‘Call of Duty: Warzone’ getting new anti-cheat measures

It’s a different kind of war that’s been happening in ‘Call of Duty: Warzone’ in recent times, with the developer and publisher trying to stamp out the cheating that’s rife in the more recent ‘Call of Duty’ titles. And it seems Activision has come up with something, because the publisher sent out a message to all cheaters with a fairly ominous message.

‘Alan Wake Remastered’ has been classified for Switch again

‘Far Cry 6’ may be teasing a battle royale or survival game

‘Monster Hunter Rise’ on PC won’t have cross-save or cross-play with Switch

Sadly, the PC version of ‘Monster Hunter Rise’ isn’t going to be following suit with these options.

‘Pokemon Legends: Arceus’ won’t be an open-world game
