Dragon Ball FighterZ is one of the bigger releases this month, but if you’re not a fan of Denuvo’s anti-tamper tech, then be warned.
It’s no huge surprise that Bandai Namco has added Denuvo based on their past releases such as Tekken 7 and Tales of Berseria. This time it’s taken some poking around in the Dragon Ball FighterZ EULA to confirm it. EasyAntiCheat will also be part of the release. Below is taken directly from the EULA.
24. THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE.
a) Denuvo. This Game is protected by Denuvo Anti-Tamper technology (“Anti-Tamper Technology”). By installing this Game, you acknowledge and consent that certain files of the Anti-Tamper Technology may remain even after the Game is uninstalled from your computer. For more information, please visit Denuvo’s website.
b) EasyAntiCheat. BANDAI NAMCO is using EasyAntiCheat anti-cheat service (“EAC”), which is operated by a third-party service provider. EAC has a client software that is integrated into the Game. When you start the Game, the EAC client software will automatically load and install its latest version to the Hardware. EAC will monitor the Hardware, analyze the Game binaries and scan Hardware memory for the purpose of detecting and preventing cheating in the Game (“Purpose”). For the Purpose, EAC stores information regarding cheating methods used in the Game (“Cheat Data”). By agreeing to this Agreement, or otherwise using this Game, you give your consent that EAC may gather, store, share, and publish Cheat Data for the Purpose. The Cheat Data will be used solely for the Purpose, including but not limited to identifying and banning players who are cheating in the Game, analyzing cheating behavior and cheating codes, as well as sharing data about cheats with affiliates of EAC.
Previous versions of Denuvo have been cracked but this latest version of Denuvo has not yet been circumvented so Dragon Ball FighterZ should be well protected for now. If Denuvo gives you the fear based on PC performance then you may want to give it a miss.
Dragon Ball FighterZ comes out on 25 January.
