Dead Rising 4 on Steam and Syberia 3 are two anticipated PC releases. However, a number of PC gamers – that boycott games using the Denuvo anti-tamper tech – will have to skip them as it appears that both of these titles will be powered by it.
Dead Rising 4 was originally released exclusively on Windows Store last December. After an almost three-month exclusivity, Capcom decided to bring this new zombie title to Steam. And according to its Steam page, the game will be using the Denuvo anti-tamper tech.
The same applies to Syberia 3. Syberia 3 is one of the most anticipated new adventure games of 2017 and is coming to Steam on April 20th. And unfortunately, the game will be using the Denuvo anti-tamper tech.
For what it’s worth, a certain scene group has been able to crack most of the Denuvo-powered titles, so it will be interesting to see whether the developers of the aforementioned titles will remove it once and if their games get cracked.
We’ve seen this happening in the past. Both Crytek and id Software removed the Denuvo anti-tamper tech from their games once they were cracked. However, not all developers are willing to remove this anti-tamper tech from their games. Resident Evil 7, for example, still uses it, even though it was cracked just a few days after its release.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
