THE BUZZ: Robert Bowling, Creative Strategist at Infinity Ward, has said the team is looking to fix any online errors it made in Modern Warfare 2, in Modern Warfare 3.
He revealed that the game will be using Valve’s VAC Security System with a few tweaks made by Infinity Ward to increase security. “We wanted to unify the experience across every platform but it was always intended to be the first step in a series in what IWNet would become,” he told GameSpy. “So we looked at how that performed and regretfully there were a lot of things that it didn’t achieve that we wanted it to achieve. Things like making it as secure as it can be – Modern Warfare 2 had a lot of problems with cheating and hacking, especially on the PC, that VAC didn’t fully take care of. ”
“As a result we’ve done a lot of work on Modern Warfare 3 on the back -end. We are still using VAC in Steam but in addition to that we’ve done much more work on the back-end, locking down our stuff to make it more secure, to make sure we have more flexibility on addressing things like that ourselves rather than just relying on some third party anti-cheat program,” he added.
EGM’s TAKE: Fans will be pleased to hear that improvements have been made to the servers and the systems.
