Riot Games is enforcing TPM 2.0 on Windows 11. Riot titles like Valorant might not be playable on PCs bypassing the requirements. Other anti-cheat services might follow suit.
Windows 11 is due for arrival very soon and this version of the OS brings new system requirements. In order to get a taste of Windows 11, you'll need one of the newer CPUs, at least 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and TPM 2.0. There are ways to bypass these requirements and run Windows 11, but it goes without saying that it won't be a very stable experience.
Now, it looks like some game devs are enforcing the TPM 2.0 requirement too. According to a new report, Valorant has apparently started enforcing TPM 2.0 and Secure boot on Windows 11 to ensure a trusted platform while playing the game. In case you are wondering, enforcing TPM 2.0 ensures that people aren't cheating or using any exploits for the game. TPM is all about security, after all.
