Riot Games’ Vanguard enforcing both TPM and Secure Boot to play Valorant on Windows 11

Microsoft has announced that it will launch Windows 11 on October 5 as a free upgrade PC and for which your PC should have a 64-bit 1GHz processor with two or more cores, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and a TPM 2.0 chip. Well as it turns out some game companies such as Riot have recently started to enforce both Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 chip and Secure boot requirements in order to play Valorant on Windows 11. However, you can still run the game on Windows 10 even if you don’t have a TPM 2.0 chip at least until October 2025.

According to the developers, it will ensure a trusted platform when playing Valorant. As we know, to improve the gameplay experience of their players, Riot Games have taken some strict majors in the past. Vanguard, Riot’s anti-cheat system, protects the game from hackers and restricts players to use any kind of third-party software.

And since the time Windows 11 has been launched, Riot has enhanced its security level as well, reports XDA-Developers.

Riot believes that enforcing TPM 2.0 will help protect the game from hackers and to make Valorant on Windows 11 free from cheaters. It also makes sure that Valorant developers are ready to upgrade themselves with a continuous changing process.

And remember if you somehow install Windows 11 on an unsupported PC then you’ll not get access to the latest Windows Update, and even security patches.

So with this, Riot once again trying to lead with their own strategies to maintain competitive integrity in the game. That’s all about it and stay tuned for more updates.
