Rockstar Has Online Cheaters Firmly In Their Sights
Hey hombre. You a dirty, rotten, low-down dirty cheat? You think you can get away with that forever?
Rockstar is preparing another update for Red Dead Redemption and it's specifically designed to target the no-good cheaters in the online multiplayer mode. The developer realizes that there are a few "rotten apples" who are ruining the excellent online experience for others, and Rockstar isn't about to stand for it. Next month, new measures will be in place to counter hacking and cheating; but in fact, they've already started as they've said they "won't hesitate to promptly ban offenders for however long the developer deems necessary." The impending update will also give us "anti-grief measures" for the Free Roam Mode; those who have been unfairly oppressed will have the option to transport and respawn at any location. Oh, and the instant those bullies get six consecutive kills, they will land a "Most Wanted" status, which will alert everyone on the map that they have a "player killer" in their midst. NPC law enforcement will also be alerted. Yeah, try and survive now, punk.
We can't quite understand why people have to cheat. But sadly, it's part of the online experience...it's just good to see developers taking appropriate strides to counter the morons.
