STAR WARS Jedi Survivor new screenshot

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is using the Denuvo anti-tamper tech

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor releases in a couple of days and from the looks of it, this new Star Wars game is using the Denuvo anti-tamper tech.

The first indication comes from the game’s executable file. Like most games that use Denuvo, the executable file of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is over 300MB. Additionally, according to users that have used HEX Editors, Denuvo is indeed present in the executable.

This shouldn’t be surprising to anyone. After all, EA has used the anti-tamper tech in both Dead Space Remake and Need for Speed: Unbound. Thus, most of us assumed that Star Wars Jedi: Survivor would be also using it.

Now before picking your pitchforks, we should note that Denuvo may not affect, in a negative way, the game’s performance. After all, Dead Island 2, the latest game that uses it, is running incredibly well on a wide range of PC configurations.

From what we’ve seen, we can expect the game to suffer from some traversal stutters. Or at least that’s what caught my eye in some of its latest gameplay trailers.

For those wondering, EA has not provided us with a review code. So, don’t expect a day-1 PC Performance Analysis for this title. Nevertheless, we’ve already purchased it so we’ll be sharing our initial thoughts on launch day.

Stay tuned for more!
