PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds blocks players from using Reshade with its latest patch

The latest patch for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is supposedly focused around improving Miramar with more cover and more stuff to discover, making it a more engaging experience to shoot at people there. That’s all well and good, but the more salient change is another form of anti-cheat software being rolled out that completely blocks the popular Reshade application.

For those of you who aren’t aware of it, Reshade is a program meant to add additional specialized shaders to a game’s engine in the hopes of providing a better graphical experience. Some players argue that using it already gives you an edge by making it easier to see other players, others point out that it can be used as a piggybacking platform for cheating tools, and still others argue that it’s seriously just a program to improve the game’s graphics. You won’t get banned for using it, so that’s good, but that’s a bit of an academic point since it’s being blocked altogether.
