Capcom has eliminated controversial anti-cheat Denuvo from now-iconic horror sport Resident Evil Village, mirroring fellow Japanese titan, Square Enix.
According to SteamDB, Denuvo was eliminated from Resident Evil Village within the early hours of April 10. The change reads “Removed third-Party DRM – Denuvo Anti-tamper, 5 totally different PC inside a day machine activation restrict.”
While this appears prefer it got here out of nowhere, Square Enix additionally eliminated Denuvo from hit RPG sport Disco Elysium, in addition to Triangle Strategy on Thursday, April 6. There’s no affirmation that the 2 are linked, however it might clarify Capcom’s choice.
Denuvo has actually earned fairly the fame over time, being blamed for decreasing sport efficiency and, in flip, straight up ruining the participant expertise. Quite a lot of video games have eliminated the system post-release when the hype has died down, so given the age of Village, Disco Elysium, and Triangle Strategy (that damage to kind), it might merely be keep away from efficiency points.
While I fortunately had no issues with Village – besides that the entire Lady D sequence was too quick, however I digress – hopefully this implies future gamers may have a smoother expertise than some had at launch.
