Survarium Developers Talk About Stopping Cheaters Even Though Their Game Isn’t Out YetS

The next game from the folks who once made the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. titles won't be out for a while, but they already know that people will be trying to exploit it. They've got plans to stop those ne'er-do-wells.

In the video above, you'll get a look at how Survarium is coming along, with info on the first character type in the game that they're now building and a look at the engine that will be powering the experience. Given that Vostok is making a shooter with competitive aspects, they know some players will be trying to illicitly create advantages for themselves. A pretty detailed explanation of how the developers plan to foil cheaters starts in at 07:40 in the video above.

Man, who says nothing pretty comes from horrific disasters? As great as these screens from upcoming F2P FPS Survarium look, there's a built-in sadness at seeing the hollowed-out husk of a school—a place where kids played and learned—and knowing that it's going to be a place where people will be shooting each other. At least there won't be any cheating.
