It looks like players might have to deal with the Denuvo DRM when going through the upcoming Redfall video game.
MS and Bethesda operate independently for the most part. Now, the Denuvo situation is definitely coming from Bethesda since none of MS's first party PC titles never used it. Just like they canceled the PS5 version, MS should also tell Bethesda to not use any DRM on their future games.
Your getting disagrees probably from games under ms using anti cheat based drm. I agree 100% denuvo has to go it always has a online 24/7 connection requirement and tanks performance.
I don’t understand why they need DRM for an always online game???
Its always online because of the drm remove denuvo that would go away. Unless it is a online coop/mp game only then yeah no need for drm except anti cheat.
@Mika Lol that was a SAD attempt to deflect blame. Also, a masterstroke of bundling future good deed of ending DRM with MS blocking others from playing multiplatform games. Kudos. You should be in charge of propaganda for a totalitarian regime somewhere.
This game can't get out of its own way with with questionable PR
I understand that Bethesda operates independently but it's still bullshit. Denuvo is garbage and has been proven to impact performance.
Add it to the checklist of disappointments for Redfall these past couple of weeks: Always online? Check No Unreal Engine 5 support? Check DRM? Check
Better not go to the ign news about gameplay of this game on a high end pc...
Why what's up with ign? Just curious
The latest IGN gameplay was horrendous. Not only could the person not play but the game looks mediocre this time around.
Graphics, animation, AI, bosses that cant turnaround, doesn't see you but you are in front of him...
I saw the gameplay and it looked great, what was horrendous about it besides the awful player, who just kept running around? The game looks super fun.
@thesoftware730 Aside from the modern journalist behind the gamepad (yikes), boss AI just sucks. It's acting very dumb: lightly jogs at you, then punch a few times and after that just rests for a few seconds. Teleported near you? Oof, got to catch his breath again. Look at the fight inside the house, it's a mess, boss doesn't know what to do and he's getting stuck often (they even had to do a cut there). Boss animations are also looking half-baked, not smooth at all. He's a bullet sponge as well. But it's looter-shooter, so that's a given, i guess. Not saying it's not fun or something. But it's not a good showing. Remember Prey? It had smart regular enemies. This is a boss, it's supposed to be one of the highlights of the game. Not... this.
Where is the usual suspects to defend it lol 😂😂😂
This is the same IGN that almost gave Cup head a low score because he couldn't get past the tutorial. IGN is notorious for terrible gameplay from these ppl. Running around aimlessly using powers and when he wasn't suppose to running into to rooms for no reason not healing team mates. Frantically moving around in janky way that makes the game look bad. Like they never picked a controller in their lives. Regardless it did hurt game significantly from a presentational standpoint. It won't do any long term damage the game will end up fine if we're going by the previews.
I have to agree with you there. It does look mediocre but to Xbox fans it looks like a masterpiece
God the way he let his team mates die, tried to open lock doors in the middle of a fight, kept the battle inside a small house and then stole the final kill in the end.
You forgot one more check, well hopefully. EMPRESS? ✔️ Check (maybe) If she can do something about always online. Remember Crash Bandicoot 4 was always online yet, that was not a problem.
The DRM stuff is trash but not being UE5 won't make or break the game.
It's just disappointing when we all thought it was in UE5 for the past year or more, to suddenly have it clarified so late in the day that it won't be. UE5 gave us all hope that it was going to feel fresh. Everyone gave Redfall the benefit of the doubt with the early showings, but now we know this is it. There's no additional polish coming and we're definitely not looking at an old build. It was hyped far and wide back then as one of the first games in development for UE5, so it kinda sucks.
Just keep on checking the no boxes for any serious gamer.
Let's see if EMPRESS has anything to say about that. Redfall might be her next target if she can fix that always online 🙃 How's that Denuvo shit working out for you in Hogwart's Legacy after EMPRESS had her hands on it lol.
Don't be a skanky pirate.
Empress didn't remove Denuvo. Denuvo is bypassed and is still running in the background, you know nothing looool!!!
mediocrity with denuvo. RIP
Pfft that is pathetic
This game doesn't need Denuvo The fact that it will be a mediocre game at best... will make a lot of players stay away from it No worries there :))
I'm shocked I tell you!!! SHOCKED!!!!! With this game Arkane is making sure they become nothing more than a distant memory in our eyes. RETRO eat your heart out. In all seriousness, this game looks absolutely terrible - IGN gaming prowess not wistanding. Way worst than the Suicide Squad, and even Gotham Knight, by a long shot. Jeez. From Dishonored to Prey - Classics - to this...Outstanding!
