PUBG PS4 gameplay video leaked ahead of release

Despite the PUBG PS4 announcement occurring nearly a month ago, there hasn’t been any PUBG PS4 gameplay released. Until now…

PUBG PS4 Early Access

Even with just two days to the release of PUBG on the PS4, Sony and Bluehole remain coy when it comes to PUBG PS4 gameplay footage. However, one gamer found the game on a local listing online which turned out to be legitimate!

PUBG PS4 Gameplay Video

Surprisingly after popping the disk into the PS4, and after a 33GB download, the game is already working. Interestingly, this is significantly more than the PUBG Xbox download size which is 14.5GB.

Moreover, you can actually play online! Well, sort of. Lobbies are available but given the release date is still two days away, there are no players in them! This does mean you can enter the pre-lobby though and get a feel for the game. The below video comes from Redditor u/Tastes-Jammy.

Feedback

In truth, not a lot can be ascertained from the video. The menu is the same as Xbox. When entering “spawn island” the textures take a second to load in. This may seem slow but if the textures load this quickly across all the maps then this is an improvement on Xbox.

We can then see Erangel from the plane before the game finishes giving out the chicken dinner. The video footage was recorded on the PS4 Pro and is described as a solid 30 FPS.

The Real Test Is yet to Come

Roaming the map without any other players and being in the plane by yourself isn’t exactly testing the PS4’s capabilities. The real test will come when there 100 players in the game with close quarter gun fights.

Nevertheless, it is an encouraging start. Console gamers will be cautiously optimistic the game releases with a solid frame rate and that the early input lag that plagued the Xbox is a thing of the past.

A known cheater in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds managed to get hit by the banhammer while he was streaming live on Twitch, creating a wave of cheers among community members.

The Twitch account under question goes by the name of ‘vesprine,’ but the player himself is widely known in PUBG lobbies and online communities for perpetually making new accounts just to use cheats.

“He keeps resurfacing. Same guy over and over. He tries to join Plausible and gets insta-banned,” Reddit user ‘The-Basic-Bro’ said. “He needs a hardware ban at this point. He legitimately cheats non-stop… He has joined looking for squad groups on Reddit and the last two times I have called him out and disgraced him and had him banned.”

While some players want to see more stringent action taken against the player, PUBG Community Manager who goes by ‘Hawkinz’ did his part to stymie the cheater’s effect on the game.

PUBG has come a long way since its launch, but hackers have still been a major problem.

During one of his streams, the player had resurfaced to show off more PUBG gameplay supplemented by the use of in-game hacks.

In the middle of his broadcast, he got a notification in PUBG that read: “Restricted Account – Your session will be terminated due to use of hacks.” Though not much has survived the Twitch account since he was banned, a screengrab by user ‘701dirty’ immortalized Hawkinz’s incredible response as the moment played out.

According to 701Dirty, the ban happened shortly after over a hundred people clipped and reported the streamer while he was playing.

“A few hours later over 100 people clipping and (saying) they got one of his accounts,” 701Dirty wrote. “I saw him have two accounts banned after matches and he tried logging into several already banned accounts… crazy.”

Cheater banned in real time from PUBATTLEGROUNDS

Since its launch, PUBG’s servers have been swarming with hackers that have put a damper on the once-dominant battle royale.

The developers have issued multiple ban waves since the game’s launch in 2017, but are still combating the prevalence of cheaters years later.

Unfortunately, unless more meaningful action against PUBG’s hackers is taken, players like vesprine are going to continue to ruin matches, get banned, then reappear under another name.
