EMPRESS has cracked Resident Evil 4 Remake, meaning that she was able to successfully bypass the latest version of Denuvo, Denuvo V18.
According to the cracker, Resident Evil 4 Remake used four different DRMs. Alongside Denuvo V18, Capcom has used Denuvo SecureDLC V2, its own Anti-Tamper tech, and VMProtect.
Now as with all cracks, this basically bypasses the aforementioned DRMs. It does not completely remove them, meaning that they are still running in the background. However, the cracked version may have fewer stutters than the retail version. After all, that’s exactly what happened with Resident Evil Village.
Since I’ve finished Resident Evil 4 Remake, I can say that the game only has traversal stutters. These stutters are mainly due to the game streaming data for the next areas. Thus, I believe that the pirated version will also have them. Still, it will be interesting to see a comparison video between them.
As always, we won’t allow links to pirated content. So no, don’t bother sharing any links to it.
It will be interesting to see whether EMPRESS will be able to crack the latest games using Denuvo. Dead Island 2 and Star Wars Jedi: Survivor came after RE4R. Jedi Survivor also uses the EA App, which may be too difficult to bypass. So yeah, I don’t expect this new Star Wars game to be cracked anytime soon.
Stay tuned for more!
