Starbreeze Studios’ upcoming co-op heist game Payment day 3 It’s just days away from launch, and in an uncommon move, a widely used digital rights management (DRM) system has been removed from the title. Primarily used to prevent pirates from bypassing defenses to access games, Irdeto’s Denuvo Anti-Tamper technology will no longer be part of the game.
“Hello Heystream, we want to inform you that Danube is no longer inside Payday 3,” Announced Starbreeze Global Brand Manager Elmir Listo in the update. “We look forward to seeing you in New York! Happy heist!”
Remember that Payment day 3 Will still remain an always online title even with this change. Unlike previous entries in the series, players can no longer play solo offline this time around. A Starbreeze account and persistent internet connection are required to play solo or co-op.
The use of Denuvo was first revealed in Payment day 3 The PC version as early as July when the game’s playtesting continued. The move caused Riot within the community For the inclusion of the technology that PC gamers believe causes performance issues in games, although Irdeto denies this. Starbreeze did not reveal why Denovo was removed from the title at the last minute, it could be to appease angry fans or for another reason entirely.
Denuvo also recently introduced new pieces of anti-jamming technologies aimed at new Unreal Engine titles. However, while the technology appears to be aimed at thwarting malicious actors, game moderators may also be affected by the new defenses if they are implemented.
Payment day 3 Launches September 21st for PC, Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 for $39.99. It will also be available on all Microsoft Xbox Game Pass subscribers in a one-day release. As with many games today, purchase Payment day 3 The Silver or Gold Special Edition will allow players to jump in on September 18th to start their heist sessions early.
