Will this solve all the rampant cheating in game?

Published

Picture this: you just finished up a good amount of work for the day and you just wanna play video games. Specifically, you boot up your PC or console and play some good ol’ fashioned Call of Duty: Warzone. All of a sudden, even playing this game isn’t enjoyable because of all the cheaters in your server. It’s not fun, but the developers of Call of Duty have a solution for that with their new anti-cheat system, Ricochet.

Basically, Ricochet will serve as the game’s way of tracking and investigating any and all kinds of cheating activity taking place on the server. Apart from this, the anti-cheat system allows for tighter account security especially when playing on your PC. With a dedicated PC kernel driver, the system will assist users in identifying cheaters and cheating software present in their systems.

In terms of rollout, Ricochet will be available on Call of Duty: Warzone later in the year. Meanwhile, the anti-cheat will make its way to Call of Duty: Vanguard at a much later date.

Apple reportedly working on a Nintendo Switch competitor

Only rumored at this point

Published

on

The Nintendo Switch is still the undisputed ruler of on-the-go gaming. With a dedicated TV dock, gamers can also plug in their Switches when they get home. Even amid the strong launch of the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X/S, the Switch is still the most versatile. However, a massive surprise entrant — Apple — is reportedly making its own competitor for the Nintendo Switch.

According to a rumor from iDrop News, Apple is working on both the console and games exclusive to the potential console. Much like the Switch, the console will work in both portable and docked modes. It can also work with Apple’s virtual reality technology. The same report also includes a rumor for a future Apple TV redesign. Having a console attached to the project would make sense.

Additionally, Apple is reportedly working with game studios to develop a “Zelda-like game.” When the Switch launched, Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was one of the strongest launch titles that sustained the new console for months. A similar game might be the way to go for such a console. However, the report does not indicate who is developing the game or what it will be about.

That said, the potential console is still heavily rumored at this point. Plans for such a console might ultimately fall through. Still, it’s nice to speculate when the Switch finally gets another competitor in the hybrid console arena.
