Max Payne 3 has seen a successful launch on the PC, the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 and a number of players are keeping busy with the multiplayer modes, which has naturally generated a problem with those who are willing to cheat in order to improve their game performance.
is ready to move against them in force and has created a special e-mail address, suggestively named email@example.com, and invites anyone who witnesses incidents of cheating to use it.
Those who report should add the GamerTag or the ID of the cheater, a description of the incident and, as long as that’s possible, a screenshot or a video to serve as direct evidence.
Based on the offered information, Rockstar plans to take cheaters away from the core multiplayer community for Max Payne 3 and basically eliminate their presence from the official leaderboards to discourage them from acting out again.
The official statement from the development team at Rockstar reads: “We’re aware that a small minority of players are spoiling the Max Payne 3 multiplayer experience for honest players with cheats and hacks, and while certain issues will be dealt with in forthcoming title updates, today we’d like to make it clear that anyone using these nefarious methods will be dealt with.”
Rockstar is mostly interested in cheats that offer infinite adrenaline for slow motion, score cheating and invincibility and makes it clear that gamers need to report general harassment incidents to Sony or Microsoft.
Rockstar has not mentioned when it plans to deliver the title updates that would make cheaters unable to play with the general public.
Max Payne 3
was launched on the PS3 and the Xbox 360 on May 15 and quickly impressed with its mix of old-school gameplay and interesting characters development, with the PC version of the game arriving two weeks later.
