As you may already know, Mass Effect: Andromeda was cracked in almost ten days. What you didn’t know, however, is that its retail/vanilla version was powered by the old version of the Denuvo anti-tamper tech. Contrary to other developers and instead of removing Denuvo, BioWare decided to update it to its new version via the game’s first post-launch patch.
According to reports, this new version of Mass Effect: Andromeda comes with the new Denuvo anti-tamper tech. The evidence lies within the game’s executable file, as it contains strings that can be only found in all the other games that are powered by the latest version of Denuvo (and were not present in the vanilla version of Mass Effect: Andromeda).
For what it’s worth, the games that are powered by the new Denuvo anti-tamper tech are 2Dark, Dead Rising 4, Nier: Automata and now Mass Effect: Andromeda.
This new version of the Denuvo anti-tamper tech has not been cracked yet, so it will be interesting to see whether it will be able to protect future games from being cracked or not.
