StarForce Provides Anti-cheat and Anti-bot protection for Red Bull Air Race – the Game


StarForce Technologies, a leading developer of software solutions to protect games from a wide range of threats, and Wingracers Sports Games, developer and publisher of the fastest racing series worldwide: RED BULL AIR RACE – THE GAME who teamed up with Slightly Mad Studios, developer of a series of memorable and successful racing franchises including Project CARS and Need For Speed, announce that Red Bull Air Race – the Game uses StarForce MMOG Solution to prevent fraudulent actions of gamers who use special programs – cheats and bots – to gain an advantage in the game process.

One of the main threats to massive multiplayer online games is violation of the game balance, when some gamers resort to various tricks to achieve quick results. StarForce MMOG Solution prevents the use of cheats and bots, and other fraudulent activity in order to allow gamers to enjoy fair competition and a well-deserved victory. Such protection is especially important for a variety of racing games, where competition is a central component of the gameplay.

Red Bull Air Race – the Game perfectly translates the dynamics and excitement of the internationally held Red Bull Air Race competitions into an exciting game. It is a flight simulator with an opportunity to compete with other gamers in real time. What makes this game stand out is its authenticity, thanks to input of Red Bull Air Race pilots and careful study of the physics of flight. With an Oculus Rift headset, the rapid flights on the courses of Chiba, Ascot or Spielberg are an intense experience – and provide a previously unknown degree of realism in the games segment. Red Bull Air Race - the Game is now already available in beta and the official release of the game will be end of November 2016.  

“Our relationship with Slightly Mad Studio has a history. They used StarForce MMOG in one of previous projects – World of Speed”, says Natalia Yashenkova, Head of Marketing and PR at StarForce Technologies. “And we are glad that they have selected us again. Red Bull Air Race is a beautiful and exciting game and gamers all over the world will enjoy it”.

Currently the StarForce MMOG Solution is used in such multiplayer online games as Warface, World of Speed, Skyforge, Armored Warfare, Allods, Prime World, Argo, etc. Besides anti-cheat and anti-bot protection it ensures that the gaming servers cannot be run on unauthorized platforms. It protects game code against reverse engineering, cracking and modification and secures the traffic between a client and a server.
