CoD: Vanguard/Warzone Season One Includes New Kernel Level Driver

The Call of Duty Blog has details on Season One for Call of Duty: Vanguard, which gets underway on December 8th. The first 24 hours will be Early Access for those who own Call of Duty: Vanguard, and after that it will be free-to-play for everyone. This will launch the new Warzone Pacific map, bringing the Pacific theater of World War II to the battle royale 70 years to the day after the US declared war on Japan. Word is: "Featuring a dedicated Playlist with new vehicles and Vanguard weapons, Warzone Pacific’s first season kicks off another year of free content comprised of 15 huge, distinct areas to explore and fight across." The launch will also include a new kernel-level anti-cheat driver, which is news that never fails to spark controversy. Here's word:
As part of the Season One update, RICOCHET Anti-Cheat will deploy a new, internally developed kernel-level driver on PC to assist in identifying cheaters in Warzone. This will allow players to focus more on the fun new offerings in Warzone Pacific as #TeamRICOCHET fights unfair play with its new anti-cheat security initiative. This kernel-level driver is coming first to Warzone and will be required for all PC players as of this update.

Caldera and Warzone Pacific are just the beginning for the free content to be offered in Season One of Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone. Stay tuned for additional intel about two free functional weapons, new Operator, Zombies content, Multiplayer modes and two maps all launching on December 8, including a Pacific-inspired take on a fan-favorite Call of Duty map. Later in the seasons fans can expect two more Operators, an additional core Multiplayer map and returning small-team tactical mode, additional Zombies info, another free weapon unlocked via Challenges and a festive celebration across both games.

People have a problem with this but carry around phones, own 12 different products with alexa or some other assistant, and already using a pc connected to the internet with more security holes than you'll ever understand, but this is crossing the line and is too invasive even though Riot has been doing kernel level anti-cheat for the last 2 years in ALL OF THEIR TITLES.

People are fucking stupid.

Ah yes, there goes any desire I would have had to install Warzone.

Unfortunately, kernel level drivers don't work either. It's hard to stop the attacker when the attacker is the user.

Anyone remember Sony's Music DRM that allowed rooting a system if an attacker put a file in Sony's folder?

I'm pretty wary of kernel level drivers for things as trivial as games, but ultimately cheat creators have left developers the choice of either using these more invasive methods, or simply letting multiplayer get ruined by cheating. You can ban all the people you want but by the time you do, the damage is done. Clearly ban waves alone don't work to keep PC multiplayer from becoming a cheatfest.
