In case you’re a gamer, there are chances that you might be running Windows on your machine. In the recent years, Linux distros for gaming have made their presence felt, but they still have a lot of ground to cover.

For game developers who wish to stop the cheaters from showing off their tricks during the gameplay, Microsoft has added a new system-level API with Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

Named TruePlay, this new feature will help the developers take better control of games and tag it as a protected process. This will let the game detect and stop outside attacks, including programs that alter game’s memory.

In case the background mechanism finds any mischief, the payer will be alerted. The related data can also be sent to the game developer–this data sharing only takes place in case a cheating effort is detected. In case, you’re too skeptical about your data, you have an option to disable the feature as well.

This feature was first teased in the Windows 10 Preview builds released in June. Back then, it was called Game Monitor.

As a result of this feature, in the upcoming months, we can expect games to ship with TruePlay support enabled. It’s also worth noting that Windows 10 TruePlay is only available for Windows Universal Platform games.

Did you find TruePlay feature exciting enough? Don’t forget to share your views with us.
