Microsoft has launched its own anti-cheat utility to developers looking to add an extra level of cheat-stopping protection to their PC games.
According to VG247, the tool, called TruePlay, went live as a quiet addition to the company’s recent Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.
TruePlay plugs into a developer's Universal Windows Platform game and protects it against a number of common attacks while also monitoring gameplay sessions for behaviors and manipulations common to cheating.
The feature collects gameplay data and triggers an alert when something looks to be amiss. If that alert is indeed found to be caused by in-game cheating, TruePlay notifies developers and shares the data collected from that gameplay session.
It also gives devs the ability to determine which parts of the game they want anti-cheat active for, something that is thoroughly detailed within Microsoft's developer documentation.
