More than three years have passed since the release of the shooter DOOM Eternal, but the developers at id Software continue to improve their game. Recently, Denuvo anti-piracy protection was permanently removed from the PC version.
Unlike many other developers, the creators of DOOM Eternal did not hide the fact that Denuvo was removed from the game, but made it an official part of a small update 6.66 Rev 2.2.
In the comments to the announcement, users were excited about the release of Denuvo’s DOOM Eternal and the potential performance improvements. “Best update so far”– thinks joe. Many other gamers agree with him.
At launch, Bethesda had already accidentally left DOOM Eternal without Denuvo protection, giving users the opportunity to test the game’s performance without the intervention of the Austrian system.
In addition to Denuvo, 6.66 Rev 2.2 removes accelerators from DOOM Eternal (this applies to all platforms), which allowed you to get part of the experience collected by another user. The reasons for abandoning the system are not given.
DOOM Eternal is available for PC (Steam), PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, and Nintendo Switch. In May 2020, following community pressure, the developers removed the Denuvo anti-cheat from the game.
