We all know how Epic Games is committed towards its Fortnite players to provide them with everything good they need in the game. And this time Epic Games worked towards providing its Fortnite players with a cheat free gaming environment in-game by taking over an Anti-cheat firm called Kamu.
Kamu is a company based in Helsinki and provides game management, game security, and anti-cheat technology for over 100 million pcs all over the world. However they were already associated with Epic Games for a long time as stated by Tim Sweeney, CEO of Epic Games, this move is just to ensure fortnite is “fair for all players.”
“Building and launching games today is incredibly challenging, and only half the battle,” said Sweeney. “Kamu’s tools for managing live games help developers grow and sustain their games successfully after launch,” he continued.
As Fortnite battle Royale is free to play as soon as hacker find something to exploit the game they use it continuously. However, the anti-cheat system of fortnite detects everything wrong in the game and developers try to fix it as soon as possible. As Kamu is now going to solely work towards providing better anti-cheat for Fortnite these events are going to happen less often.
Previous year there was a kid who was sued by Epic Games for creating and selling the cheating software. Since that time Epic Games has been very serious about cheaters in the game. Because game is free cheaters can easily make a new account when one gets banned but with help from this anti cheat firm Fortnite has already started banning IPs of the cheaters so they won’t be able to crate another account to hack and cheat in game to ruin game for those players who just play it to enjoy.
There are very rare cases where cheaters use hacks on public streaming platforms but previous month there was a Youtuber named Brandon Lucas with channel name Golden Modz channel was sued by Epic Games for posting videos of playing hacked fortnite and many other games.
He also runs a website where he sells cheats, such as automatic aiming, for more than $200 (£150).
“Defendants are cheaters. Nobody likes a cheater,” Epic Games said in its legal filing.
“Defendant Lucas not only cheats, he also promotes, advertises, and sells software that enables those who use it to cheat,” the document states.
However the hack he developed got easily detected by the anti cheating system of Fortnite and thus it was banned already in the game and case is still going on to recover all the damages that were done to the game.
