PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds just seems to be struggling at the moment.

Developer Bluehole recently tried to take on those cheaters with some new anti-cheating code - but that saw many legitimate players banned through no fault of their own. People were reporting freezes and even crashes to desktop following the introduction of the new anti-cheat measures.

"We are doing our best to resolve this issue".

Advice regarding the compatibility issues is reportedly available via the game's forums. If you're not able to launch the game, follow the instructions here.


Additionally, if you are having trouble launching PUBG, Bluehole suggests adding both "tslgame" and "tslgame_BE" to the exception list in your antivirus software. For that reason the developers Bluehole chose to roll back the update, in order to fix those issues.

Further, they added that the last patch of the game shall be rolled back.

The new update will mark the seventh major update the game has received since leaving early access back in December, and it introduces a number of new features to the game, all of which were detailed by the games latest blog post that accompanied the patch notes.

PUBG Corp also say they'll "continue to resolve" some of the compatibility issues caused by the update, and that the switch will require players to download a further small patch. We apologize for the inconvenience. That's especially true in the light of Fortnite's continuing success.
