The BattlEye anti-cheat system will natively support Steam Deck from the launch of the console.
With a post on Twitter, the BattlEye team confirmed that the anti-cheat system will natively support Steam Deck already at the launch of the Valve console.
BattlEye is an anti-cheat system that protects multiplayer titles and their players from hacking, cheating and other forms of attacks . Among the games that take advantage of the service we find Rainbow Six Siege, PUBG: Battlegrounds, Fortnite and Escape from Tarkov, just to name a few.
“BattlEye has provided native Linux and Mac support for a long time and we can announce that we will also support the upcoming Steam Deck (Proton). This will be done on an opt-in basis with game developers choosing whether they want to allow it or not.” – says the BattlEye team.
Just yesterday Epic Games announced that Easy Anti-Cheat will also fully support the Steam Deck operating system . In both cases, these are important news for the Valve console, given that in the past months several online titles had shown compatibility problems with Proton.
In the meantime, Valve has confirmed that it has started sending Steam Deck dev kits to developers and partners , who can then use them to optimize their productions ahead of the launch of the portable console, scheduled for the month of December.
