Battlefield 3


 

THE BUZZ: It seems that an ever-increasing amount of cheating has been going on in the Battlefield 3 Beta in recent days, and last night, DICE made a commend to concerned fans about the situation.

Hey Everyone,

We’ve been hearing your concerns about people cheating in the beta..

While the final retail version of Battlefield 3 will feature a number of anti-cheating measures, these features are not in place for the Beta.

To counteract cheating in the meantime we are creating this official thread where you can come an report users you suspect of foul play.

Please DO NOT post anything aside from usernames.

Please DO include a link to their profile.

The hammer will fall swiftly and accurately.

 

EGM’s TAKE: Good to see DICE addressing this. I’m not all that surprised to see this kind of thing happening in a beta test, but at the same time, it could end up scaring off some players who will now be worried about how bad the final game may be.

What has been your experience so far if you’re in the Battlefield 3 Beta? Have you encountered (or heard about) large amounts of cheating?
