Players of the game ARK: Survival Evolved can earn $200 from Studio Wildcard by reporting the use of online hacks.
In a post made on their Steam Community page, Studio Wildcard states, “We are now offering $200 bounties for anyone who can provide us with hacks of any kind (which are NOT aimbots/esp/speedhacks) that can have an impact on gameplay or server stability on our official, online servers.”
Studio Wildcard goes on to say it doesn’t care about offline, single player cheats, and says, “We are only concerned about ONLINE, MULTIPLAYER issues that can de done on our OFFICIAL SERVERS”.
Cheating is a major issue in many online multiplayer games, and many developers have trouble combating it. Studio Wildcard’s rewarding of players that report cheaters is definitely an interesting way to tackle the problem, however, only time will tell if this is an effective way of reducing cheating.
