Hm...
It seems that the games with Denuvo that where ported to Linux by Feral Interactive do not have Denuvo on Linux.
Maybe I can make an exception to my "I don't buy games with Denuvo" rule in those cases :thinking-face:

Ah thanks for the information. I read somewhere that it was ported to Linux, but that was just a random internet comment.
And now thinking about it... Irdeto would probably write about it on the Denuvo website.

In surprise move, cracked version of Jedi Fallen Order is no longer working. (unless you change time)
My guess is the group missing some clever time based trigger. I have to admin, clever play from Denuvo if this was intended.

The gamepass UWP version of Final Fantasy XV is Denuvo free and includes all DLC even Ardyn.
well UWP comes with own set of problems πŸ˜‚

(used to have denuvo on steam)
makes me hopefull for Prey and Youngblood one day , these are still stuck with denuvo (most likely eternal aswell)

well, maybe not Youngblood ... that one's "new" enough ...

but yeah, if they haven't removed it from Prey by now, they probably never will

Assassin's Creed Odyssey is having a free weekend, but sadly it's not playable right now due to an authentication error with Denuvo. :notlikethisblob:

Code:
launcher_log.txt

ERROR      DenuvoGetGameToken.cpp (235)                     Get activation token server error: Failure.

Just want to add to the sentiment, seeing them branch out to anti cheat is worrying, I don't want to support such a shite company but now I have, I own Doom.

lmao Deep Silver πŸ˜‚
Update: We have applied a rollback to the update that was causing the "Protection Error" message on Epic and Steam. We are now working on the re-submission for the Hotfix. -Deep Silver
how can you manage to remove DRM in such a way that game starts throwing "Protection error" ???
this is almost Squeenix level patching
goof job πŸ˜‚

I need to retest Metro Exodus performance, as I was often CPU bottlenecked in the newest expansion.
Not that I expect shocking, new findings tbh. Just my curiosity.
