This just in, the upcoming Far Cry: Primal will be protected with Denuvo Anti-Tamper technology. The news was confirmed on Far Cry: Primal’s EULA page on Steam where it states that the game will be protected by Denuvo’s anti-tampering technology. Below is an excerpt from the story.
THE PRODUCT IS PROTECTED BY DIGITAL RIGHTS MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE (“DRM SOFTWARE”) AND DENUVO ANTI-TAMPER PROTECTION TECHNOLOGY
What’s surprising about this is that the EULA page also states that there might be some traces of these files left on your computer even after you remove the game from your PC. Denuvo first showed signs back in 2014 when games like Lords of the Fallen remained uncracked by pirates for quite a long time. A cracker group known by CPY managed to crack the game by finding an exploit but that has been patched up by the company ever since.
The recent games to have Denuvo is Batman: Arkham Knight and Just Cause 3, according to the Chinese group 3DM, bypassing Denuvo is becoming more and more difficult now, this is due to the dynamic nature of Denuvo that changes every time someone tries to bypass it. This may very well be the end of piracy as we know it.
