UbiSoft has just kicked live anti-cheat detection for Rainbow Six Siege.
The game is utilising BattleEye to stop cheating players and it’s just been launched into the game in beta form. The BattleEye client will launch as soon as the game is launched by the player. Should BattleEye think that the player is cheating it will block the cheat or a ban will be issued. It’s pro-active detection system which has been constantly evolving since 2004 and has been used by many other games such as Battlefield 2 and ARMA.
It’s important to note that this is a beta test and now bans will be issued during this testing period.
To ensure that BattlEye runs smoothly with our game and prevents cheating, we will be performing tests on a large scale with all our PC players, and so for several weeks. We will keep you informed as we make sure that this anti-cheating client-side product is best adapted to our needs. We thank you in advance for your patience and feedback.
An FAQ has been posted on the official site to cover most common queries concerning the system.
