Sega with Amplitude Studio‘The latest PC strategy game Humanity The Denuvo anti-piracy technology is being removed before the game is released to ensure a good experience for players.
A developer confirmed on the game forum that humans, who are seen as competitors of the strategy game “Civilization”, will remove its anti-piracy technology before the game is launched.
Amplitude staff said that the game is being tracked to be particularly popular, which makes it a major target for pirates, but despite the possible loss of profits, the developer will delete Denuvo to ensure that paying players have the best experience in the game.
“We are one of the most popular games on Steam this year, so we know that we will be the target of pirates, more than any of our previous games. If Denuvo can postpone the cracked version, even if it is only a few days, it can really help We protect our releases,” said creative director Romain de Waubert.
“That said, our priority is always to provide the best experience for the players who buy our games and support us. Denuvo should not affect the performance of the players. We don’t want to sacrifice quality for you.”
This is a good preemptive move that should help offset some of the negative emotions about the game (especially considering that DRM is now a painful topic after the collapse of the entire Resident Evil Village).
It’s nice to see that the developers are proactive in their interaction with DRM: often, the game will start before the problem is outlined and corrected. For example, Metal Gear Rising’s DRM disables the Mac version of the game, and Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time locks players out of single-player games due to the always-on DRM.
Hope that more studios will notice how Amplitude handles this issue in this situation.
In last year’s game preview, our own Alex Donaldson said that “humanity looks like a complex and unique presentation of historical grand strategy types.” You can check out our Humankind hands-on preview in the link.
The game will be released for PC in August.
