EA offers an anti-cheat solution for PC games


In an effort to protect EA games from tampering and cheating, game developer and maker Electronic Arts (EA) has officially announced that it will be releasing EA AntiCheat (EAAC) for PC games this fall.

The company named it EAAC, it is a kernel-mode anti-cheat and anti-tamper solution developed in-house at Electronic Arts.

“At Electronic Arts, we are committed to creating a safe and fair experience for all of our players,” said Elise Murphy, Senior Director, Game Security and Anti-Cheat, in a blog post.

“PC cheat developers have increasingly moved to the kernel, so we need to have kernel mode protections in place to ensure fair play and tackle PC cheat developers on an equal footing,” said Murphy added.

Depending on the platform, third-party anti-cheat solutions are often opaque to its teams and prevent them from implementing additional privacy controls or customizations that provide greater accuracy and granularity for EA-specific game modes.

“With EAAC, we have full ownership of security and privacy, so we can address security issues as they arise. With that in mind, let’s address some common questions you might have,” said Murphy.

Core level anti-cheat needed for highly competitive games with many online modes like FIFA 23.

When cheat programs operate in kernel space, they can make their cheat functionally invisible to anti-cheat solutions that live in user mode, the platform said.
