Dragon Ball FighterZ launched earlier this year for PC and current-gen consoles. Despite the game using a Denuvo DRM for the PC version, the game has been cracked.
While the hackers are able to crack the games that use Denuvo DRM rather quickly nowadays but, for Dragon Ball FighterZ it took them over 6 months to crack.
While the pirated games aren’t capable of going online but the cracked version of the Dragon Ball FighterZ allows players to play online. Reportedly, the crack bypasses the DRM by messing with the SteamID.
Not only that, pirated players are not only able to play online but are also able to play with players that have purchased the game.
Bandai Namco and developer Arc System Works has not issued any statement over the DRM being bypassed. However, this could be rectified, at least the online part, with a simple patch. We will have to wait and see how the devs will tackle this situation.
Speaking of the Denuvo DRM, Dragon Ball FighterZ is not the only fighting video game to use it as Tekken 7 also implemented this DRM. However, according to game director, Denuvo DRM affects the game’s performance on PC.
Problem occurred in “TEKKEN7 for PC”. that the frame rate drops when hits such as Akuma’s “Shakunetsu Hadouken”.
Since it’s not a problem of graphics & CPU processing, it will not solve even if changing PC setting (problem with encryption program).
We’ll fix Soon. Sorry Plz wait.
However, these are not only games to use this particular DRM as reportedly Assassin’s Creed Origins uses two DRMs namely Denuvo and VMProtect which causes the game to use 100% of the CPU and which in turn affects the performance.
However, Ubisoft has assured that the 100% CPU usage is not because of the implemented DRMs but because of the “living, systemic and majestic open world of Ancient Egypt”.
Dragon Ball FighterZ is a fighting video game developed by Arc System Work for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
