Windows 10 Fall Creators Update introduces two new anti-cheat tools

Microsoft has revealed that the upcoming Windows 10 Fall Creators update will introduce two new anti-cheat tools. These tools/technologies are: Game Monitor and TruePlay.

TruePlay is a new set of tools to combat cheating within Microsoft’s PC games, and will be similar to VAC. From the looks of it, this tool will now work exclusively with UWP games.

On the other hand, Game Monitor will let Windows 10 share system information with games to prevent cheating tools such as aimbots. Since this tool will share system information with Microsoft, we are certain that some PC users will be against it. Not only that, but this tool may affect single-player games.

For instance, let’s assume that a game is online-only and gamers use CheatEngine in order to – for example – enable a higher FOV. In this case, there is a high possibility that those gamers may get banned. This is a hypothetical scenario but there is no guarantee that this tool won’t get gamers into trouble.

On one hand, it’s good that Microsoft is introducing these new tools. On the other hand, the company will have to adjust and tweak them in order to prevent any possible mishaps.

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update releases tomorrow, and will also introduce improvements to Game Mode!
