume up way high, so as to properly hear footsteps and identify the direction of enemy fire, and always cringe when close to a red zone.

As for the PUBG anti-cheat solution, I’m hoping it works well, as I’ve run into my fair share of cheaters, and it really sucks to die to an invulnerable enemy, or a player using map hacks.
