Epic has extended Easy Anti-Cheat support to Linux, Mac, and the Steam Deck

The company has also included support for Wine and Proton compatibility layers on Linux.

Epic Games is introducing Easy Anti-Cheat support for Linux, Mac, and the Steam Deck through its Epic Online Services toolkit.

The Fortnite maker had already made Easy Anti-Cheat available to Windows developers for free, and is now extending the same courtesy to creators on Linux and Mac.

Notably, the technology will also be supported on Valve's upcoming Steam Deck console, which is being pitched as a jack-of-all-trades machine capable of running a plethora of Steam titles in portable or docked mode.

"Today, we extend [Easy Anti-Cheat] support to Linux and Mac for developers who maintain full native builds of their games for these platforms," said Epic in a blog post.

"To make it easy for developers to ship their games across PC platforms, support for the Wine and Proton compatibility layers on Linux is included. Starting with the latest SDK release, developers can activate anti-cheat support for Linux via Wine or Proton with just a few clicks in the Epic Online Services Developer Portal."

Those interested in checking out the latest SDK should visit the Epic Online Services Developer Portal.
