Guerrilla to monitor Killzone 3 for cheaters, hacks

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.
