The most controversial anti-piracy is back stronger than ever and its new version seeks to shield the DLC
Denuvo has made headlines since the launch of its anti-piracy technology in 2014. This software from Denuvo Solutions, a subsidiary company of Sony, has not only “saved” companies.years of millionaire losses by preventing the use of software with intellectual property for free; it has also created huge problems and further separated the gaming community from the upper echelons of business.
This Denuvo update arrives under the name the Denuvo Secure DLC and it has been developed so that those games supported by the base software have all their post-launch additional content in a safe place. In fact, its implementation has been immediate and is already available in the latest Denuvo update, currently available under the version 8.0.
Denuvo Software Solutions knows that hacker groups often have some qualm when it comes to investing hours, days and even weeks in the DLC hack Y expansions, especially those that land in the game months or years after their arrival on the market. The means and time of these groups are very limitedbut sometimes certain post-launch content is “candy” for pirates, causing development studios to receive even less revenue.
“Denuvo has become a only option for developers guarantee the safety of your game against cheating, manipulation and piracy, and to protect the gaming experience”, adds Reinhard Blaukovitsch, CEO of the company in its official statement. “Our current customers, large and small, are delighted with the results and we are happy to help you maximize revenue and also enable new business models for these games that they put so much effort into building.”
At the moment, this official statement, which is collected by the American portal PCGamesN, does not anticipate which companies have joined the inclusion of this Denuvo SecureDLC. Even so, it is to be expected that its regular customers, among whom we find sega, Ubisoft, capcom either Electronic Artsare “playing” with this new version of the anti-piracy for their future releases.
Although a large part of the community does not have problems with the presence of similar software, Denuvo has earned the hatred of many players for something that they classify as a “intrusive software”. Unlike StarForce, for example, which was installed for years at the kernel level of our PC, Denuvo is much less harmful, although its implementation has had a huge impact due to the problems that it has generated with Alder Lake or, most notably, with the performance of the games themselves.
