Fall Guys to use Fortnite's Anti Cheat System.
Since the game launched in August, it has been receiving great response but the only prevailing problem is a huge number of cheaters.
The developers apologized and thanked fans for their patience. "We're really sorry about the cheating problem. We're expanding the current detection system this week to improve things. We also have a big update in the next couple of weeks that adds the same anti-cheat used by games such as Fortnite." the studio tweeted.
Fortnite's Anti-Cheat system is developed by Easy Anti-Cheat. Easy Anti-Cheat is an industry-leading anti-cheat service, countering hacking and cheating in multiplayer PC games through the use of hybrid anti-cheat mechanisms. It is used in multiple games like Apex Legends, Paladins, Rust, For Honor, Paladins etc.
With the addition of Easy Anti-Cheat to Fall Guys, it is expected that the players will have a much better experience.
