Counter Strike Global Offensive (CS – GO) is hugely popular and has been around since a long time. It is arguably one of the most iconic FPS titles of its generation. This tactical first-person shooter has always been talked about because of its intense and hardcore gameplay. It has survived for so many years and is still going strong. Today, a new update has gone live for the game to fix some issues related to cheating. Let us take a look at the new update notes and find out what are the new changes in store.
Many cheaters have infiltrated CS:GO, since the game’s transition to free-to-play. This is a major issue that needs a permanent fix. The developers have been trying their best to find a solution for this problem. Valve has taken a promising step to continue their fight against cheating by introducing the Trusted Mode. Players can launch the game in Trusted Mode by default, which will prevent third party software from interacting with the game.
The system will be notified if any player launches the game using third party software. And the player will have an option to launch the game in untrusted mode, preventing the player from joining VAC secured servers and also reducing their Trust Score. In addition to that, third party developers need to have a digital signature for all of their DLLs that interact with the game. In case a player wants to use third party software that is not digitally signed, they will have to launch the game with the –insecure launch option.
If a player is detected using third party files mid-game, the system will prevent them from continuing the game until the files are closed.
Trusted Mode looks promising but many players have reported frame-drop issues. And cheaters have already figured out a way to surpass these third party blocking measures. This mode has also reported false positives which prevented streamers from broadcasting the game online. There are no major changes in the July update except the release of Trusted Mode.
