Call of Duty: WWII’s PC beta concluded on Monday after a long weekend that many players felt was rife with hacking and cheating. Publisher Activision and developers Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software apparently took notice and have announced a range of efforts to curb the problems when the game launches on November 3.
“Sadly, there are always those who aim to spoil the fun, even in a beta,” reads an Activision post on the matter. “We have yet to deploy the suite of anti-cheat/hacking technology we will use when the full PC game is live. We take a level playing field extremely serious and will monitor and react to this as a top priority on an ongoing basis.”
Activision explained that the following protections will be in place when Call of Duty: WWII launches next month:
- Scrollbars on options that scroll.
- Allow numerical entry to mouse and controller sensitivity options (in addition to slider).
- Streamline the exit of the game.
- Clearly indicate being in Party status in UI.
- Making the resolution options more clear and consistent.
- Video option video memory indicator.
- Warnings about video memory over-commitment.
- Option to bind lean left/right keys in multiplayer.
Additionally, Activision is monitoring “a number of smaller issues” that Sledgehammer and Raven plan to patch in fixes for post-launch.
