Guerrilla to monitor Killzone 3 for cheaters, hacks

Wednesday, 23rd February 2011 17:13 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Killzone 3 producer Steven Ter Heide has said Guerrilla has a plan of action against those who use jailbreak to take advantage of its game.

Speaking with CVG, Ter Heide said the recent attacks on PS3 were “absolutely,” a concern to the studio, but it plans to “aggressively,” monitor the situation.

“The ability for one person to ruin people’s games is not a good prospect obviously, so we’re working with Sony on the moderation side,” he said. “We’re looking at people misbehaving, being able to follow reports against those so that’s all been taken care of – and we’re working with Sony to see, even more aggressively, what kind of things are happening.

“But at the same time we have to step up as developers and say, ‘OK what are the holes in our game, what is the data, can we analyze that and see where the problems might be?’ We can look at the leaderboards and the stats that most people are playing with and say, ‘This doesn’t look right. Can we look into that and see what’s happening?’

“That’s the reality now, we have to keep patching the game to make sure we keep getting one over the hackers.”

Killzone 3 was released in the US yesterday and will hit the UK Friday.

    Now the question is: CAN hackers hack this game? WILL it turn into the PC hack game where sooner or later the hacks will be undetectable and unstoppable.

    Look what you’ve done, Geohot.

    I was thinking about this last night as I played. These assholes who used hacks in COD4 have fucked the game up so much. Its just fortunate that its an older game and many of the fuckers think the other COD games after are worth their time. Since KZ3 isn’t so popular as COD I don’t think it will be much but there will always be cheaters so good luck Guerrilla zap them in the ass.

    If they catch someone cheating with hacked FW they’ll block the system from connecting to PSN.

    @4 Why don’t you just buy a netbook and install the freaking Linux?

    It’s cheaper and you don’t have to fuck around with “japanese fascist pigs”.

    Linux idiots, I regret every single session I had with that OS while studying at college.
