Caldera is here to replace Verdansk and there's a lot to look forward to from Warzone's new Pacific update - however, one of the most important improvements coming from Raven Software is the Anti-Cheat system. The Ricochet Anti-Cheat system "already live across Call of Duty: Vanguard and Call of Duty: Warzone with server-side updates", but is it on Xbox and PlayStation or just PC?
Everything we know about the new Anti-Cheat
As far as we're aware, the Ricochet Anti-Cheat system is going to be available on both Xbox and PlayStation - as well as on PC. The recent server-side updates regarding the new Anti-Cheat system should mean that they're in place for every Warzone game, regardless of platform.
In addition to this, it should also combat those accessing game cheats as they're largely PC based - even when they're going to be trying to use them on consoles.
If you encounter a cheater in Warzone over the next few days, though, there's a reason for this. Warzone's Ricochet Anti-Cheat system is only being rolled out for Asia-Pacific region servers right now. Raven Software has said the following...
" With the launch of Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific tomorrow, #TeamRICOCHET continues its new anti-cheat security initiative with the rollout of an internally developed PC kernel-level driver for Warzone, which will activate first in the Asia-Pacific region before expanding worldwide."
In the Anti-Cheat Progress Report, Call of Duty has continued with the following Q&A...
Q- Where does the rollout plan begin?
Initial rollout will begin first within the Asia-Pacific region before expanding worldwide.
Q- I am not located in the Asia-Pacific region. When does the rollout expand to my region?
#Team Ricochet will provide updates, including when the PC kernel-level driver rollout expands, across our franchise and studio social channels.
Q- When Warzone Pacific launches, what will I see?
When you boot up Warzone Pacific, you’ll see the RICOCHET Anti-Cheat logo as part of the game’s loading screen. The kernel-driver installation process is automatic. Once available, when Warzone Pacific launches, the driver will launch with the game. When you exit the game, the driver will shut down.
Q- What can I expect from RICOCHET Anti-Cheat?
RICOCHET Anti-Cheat is an evolving initiative that will grow stronger as its systems learn more about cheating behavior. #TeamRICOCHET is committed to continuously monitoring and updating our security measures to fight unfair play. Every update we make forces cheaters to change their tactics, which provides us with more information to identify and expel them from the community.
At the moment, there isn't a timeline to explain when the Ricochet Anti-Cheat will be available worldwide.
