After analyzing the latest Doom update, it looks like Bethesda has removed Denuvo from the game. For those who don’t know, Denuvo is an anti-tamper tech created by an Austrian company called Denuvo Software Solutions. It is gaining popularity among PC developers and was used by Just Cause 3. Denuvo Software Solutions claimed that its tech isn’t DRM:
Denuvo Anti-Tamper technology prevents the debugging, reverse engineering and changing of executable files to strengthen the security of games. It is not a DRM solution, but rather, Denuvo Anti-tamper protects DRM solutions, such as Origin Online Access or the Steam license management system, from being circumvented.
The claims of the company or how well the system works won’t matter if developers keep patching it out. Doom is not the only game that patched out Denuvo. Just recently, Inside got a similar update that removed Denuvo.
One wonders why the developers would remove an effective anti-temper system but whatever their reasons are, they do not matter. Developers aim to protect their games during the first few months of its release so removing Denuvo won’t matter for Doom or Inside anymore.
Those who wish to buy it have already done so while others may pirate it and if they like what they, may actually decide to pay for it. Head over here for more details regarding the new Doom update.
Doom is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
