Electronic Arts and DICE have announced that Battlefield 5 will receive support for EA Anticheat on April 3rd. This new anti-cheat system is designed to combat cheaters and maintain fair gameplay within the popular shooter game.


According to EA, the introduction of EA Anticheat to Battlefield 5 is essential to deter cheaters from exploiting the game. With cheat programs becoming increasingly sophisticated, it is crucial for competitive games like Battlefield 2042 and Battlefield V to implement effective anti-cheat measures.

The new anti-cheat system will only be active when a game protected by EA Anticheat is running. It automatically shuts down once the game is closed, and will be uninstalled along with the game itself, ensuring security and privacy.

Despite being released in 2018, the ongoing support for Battlefield 5 demonstrates EA and DICE's commitment to providing a fair gaming environment. Cheating can significantly impact the gaming experience, as seen in other popular titles like Tekken 8, and the implementation of EA Anticheat aims to address this issue.

Players can expect the support for EA Anticheat to be added at 08:00 UTC on April 3rd. To benefit from the changes, players will need to restart their game after the Client Update.
