Borderlands 2 patch addressing hacking on Xbox 360 to be released “as soon as possible”

Borderlands 2 will receive a patch “as soon as possible” in order to combat hacking in the Xbox 360 version of the game.

According to a post on the Gearbox forums, the developer was notified of an external application which “maliciously disrupts the experience and sabotages characters of legitimate Borderlands 2 players.”

“After extensive internal testing, an update to prevent this disruption has been submitted to Microsoft and will be released as soon as possible. Until then, concerned Xbox 360 players of Borderlands 2 should consider playing online with trusted individuals in non-public sessions. This does not affect players on PC or PlayStation 3,” said the firm’s community manager.

Gearbox also suggest before quitting out of the game to always select “Save and Quit” from within the pause menu while the character is alive.

“If after the death of their character players find themselves at the main menu of Borderlands 2 instead of respawning in-game, be sure to immediately select “Continue” to resume playing as that character,” said the post.

Thanks, Polygon.

    That sucks…..hey Steph passed this info onto Richard Leadbetter. I think he might’ve missed it since it’s about the 360.

    Oh lawd. At first I thought, “why bother in a co-op game?” but that is much worse than people just cheating.
