You are not supposed to mod Planetside 2, Sony Online Entertainment has revealed.
They said that their no mod policy will provide a fair playing field to all gamers without ruining their experience. They have revealed that modding the client is similar to other hacks and banhammer will swing if you do this.
The policy was posted on Planetside 2 official forum.
“It is vital that you not run software which modifies the Planetside 2 client in any way. If you do this, you are indistinguishable from various hacks that work in the same manner. The result of this is that you will be banned from gameplay and lose your characters/items,” the post read.
“We cannot make exceptions to this. We do understand there are relatively harmless apps that fall in this category, but if we allowed those they would simply be used as a shield excuse by players trying to cheat.
“This same rule applies to data that Planetside 2 uses for gameplay. Do not modify any of these files or attempt to modify them in memory.”
Planetside 2 is a free-to-play game that is exclusively available on the PC. It’s awesome too and one of the best games SOE have ever made.
