PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds have updated their banning policy, forbidden players from Steam’s Family Sharing feature.

On the Steam’s community page the developers stated that a number of vulnerabilities have been detected:

“We have an announcement for those of you using family sharing on Steam. We had allowed this feature so that the account holders who own PUBG can use their character with other Steam accounts if they wanted to. However, we have decided to deactivate this feature because we have identified a number of vulnerabilities that are being exploited. Please understand that we are introducing this measure to fight abuse and ensure a fair environment.”

In addition, the developers have noted that file tampering of any kind your game access could be blocked:

“If you tamper with the game files, your game access may be blocked, especially if you delete, modify or manipulate in any way the files affecting any of the game systems and mechanics.”

PUBG Corp also revealed a new anti-cheat solution but stated that it’s still in its early stages. However, the first version will hit servers this week as part of a major push to curb cheaters in the game.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is now available on PC and on Xbox One through the Xbox Game Preview program.
