Steam Deck, guaranteed support for a popular anti-cheat

Steam Deck

Over the last few days Valve has not only announced the first batch of shipments for the Steam Deck, but also wanted to unveil a small update on the anti-cheat system. As we already know, the new console produced by Gabe Newell's company will obviously allow you to play the supported titles in multiplayer and BattlEye support had already been unveiled but players will be able to count on another, important anti-cheating system.

As announced by Valve via its website, Steam Deck will also support Easy Anti-Cheat. This is important news, as the popular system is owned by Epic Games and this means that it will also be active on other multiplayer games currently owned by the publisher, such as Fortnite. “In recent months, our team has been working with Epic on support for Easy Anti-Cheat + Proton and we are delighted to announce that adding Steam Deck support for your existing games that use EAC is now a simple process that is not possible. requires the update of the game's binary codes, new versions of the SDK or the integration of new services ", reads the press release launched in the last few days visible at this address.

After the postponement, in fact, it is now really shortly before players can get their hands on the console and ensuring full compatibility with these systems is one of the team's last priorities, to avoid unpleasant situations in multiplayer games.

"We are thrilled to be able to make this announcement, as it means partners will be able to continue using the cheat prevention systems they already rely on, while adding support for more great games on the Steam Deck", Valve's release ends.

Steam Deck can now run Apex Legends, R6 Siege, Fortnite, etc.

Steam Deck can now implement the anti-cheat systems of games like Apex Legends, R6 Siege, and Fortnite.

One of the biggest concerns players had when the Valve Steam Deck was first announced was if it can truly run all of our favorite games. While the portable PC gaming device has the specs to back itself up, there are other things that can prevent games from running in a new system – namely, compatibility and software. Now, Valve is assuring gamers that the list of compatible games is growing, which now includes popular multiplayer games like Apex Legends, R6 Siege, and Fortnite. This is after Valve revealed how they have made it easy for developers to add Steam Deck support to existing Easy Anti-Cheat and BattlEye titles. In a developer post, Valve says:

“Our team has been working with Epic on Easy Anti-Cheat + Proton support over the last few months, and we’re happy to announce that adding Steam Deck support to your existing EAC games is now a simple process, and doesn’t require updating game binaries, SDK versions, or integration of EOS. Alongside our BattlEye updates from last year, this means that the two largest anti-cheat services are now easily supported on Proton and Steam Deck.”

Just some of the most popular games running on BattlEye include ARMA II & III, Day Z, H1Z1, Ark Survival Evolved, Rainbow Six Siege, Insurgency, Day of Infamy, Conan Exiles, PUBG: Battlegrounds, Fortnite, The Crew 2, Escape from Tarkov, Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Mount & Blade II Bannerlord, Destiny 2, and Riders Republic.

For Easy Anti-Cheat, the list includes Apex Legends, Dead by Daylight, Hunt Showdown, Gears 5, For Honor, Fortnite, Paladins, Rust, Squad, Ghost Recon Wildlands, The Division 2, and War Thunder.

While this assurance puts the actual implementation in the hands of developers, Valve also does its own testing of titles on the Steam Deck. To help players ascertain a game is compatible, Steam has the Deck Verified vetting system, where testers are tasked to play the games on the Steam Deck, putting games on different categories based on their playability on the hardware.
