Playpark updates security for Special Force Online to strongly block cheaters from entering the game
Say goodbye to your happy days, cheaters.
Special Force Online may haver proved to stage a great comeback after being relaunched late last year under the helm of online game publisher Playpark, however, together with the game’s return also came the re-rise of third-party programs and cheats such as Aimbots and Wallhacks.
This month though, Playpark would look to have a stronger stance and provide a solid solution to help eradicate or at least minimize the use of known hacks and cheats with their new @GATE security system for the game, which helps detect illegal third party programs and bar not only accounts but also PC and gaming units, presumably based on their IP address, from logging into the game.
That being said, Playpark issues an advisory to everyone “to remove any and all the installed TPPs[third-party programs] so as not to have issues once this[@GATE] goes live“, and that will be happening later this month.
But will anyone get banned?
While Playpark’s initiative might help block or curb down the usage of illegal TPPs, there is no definite information if this program will also detect frequent TPP or cheat users and instantly punish them by blocking or banning them from the game completely. Still, this new move from Playpark would definitely help resolve the prevalent cheating that Special Force Online has been witnessing since its re-inception, although it does need close monitoring knowing how illegal TPP creators easily find turnaround solutions against anti-cheat software.
