THE BUZZ: The Battlefield 3 beta has come under attack over the last few days, with hackers beginning to gain more and more ground with server attacks, aimbots and even a wall hack. DICE has now begun to address some fan’s issues.
In the latest Battlelog FAQ DICE revealed that patches won’t remove the various hacks that are floating around:
“Patch please, too many aimbotters today!”
“A patch wouldn’t remove aimbots or hacks. Punkbuster is disabled during the Open BETA but we are monitoring what hacks are being used.“
Also in response the hacked servers, the following response was given:
“First – don’t join the custom servers. We’re working to see what can be done.”
Also when Ian Tornay, Community Manager for Battlefield 3, was asked if the Caspian Border Map would ever be made public in the beta he replied, “We can either put work into that or into the final product – which would you prefer?”
EGM’s TAKE: It appears that DICE is simply using the beta to collect as much data as possible in order to remove all of these hacks from the final game, and has no intention of fixing the beta. There’s nothing wrong with this if it makes the final product better.
