The Call of Duty WW2 PC version that will be releasing on November 3 will becoming with a bonus of anti-cheating and anti-hacking software, in order to prevent some of the less scrupulous players on PC from being able to hack the game and lag-switch in order to win multiplayer games.
Hacking and cheating are fairly common when it comes to PC gaming, as players that use it are apparently too lazy or unconfident in their abilities to try and actually get better on their own merit. With the package of anti cheating and hacking software that the Call of Duty WW2 PC version will be coming, hopefully this will smack down those kinds of players.
While it’s likely too much for Activision to actually put in the sort of anti-cheating software as Blizzard and Overwatch, which has a stellar record for banning cheaters so completely that simply buying another copy of Overwatch wouldn’t do; they’d have to buy a whole new computer since the ban goes all the way to their IP address.
Multiplayer has been a big part of the Call of Duty franchise ever since Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare brought the game into the multiplayer scene as a close competitor to Battlefield, and Call of Duty WW2 is no different; players will have a more detailed multiplayer experience than ever before, such as a social space called the Headquarters, a new game mode called War, and a new system of classes called Divisions.
Only time will tell if the Call of Duty WW2 PC version’s little software suite will be able to actually keep people from cheating and hacking, but hopefully it’ll at least be able to cut down on the number of cheating and hacking incidents that will result.
Call of Duty WW2 will be coming out on November 3 on the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC.
