Ubisoft to permanently ban cheaters in The Division

The Division

Ubisoft has cracked down on cheaters in the PC version of Tom Clancy’s The Division, and will implement new anti-cheat systems in the upcoming update, PCGamer reports.

The game is set to receive a massive update on 12 April 2016, which will include the addition of Incursions and long-awaited changes such as the ability to trade items.

The Division’s April update will also allow players to report each other for cheating via a “/report [user]” command.

The report function flags players for inspection, and action will only be taken against reported players if they are found to be cheating.

Ubisoft’s punishment for cheaters is harsh enough to ease the frustration of PC players who have run into them regularly.

After an initial offense is confirmed, cheaters will be suspended for three days without warning – and if they are found to be cheating when they return, they will be permanently banned from The Division.

As is often the case with multi-platform releases, cheaters are only a major problem on the PC version of Tom Clancy’s The Division.
