Since the beginning of online multiplayer, game developers have been dealing with hackers in largely the same way – by wielding the mighty ban hammer. Rockstar, however, has come up with a different solution for cheaters exploiting the multiplayer portion of Max Payne 3, the company’s newest bullet-filled action title.
“Anyone using these nefarious methods will be dealt with,” the developer said.
In a post on the Steam forums titled “Taking Aim at Cheaters,” a Rockstar representative outlined the new policy in which cheaters will be quarantined from the rest of online players. In the aptly titled “cheater pool,” hackers will only be allowed to play against one another, getting a healthy dose of the same exploits they’ve been using against innocent players – trapped in an environment which the developer hopes will cure them of their ways.the original article from TECHLI, written by Corey Cummings
