The world of PC gaming has managed to put a lot of pressure on pirates with the launch of the Denuvo system of anti-piracy, but as everything good ends, it eventually was eventually defeated by pirates, and cases like Andromeda Mass Effect being cracked in only one day, and Resident Evil 7 taking only five to be broken led us to believe that we would once again enter an age of piracy on the PC .
Well, it seems Assassin’s Creed Origins is there to prove it not so fast, my dear.
Since the game was released exactly a month ago, Assassin’s Creed Origins has not yet been cracked by anyone, thanks to its combination of Denuvo and VMProtect , thus possessing two levels of copy protection and making life more difficult for pirates than they imagine.
Other games that were being cracked in record time were only using Denuvo, and with the vulnerabilities of the protection system starting to appear, it was easy to break the anti-copy system of the game.
Now, even breaking one of the systems, the other end up holding the attempt to hack the game, thus requiring a crack that breaks both systems simultaneously.
In addition to Assassin’s Creed Origins , other games that were not cracked recently were Injustice 2 , Football Manager 2018 , Need for Speed Payback and Star Wars Battlefront 2 .
In the case of these other games, they have used the latest version of Denuvo only, and she seems to be giving the message up to here.
It’s worth noting here that anti-piracy systems are not exactly good for a crack-free game forever, but to protect you from copying for the first 2 or 3 months, which accounts for almost 90% of a game’s total sales.
Is piracy going to suffer another setback with these innovations?
This is what we are going to discover in the coming months.
