The Division beta kicked off over the weekend and in that time, the development team managed to gain some pretty good feedback. However, quite a few cheats in the PC version were also uncovered during the weekend-long test and while it was frustrating for players to deal with at the time, Ubisoft has said that this will help the team handle the situation better going forward.
The Division is an online-only game with a PvP mode called ‘The Dark Zone', so having a decent anti-cheat system set up will be imperative for the game. In a post on the closed beta forum, Ubisoft said: “We are aware of the cheating issues in the Closed Beta on PC. The team is fully committed to providing solutions against this and a system will be in place to ensure a fair experience for players when the game is released on March 8.”
We may see some of these improvements pop up in the rumoured open beta, which would take place in a few weeks time ahead of the game's official launch on the 8th of March.
KitGuru Says: Ubisoft needs to ensure that a decent anti-cheat system is in place for The Division, especially in a PvP mode like The Dark Zone. Cheaters could very easily cost honest players some decent loot. I actually got to spend some time in The Division beta over the weekend and ended up really enjoying it, though I didn't run in to any cheaters. Did any of you have issues with cheaters during The Division beta? Did you give the game a try?
