Total War Three Kingdoms and Team Sonic Racing are using the Denuvo anti-tamper tech

SEGA has revealed – via their official Steam store pages – that both Total War: THREE KINGDOMS and Team Sonic Racing will be using the Denuvo anti-tamper tech. This is a big surprise since SEGA had removed Denuvo from Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami and Sonic Mania, and has recently released Yakuza Kiwami 2 without that controversial anti-tamper tech.

It’s really disappointing witnessing SEGA taking one step backwards regarding the DRM implementation in its titles. Still, we should note that pretty much all the latest Total War games use Denuvo so we don’t know whether its inclusion was made by the developers themselves or whether it was forced by the publisher.

Team Sonic Racing is currently scheduled for a May 21st release, whereas Total War: THREE KINGDOMS is planned for a May 23rd release.

SEGA has already provided us with a review code for this new Total War game so expect our PC Performance Analysis to go live prior to the game’s release.
