Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is coming to Steam November 13, 2012 with exciting new features including Strike Force missions and some new zombie modes. One undesirable element returning to Call of Duty multi-player will of course be hackers and cheaters. They are, unfortunately, simply a part of life in online gaming.
September 28, 2012, BlackOpsNews released details on how they intend to combat online cheaters in the latest Call of Duty game.
We have developed our own proprietary server-side anti-cheat technology which will work alongside VAC to deliver the most advanced detection and banning capabilities of any Call of Duty game to date. We have also improved our player reporting system to make it the most effective way that you can help us catch cheaters. Black Ops 2 will also get both matchmaking and dedicated servers and promise a huge number of servers available around the world at no extra charge.
It seems that in order to combat online cheaters Treyarch intends to keep a tight leash on Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, but will it be enough. No matter how the gaming industry tries, or at least say they try, talking to you EA, the problem just persists.
Call of Duty Black Ops 2 is available now for pre-order at the Steam store along with bonuses for pre-ordering. The game is once again expected to be a huge seller but hopefully, hackers will find something better to do like Blacklight: Retribution.
