What you need to know

  • VRChat is a virtual reality game where players can create large social worlds and interact with others with user-created 3D avatars.
  • An upcoming update will add Easy Anti-Cheat software which will ban all mods.
  • The game’s community is not happy with the upcoming update and has review bombed the game’s Steam page.

Virtual reality social platform VRChat will be introducing an update very soon that will implement anti-cheat software into the game and consequentially ban user mods, which has caused anger within the community.

The game’s studio, VRChat Inc., announced earlier this week that the Oculus Quest 2  and SteamVR game would be receiving Easy Anti-Cheat (EAC) in an update going live “in the next few days.” The service, which has been used in many modern online multiplayer games like Apex Legends and Fortnite, would ban clients from running modified software.
