Capcom has eliminated controversial anti-cheat Denuvo from now-iconic horror recreation Resident Evil Village, mirroring fellow Japanese titan, Sq. Enix.
In accordance with SteamDB, Denuvo was faraway from Resident Evil Village within the early hours of April 10. The change reads “Eliminated third-Get together DRM – Denuvo Anti-tamper, 5 completely different PC inside a day machine activation restrict.”
Whereas this appears to be like prefer it got here out of nowhere, Sq. Enix additionally eliminated Denuvo from hit RPG recreation Disco Elysium, in addition to Triangle Technique on Thursday, April 6. There is not any affirmation that the 2 are linked, however it could clarify Capcom’s resolution.
Denuvo has definitely earned fairly the status through the years, being blamed for decreasing recreation efficiency and, in flip, straight up ruining the participant expertise. Lots of video games have eliminated the post-release system when the hype has died down, so given the age of Village, Disco Elysium, and Triangle Technique (that harm to kind), it could merely be to keep away from efficiency points.
Whereas I fortunately had no issues with Village – besides that the entire Girl D sequence was too brief, however I digress – hopefully this implies future gamers may have a smoother expertise than some had at launch.
PCGamesN has reached out to Capcom for additional data, and can replace this text accordingly.
