Titanfall anti-cheat measures on the way, say Respawn

Respawn developers have taken to Twitter to play down worries about aimbotters and hackers in the PC version of the game.

As Titanfall is a Source engine-based game, these sorts of lowlifes have appeared perhaps faster than usual for a new title, but Respawn say they are on the case.

“We have anti-cheat but it is not enabled yet – it will be soon,” said Respawn’s Jon Shiring. “This is important to us.”

Shiring also explained that they were working on a VAC-style ban system, adding: “We ARE catching them. We are not yet ENFORCING it.”

Good that they have acknowledged, but shouldn’t it have been there from the start.. I mean it’s a multiplayer only title. A bit weak if you ask me.

Luckily I haven’t seen any shenanigans yet… yet. lol

Haven’t played the PC port, but my Xbox copy turned up in the mail yesterday. Played for 30 mins and quit out, just rubbish.

In a game crawling with AI, I don’t understand why they can’t give us skirmish mode against that very same AI. Normal people don’t have the time or inclination to get really good at video games. Adults who contribute to society play video games for fun and relaxation, not to compete. The only interaction I ever want to have with a skilled BF4 or CoD player is when they take my cheeseburger order.

Gonna play a few more rounds tonight before hopefully trading it for a Trials Fusion pre-order tomorrow.

 

peterlutzten95,

Amazing. I think that was the most patronising generalisation on the internet. Well done!

 

Thankfully I haven’t seen any cheating shenanigans during my time with the PC version.

I wonder what anticheat system they’ll use.
