Electronic Arts is working on a new anti-cheat system that’ll help deal with cheaters. The hope is to reduce the number of cheaters in games like Star Wars Battlefront, Apex Legends, and Battlefield. The anti-cheat system will access volatile memory to analyze if there is any malicious software running on your system. For the less tech-savvy, let us explain what a volatile memory is. It is basically your RAM EA is going to access to observe what’s running on your PC during gameplay.

The patent describes the Electronic Arts’ anti-cheat system as follows: An anti-cheat system may be accessed over a network and stored directly into volatile memory of a user computing system. In some embodiments, this anti-cheat system may scan, or access portions of, the volatile…

Avalanche Studios is known for its open-world games and most notably for its Just Cause Franchise. The studio has posted a job listing, hinting that Avalanche New York is working on Just Cause 5 with seamless multiplayer. According to the listing, Avalanche New York is looking for a “Build Engineer” to build and manage “a large and complex code base for diverse platforms as well as enormous amounts of data. The efficiency of the processes involved in doing so can be the differencing factor between a blockbuster success and a failure.” The job listing doesn’t reveal the game for which the studio is hiring for. But given that, Just Cause is the studio’s most popular franchise, what better way to welcome the next-generation of consoles than releasing Just Cause 5, that’ll probably melt those consoles with its physics systems. Our New York Studio is currently working on an undisclosed project…
