Ubisoft, EA & SEGA protected their games in 2017 as the latest version of Denuvo hasn't been cracked

It appears that Denuvo has managed to win the last big battle of 2017. On October 26th, Ubisoft released the latest Assassin’s Creed game that was powered by the latest version of the Denuvo anti-tamper tech. And after two whole months, this new version of Denuvo is still safe from crackers and hackers.

Who the hell wants to pay for Origins anyway... people can wait til its cracked.. plenty of other games in the mean time... also.. Payback has been cracked... it has been for a good while too.

That's the issue really. People like Skidrow haven't spent a lot of time on it because no one in the community even wants the game. It'll get cracked and quickly when something appears that people really desire.

No one wants the new Assassin’s Creed cracked to play? You got to be kidding. Denial much!

The new Denuvo gamers aren't cracked because they are bitch to crack... not because no one in the community want to play those games.

If you are around the communities like skidrow then you would see the remarks. A handful of people on the forum isn't the entire community.

Lon3wolf350d ago

Are you saying these groups (Skidrow being one of the oldest) only crack software when asked to? I always thought it was the prestige of being first and showing your skills?

morganfell350d ago

No that is not what I am saying at all.

You need to read. People aren't climbing the walls for the game like some other titles, screaming from the rooftops. Yes there are people that want it but it is by no means a do or die item. It just isn't popular enough.

I paid for origins. Half off, but still payed for what looks like a decent game.

If people want to pirate and play the game so bad, then couldn't they just buy the game since its been on sale for over a month now.

Stop being a cheap bastard.

Weeblordbad349d ago

They'll just talk about lack of demos, or the freedom from that cursed Denuvo hit to performance. It's all bullshit of course it's just kids and cheap people who want to play games but dont want to pay. You guys hate on GaaS a lot, what do you think was a reason for the rise of GaaS? Couldn't possibly be piracy...right?

Psychotica350d ago

A lot of people wanted to play it. It's an awesome game, very well done.

The DRM is so intrusive that it hammers performance on PC. They've basically thrown the baby out with the bath water. If I were to buy this game now, it would be on console, not PC. I'm all for effective protection, but it can't come at the expense of the game itself.

Hammers performance? To what degree? What's the delta there? It performs fine for me and any time I've looked at PC footage it has run fine. The game is fine, far from compromised by performance issues stemming from protection.

Seafort349d ago

Your CPU will be at 100% usage with Assassins Creed Origins due to the double DRM. CPU usage should never hit 100% no matter what.

Ubisoft can say what they want about the DRM not hurting performance but when the DRM makes thousands of calls per second something has got to give and that means performance is hit for most if not all people trying to play the game.

I know my CPU hits 100% around 95% of the time playing the game. What happens when this DRM is finally cracked? They going to add a 3rd or 4th layer of DRM onto their games just to make sure they're protected at the expense of performance and playability?

DillyDilly350d ago

How can they thank Denuvo ? They are now putting VMProtect on top of Denuvo. Thats the thing making it harder not just new Denuvo

kevnb350d ago

Most version of Denuvo have vmprotect actually, they just never mentioned it until now. Probably because vmprotect called Denuvo out for using the wrong license for their product.

Cobra951350d ago

The point is that it's the VMProtect constant calling of protection code (inside the game's main loop) that kills performance. The result is a well-protected ruined game. Who wants that?

KillZallthebeast350d ago

Taunt the hackers. Surely that will stop them. Also wtf n4g pop up ads aren't cool

Sgt_Slaughter350d ago

Oh trust me, they can and they will when they feel like it. Nothing is unhackable.

Psychotica350d ago

They will eventually, but no doubt they have run into a brick wall. It's not because they don't feel like it
