Fortnite’s Anti-Cheat Software to Be Utilized by Fall Guys

Fortnite’s Anti-Cheat Software to Be Utilized by Fall Guys

Imagine having a bad day at work where nothing goes right. Your boss scolded you. That to-do list just won’t end. Ultimately, it is anxiety which overcomes you. All you want is to go home, play some video games, and shake off the day.

You start playing Fall Guys. The cartoon-like graphics, appealing jelly bean characters, and light yet stimulating gameplay is like a warm blanket for your otherwise cold days.

Now, even this physics-defying game of jellies has been taken over by cheaters and hackers. And you cannot even enjoy proper captivating gameplay. A buzzkill, right?

How are cheaters different from normal players?

In a game where everyone is supposed to struggle and stumble, these cheaters can be seen floating. Besides beans being very swift and nimble, they also become unsusceptible to tumbling when hit by numerous hurdles.

Fortunately, there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Mediatonic claimed that this matter is being looked into. The official Twitter account of Fall Guys also apologized for the same.

They further promised to stiffen the “current detection system” for emerging victorious in this merciless clash against cheaters.

As the tweet said, a big update is coming in a matter of a few weeks. This will see Fall Guys rely on the same anti-cheat software which Fortnite uses: Easy Anti-Cheat.

Easy Anti-Cheat is utilized by a plethora of games like Rust, Far Cry 5 and Watch Dogs 2.

From removing cheaters to adding the new Big Yeetus feature, its good to see Mediatonic striving to improve this battle royale.

However, one should not expect the game to completely eradicate cheaters even with a new detection system being housed.

No organization has been able to achieve this feat yet. On the contrary, at least something is better than nothing!

Given that there is no in-game reporting system, players are more than willing to embrace any arrangement that can wipe out even a handful of cheaters.

About Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout

Released on August 4, 2020, Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is a battle royale developed by Mediatonic for platforms like PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Windows.

It is one of those battle royales which without even a hint of explosives and fireworks offers a gameplay that is nothing short of dramatic and out of the ordinary moments.

Fall Guys deploys quick tempo gameplay where up to 60 players engage as adorable jelly-like characters. One can specially alter the design of jelly as per the inclinations too. 

To further emphasize this, the game is divided into distinct mini-games. Every mini-game varies from another.

If one requires users to eliminate others then the next mini-game demands players to join hands and put on a display of joint effort.

Every match of the game lasts for 15 minutes and overflows with running, bouncing, jumping, and snatching items. This is done to avoid obstacles and elimination from a particular round. The last standing gamer is declared as the winner. 

Being slow here means elimination, simple as that.

When the game was available for pre-order, it became the sixth top-selling game on Stream. 

It also caught the attention of 1.5 million players within the first day of its release. Fall Guys is very appreciated and cherished throughout the globe.
