Although there’s still a lot of confusion surrounding Windows 11’s requirement for TPM 2.0, Riot Games is already making sure gamers on Microsoft’s latest OS will have the feature enabled. If you’re playing Valorant on a Windows 11 system, Riot Games only allows you to run the game if you have TPM 2.0 enabled, even if you bypassed that requirement when installing the OS.
According to Anti-Cheat Police Department, Valorant players running the game on a Windows 11 system will have to enable TPM 2.0 and Secure Boot to “ensure a trusted platform”. Those running the game on Windows 10 have nothing to worry about for now, but in the future, Valorant might also demand Windows 10 users to run the game with TPM 2.0 enabled to fight against cheaters.
This will make it much harder to cheat, and not only that HWID bans will finally not be bypassed due to how TPM works, but this strategy should be adopted. To every game
This is indeed is the fattest W to ensure your games are safe!

Even if you installed Windows 11 by bypassing the TPM 2.0 requirement and want to play Valorant, Riot Games still requires that you have TPM 2.0 and Secure Boot enabled. Otherwise, you won’t be able to play Valorant.
If you’re caught cheating and get banned with TPM 2.0 enabled, your device ID is blocked, preventing you from playing the game on the same PC, even if using a different account. However, Windows 10 gamers without TPM 2.0 enabled can still spoof the device ID after getting banned.

KitGuru says: Do you think we will see other games or applications enforcing TPM 2.0 and Secure Boot? Would you update to Windows 11 knowing that other games and applications might also enforce these requirements in the future?
