Far Cry 5 will include Denuvo piracy protection

This will not come as too much of a surprise to most Ubisoft gamers but it has been confirmed nevertheless. Ubisoft is implementing the Denuvo anti-tamper piracy protection in the upcoming Far Cry 5.

Ahead of the March release, the EULA that’s appeared on Steam confirms the presence of Denuvo which at least warns players of its presence ahead of launch. The note in the EULA also mentions that DRM could limit the number of installations.

“THE PRODUCT IS PROTECTED BY DIGITAL RIGHTS MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE (“DRM SOFTWARE”) AND DENUVO ANTI-TAMPER PROTECTION TECHNOLOGY (“ANTI-TAMPER TECHNOLOGY”). YOU HEREBY AGREE, ACKNOWLEDGE AND CONSENT TO THE FOLLOWING REGARDING THE DRM SOFTWARE: (I) THE INSTALLATION OF THE PRODUCT WILL CAUSE THE DRM SOFTWARE TO BE INSTALLED ON YOUR COMPUTER; (II) THE DRM SOFTWARE MAY LIMIT THE NUMBER OF INSTALLATIONS OF THE PRODUCT.”

This past weekend it appears that the latest version of Denuvo 4.8 has been circumvented by crackers but whetherUbisoft adds additional protection. Assassin’s Creed Origins remains uncracked still which is good news for Ubi and they will be hoping that Far Cry 5 stays safe and secure.

      I wouldn’t have even pirated it. Modern Farcry sucks and this one has the added layer of being sjw-tier bad.
      A pointless endeavor really.

      Denuvo = No Buy, Saw entire Far Cry collection for sale on steam not buying any of it because of Denuvo used in Far Cry 4 or 5…

      I will wait to play an Unauthroized copy when its cracked, but I am not paying for Invasive DRM software which runs of a Virtual Machine and degrades performance while the game is running.

      When I buy a game I want to be able to play the game 30 years down the line as well, not having to worry about 3rd party DRM limiting game-play or anything like this or taking up extra resources.
