Gearbox has released a new patch for Borderlands 3 that removes the Denuvo anti-tamper tech from it.
Will be interesting to see if these "boycotters" put their money where their mouth is. My guess is they won't, sales won't increase, and they will fall back on the line "too little too late" which will completely justify their use of the system in the first place, as even by removing it, those who claim they're boycotting it, wouldn't of bought it anyway, at least the vast majority of them.
Most people who wanted it already bought it i guess... And yes most people who complain wont even buy the game, But I know for a fact that denuvo can screw up things, FFXV was the single game i had serious trouble because denuvo
It is too little too late, people move on from games onto another, plus a lot of the boycotters would have just justified pirating it instead.
This is not a new game anymore, so nobody that didn't already got the game on release will run to get it now. Or at least not in the amount need to actually create a increase in sales. If the Denuvo was not there in the first place, they could have indeed got some extra sales from people that dislike the presence of software - if it would be enough to justify the risk is another story. But that is now a lost opportunity.
Guess I was right. The boycotters are full of it. Cry when they don't get their own way, then fail to back it up when publishers give into it.
Playing earlier today it just felt smoother with better FPS on my mid low end pc. I thought they’re optimised it but this makes sense.
Way too late!!
Sounds like someone's licence expired.
I see so many of these headlines...why isn't Denuvo just abandoned entirely
