NieR: Automata will be using the Denuvo anti-tamper tech

NieR: Automata is a highly anticipated game that will be released on the PC on March 17th. However, we have some bad news for all those boycotting games that are using the Denuvo anti-tamper tech. NieR: Automata will be using Denuvo.

Although the game’s Steam store page does not mention it, its EULA makes it perfectly clear that it will be using the Denuvo anti-tamper tech.

According to the game’s EULA:

“12.6 The PC version of the Product Software uses Sony DADC Austria AG’s Denuvo (“Denuvo”) content protection technology. Acceptance of this Agreement, Privacy Policy, Terms of Use and an Internet connection are required to verify your license. The technical protection measures of the Product Software may require you to download certain data to your device in order to authenticate the Product Software. Certain files of the anti-tamper technology may remain even after the Product Software is uninstalled from your computer.”

And that is that everyone!
