Deep Silver and 4A Games have recently updated the Steam page of Metro Exodus (whose release was anticipated on February 15) revealing that the title will use Denuvo anti-tamper technology, news that will generate some discussions among PC players.
The well-known anti-tamper technology is often at the center of various controversies because of its impact on performance in the titles in which it is implemented, without considering that lately Denuvo no longer seems able to properly protect the products that implement it, just think of Just Cause 4 or Hitman 2, both violated just a few days after their debut.
As reported by Dsogaming, the implementation of Denuvo in Metro Exodus makes it very unlikely to release the title on GOG, the DRM-free platform of CD Projekt of which is present instead of the previous episodes of the franchise, Metro 2033 Redux, and Metro Last Light Redux.
Recall that the new episode of the series will be available starting February 15 also on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. In Metro Exodus, they will dress up as Artyom and will have to lead a group of Ranger on an incredible journey to the East through a post-apocalyptic Russia in search of a new life. It will be a first-person shooter focused on an engaging plot full of twists, combining lethal fights, stealth mode, exploration, survival, and horror.
