Valorant Won't Run on Windows 11 Without TPM 2.0

Riot is updating its Vanguard anti-cheat system. As a result, Valorant will not work on Windows 11 without TPM 2.0.

Windows 11 will be released as early as October 5, 2021. One of the important system requirements for the new OS is TPM 2.0. However, as it turns out, the component will be required not only for the operation of the OS itself. Valorant, the online shooter from Riot Games, also will not work without the aforementioned device.

This turn of events began to be reported by people with access to the Windows 11 beta. After launching Valorant in Build 22000.176 and Build 22449 users started seeing messages about the requirement to have TPM 2.0 and Secure Boot. Without them we won't be able to play Riot's title on the new OS. This situation is due to the update of the Vanguard anti-cheat solution.

TPM 2.0 (Trusted Platform Module) is a small component whose task is to increase hardware security. It is used for cryptographic operations such as data encryption (more information on the topic can be found here).

Although in the case of Windows 11 there is a way to avoid the requirement for TPM 2.0, it does not work for apps running on the system. If other companies go the same way as Riot Games, it could mean that purchasing the module will become a necessity.
