Boss Key’s new battle royale title Radical Heights is slowly but surely bringing out the cheaters.
Despite some ridiculous articles from some publications slating the game the day after release when it was clearly stated it was a very early version, Radical Heights appears to be doing OK with player numbers reaching a peak of 12,757 today. Amusingly one Steam user got caught out after offering a free Steam game to everyone if the game reached more than 10K concurrent users. While the numbers are nowhere near other popular battle royale games it’s an OK start. Unfortunately, this increase in numbers has also attracted the cheaters.
Boss Key has now started to ban players who have been caught cheating after reports from players on their official forums, Twitter and Steam. Right now there is no actual report button which makes things a little tricky for players.
According to Boss Key technical director Romain Dura a reporting feature is coming and that the first bans were happening saying, “Tango down. First Radical Heights cheater permabans have started. We’re working on a reporting function as we speak”.
The sooner Boss Key can get a system in place the better to keep players engaged with the game, even if it is still very early on in development. For our thoughts on the game so far, check out first impressions.
