Dragon Ball FighterZ Denuvo DRM Cracked and Is Playable Only

DRM in video games always gets cracked. Some take weeks, others take months. Dragon Ball FighterZ can now be added to the list as its Denuvo DRM has been cracked. Whilst it has taken a while for a crack to appear, it can do one thing most pirated games can’t: play online.

Thanks to a post on ResetEra by a user called TheEnd, we know that Dragon Ball FighterZ has been cracked. This news should come as a surprise to no one. What does come as a surprise, is that the cracked version can also be played online. Whilst some cracked games can play online, it’s rare for a big name title such as this. Even more astounding, is that this pirated version of Dragon Ball FighterZ can be played online with people who legitimately bought the game.

Dragon Ball FighterZ Denuvo DRM has been cracked

Denuvo DRM is used in games to protect the copyrights of developers and publishers. Some game developers use DRM so that their game will not be pirated. However, in recent years, it seems that Denuvo DRM is getting cracked faster than ever. Some PC gamers take a hardline stance against DRM and refuse to buy games that have it installed.

Denuvo DRM has been known to cause issues with some games, the most recent being Tekken 7. Shoryuken reported in April, that the PC version of Tekken 7 suffered from performance issues due to DRM. This prompted to Tekken director Katsuhiro Harada to say that a fix would be coming soon.

Dragon Ball FighterZ released earlier this year to critical and commercial acclaim. Both fans of the franchise and fighting game fans enjoy the game, with many considering it to be one of the best Dragon Ball Z video games ever created.

Dragon Ball FighterZ is available now on PS4, Xbox One and PC. A Nintendo Switch version of the game will be released on September 28.
