Denuvo has finally been cracked

 

It looks like Denuvo has finally been cracked, with a Rise of the Tomb Raider becoming available to pirates without using Steam or the Denuvo bypass trick. 

Unlike other recent methods that have been used to bypass Denuvo's DRM, which all have been recently blocked/ patched out. This new "cracked" version of Rise of the Tomb Raider seems to be using a proper DRM crack which can prevent all of the game's DRM triggers from executing, opening up the game to piracy. 

Right now it looks like this same method can be used to crack more Denuvo protected games in the future, though it may be a time-consuming process since every Denuvo protected game has its own unique patterns which govern DRM checks. 

  Denuvo has finally been cracked?

 

As always when it comes to "cracked" or Pirated games it is unknown whether the hackers responsible have added anything more than their DRM crack to the game, meaning that the piracy of games and other media will always come with risks to the end user.

At OC3D we do not condone piracy, we are only reporting on this crack because it is the first time that Denuvo's seemingly unbeatable DRM has officially been broken. Right now Rise of the Tomb Raider is on Sale on the Humble Store for £25.99, which is 35% off the game's original retail price. 

In the future, it is likely that Denuvo will continue to enhance and improve their DRM, though it is a massive achievement that Denuvo's DRM has taken so long to be broken.

This kind of stuff really makes no difference to me. I never, ever pirate games. Why would you? There's plenty of media out there now to make an informed decision before purchasing; YouTube, hundreds of reputable review sites, Twitch, forums. It's not like the old days where you had a two page spread in a magazine (if you bought it) and the back of the box to go on.

If you can't use the internet to gather all the information you need and "need to play the game and then buy it" then you're seriously doing something wrong. If you just don't want to pay for stuff then you're a thief and should be treated as such.

I'm not the biggest fan of capitalism and I'd argue that most games are overpriced these days, especially when you factor in DLC's, but the long and short is that the market is what it is. You pay if you want it on release or you wait for a sale. You can't get away with stealing a car from a showroom in the first week of sale and then paying later when the price has halved so why should you do it with games?Quote

Because by the time you are done reading a review it completely spoils the game. Yeah, you could just glance at the score but that has no bearing on whether or not it will run well on your hardware (see also GTAIV).

I've been burnt so many times on games it's not funny, that's why I was downloading them before buying them. In the past it was close to impossible to get a refund on a game if it was crap too, even all the way back in the SNES days where I spent £50 on Pitfighter only to find it a horrific broken mess. I'd gone from the Megadrive review (where it actually worked properly and got a decent score).

Now though? Steam give you a few hours to try for yourself. Not because they wanted to, mind, but more because it was EU law.Quote

Anyone have any experience refunding games from Ubisoft or EA? I would be hesitant buying any Ubisoft title on the PC they are usually a hot mess, but I think its an age thing as I have gotten older pirating became less and less appealing,

I know Demo's are just too expensive to make these days I wish they would allow dev's to specify some kind of trial system like for a game as big as fallout you could give people 6 hours and they wouldn't scratch the surface but get a much better feel for the game and smaller more narrative driven games could be given the same length as a steam refund I think that could be a cheap and effective solution to demoing modern games.Quote
