Rockstar Games has a message for all you would be cheaters roaming the dusty expanses of Red Dead Redemption: enjoy it will it lasts, because a reckoning approaches.
Rockstar revealed a few weeks back that it would be addressing various Free Roam cheating issues in the upcoming Free Roam downloadable content pack via new “anti-grief measures,” but it appears those fixes will be coming along sooner than expected; as in, next month in a new title update.
Rockstar says the new update will address various hacking and cheating issues, and promptly ban anyone found to be engaging in the douche-arts. To help curb the annoyance of cheaters, a new respawn feature will be added to Free Roam that will let players avoid respawning next to some moron who can’t help but want to kill everything they see.
Not only that, especially annoying players who rack up a six person kill streak in Free Roam will now become most wanted, making them easy targets for other players in the session, as well as NPC lawmen.
These changes are just the first wave as Rockstar says it plans to continue improving multiplayer via future updates.
