Conan Exiles: Denuvo Anti-Tamper Tech Cracked Again

It hasn’t even been a week since Resident Evil 7 was cracked, but Denuvo has faltered again for yet another brand-new title: Conan Exiles. Luckily for Denuvo, they did get a chance to sneak in a statement about why their anti-piracy solution was bypassed so quicklyآ—although it wasn’t a very good one, as the Austrian company’s only excuse was that their technology is only meant to be "hard to crack" and not "uncrackable." Well, Steam is telling me that Conan only came out on the 30thآ—if I was a game publisher that only got four days of protection, I would demand some of my money back.

[Update]: It turns out I may have jumped the gun on this story. The reality, which is probably less interesting, is that someone merely leaked an early copy of the gameآ—which didn't have Denuvo added yet...

Funcom disappointed a lot of fans when it announced that Conan Exiles would be using the Denuvo anti-tamper tech. However, it appears that pirates have won, once again. A DRM-free version of Conan Exiles has been leaked online, and this particular version is not plagued with the Denuvo anti-tamper tech. Conan Exiles is an always-online title that offers players the ability to host their own private servers and play the game. The game also supports local play.
