PUBG Hot News: February 2018 in Review
The developers of PUBG been facing the flip side of the game`s popularity. Lots and lots of cheaters have appeared in the virtual world of this shooter. They try to get unfair advantages and spoil the experience for other players (in fact, for themselves as well). Cheaters have various motivations, such as earning more by selling PUBG skins or just feeling a kind of superiority. To save the game from being ruined, the developers decided to concentrate on anti-cheating activity, postponing updates in the gameplay and virtual maps.
A Road Map for 2018 hasn’t even been revealed because of cheaters. PUBG Corporation has promised to announce it later.
Still, there has been an interesting update to PUBG! It contains new crates with new skins. Gamers have got Militia and Fever Crates. The first one is just another crate that can be bought for Battle Points – it has 40% drop chances (others are Desperado 20%, Biker 20%, Wanderer 10%, Survivor 10%). Fever Crates are of a special type. You can buy them anytime with BP, but Early Birds keys are needed to open them, which cost real money.
