A new anti-cheat with a barrage of announcements from Activision relating to Call of Duty: Vanguard and Call of Duty: Warzone has just been released.
Promising an all-new Warzone map in addition to the new PC Anti-Cheat system (which will benefit all Warzone players due to cross-play), this future update will breathe a sigh of relief into fans, many of whom have taken a break from playing due to the state of the current online multiplayer.
The hacking problem had become so bad in Warzone, that even popular streamers have been caught ruining the fun for everyone. Thankfully many of them have been banned, but it seems when Activision strikes one hacker down, two more pop up in their place.
Here’s hoping the new anti-cheat will solve the problem. It is likely this is the reason that Activision has discontinued support for Windows 7, in preparation for these new systems. So if you haven’t upgraded, remember to do so before the patch rolls out.
In addition to this news, it was also announced that Zombies will be returning in Call of Duty: Vanguard, with Treyarch taking the lead and continuing the story they began in Black Ops: Cold War.
Finally, some additional information regarding the multiplayer portion of Vanguard was also released.
20 multiplayer maps is the most we have ever seen at the launch any Call of Duty title. With 16 core multiplayer maps tie-ing it with Modern Warfare 3 and the original Modern Warfare. Little is currently known about the four additional maps for the new Champion Hill mode, but it is expected these maps will be large scale, big team battle maps.
Call of Duty: Vanguard is now available for pre-order.
