Outriders Devs Come Up With Strict Punishment For Cheaters

Cheaters are in for a surprise after developers, People Can Fly, announced their plans for Outriders.

Around two million people took part in Outriders demo recently, and the developers were able to identify 200 cheaters in the crowd.

Despite it being a small number of players when looking at the overall player base, there is no intention to give the cheaters a pass, with a permanent on-screen "brand" being dished out - even for a single infringement.

The developers, according to Gamespot, said that their brand would be "discreet but visible" with the watermark being overlaid on the cheater's screen.

This will assist in preventing streamers or YouTubers from bending the rules to get game content that would drive clicks - such as the player that "gave themself 600 Legendary Weapons" during the demo period.

Along with having a permanent brand, cheaters will not be able to play the game with law-abiding players. Instead, they will opt to take the same route that the developers of Fall Guys took, but allowing cheaters to play amongst themselves.

There is also a clear definition of what will be deemed as cheating, with the guidelines below:

  • Intentionally running the game on PC without Easy Anti-Cheat (EAC)
  • Modifying game files to enhance a character: levels, skills, inventory, etc.
  • Externally modifying game time to reduce time-dependent features such as vendors and challenges
  • Using a trainer program or similar to gain advantages within the game
  • Using gameplay altering programs such as aimbots or wallhacks

Outriders will launch officially on 1 April, and will be available on PC, as well as PlayStation and Xbox consoles.
