Borderlands 3, DRM Protection Says Goodbye to Denuvo
Borderlands 3, the fourth game in the Borderlands series and broken 46 days after its release, bid farewell to DRM guard Denuvo. Denuvo protection will no longer work in the background while playing the game. The video game industry has taken significant measures against piracy today. One of these measures is Denuvo, which we know as DRM (Digital Rights Management) protection. However, Denuvo is among the major names in the game world, although it can get a little ahead of pirate acting.
One of the things that make Denuvo controversial is that this system is constantly running in the background when it prevents piracy. Players stated that they experienced performance degradation in some games due to Denuvo. Today, news came to the delight of players against Denuvo.
Borderlands 3 says goodbye to Denuvo protection:
Borderlands 3, the fourth game in the Borderlands series, received a new update. According to the details in the update notes of the game, the Denuvo protection system will no longer be included in the PC version of the game. So Denuvo will no longer occupy your system in the background when you play Borderlands 3, at least it should be. While many Reddit users expected that Borderlands 3 getting rid of Denuvo would have improved the game’s performance, this was not the case. Players still encountered minor stutters while playing Borderlands 3. There was no change in the performance. So Denuvo’s removal did not affect the players much.
Borderlands 3 had already been broken 46 days after its release by the CODEX group. So the use of Denuvo protection in the game was no longer necessary. Once the game was broken, the need for Denuvo was greatly reduced. Denuvo is already offering discounts to developers after three months, considering the potential breakout time in pricing. The situation similar to the farewell to Denuvo after Borderlands 3 was broken was experienced in many games. Doom Eternal, which broke on the day of release, said goodbye to Denuvo about two months later. In the same week as Doom Eternal, Metro Exodus also parted its way with the protection system.
