Epic Online Services launches Anti-Cheat support for Linux, Mac, and Steam Deck

September 23, 2021
Epic Online Services exists to connect developers and players across all platforms, including the upcoming Steam Deck, and we’re excited to take another step in that direction. 

Earlier this year, Easy Anti-Cheat for Windows games was made available to all developers, for free. Today, we extend support to Linux and Mac for developers who maintain full native builds of their games for these platforms.

To make it easy for developers to ship their games across PC platforms, support for the Wine and Proton compatibility layers on Linux is included. Starting with the latest SDK release, developers can activate anti-cheat support for Linux via Wine or Proton with just a few clicks in the Epic Online Services Developer Portal.

Easy Anti-Cheat is available for free through Epic Online Services on all PC platforms, helping all developers to uphold a fair and safe gaming experience for players on the operating system of their choice.

To get the latest SDK and read the full SDK changelog, visit the Epic Online Services Developer Portal.
