PC gamers would receive the Assassin’s Creed Mirage with an additional merge of controversial anti-temper technology. Mirage was highly anticipated to add more to an impressive existing lineup of the Assassin series. However, the inclusion of some controversial technology may pull it down among the gaming community.
Ubisoft has added Denuvo anti-tamper technology in its most anticipated Assassin’s Creed Mirage in an attempt to make security even more vigorous and impermeable.
As spotted, on the day one patch of the game, along with many updates, the use of DRM Denouvo in Mirage was evident. Meanwhile, reviewers began to share their verdict on the at-the-spot decision of the developer, claiming it would reduce the performance.
It is worth noting that the use of Denuvo DRM in games is yet a controversial and under-discussion topic on the debate desk. Many gamers believe the use of this technology greatly reduces the performance of games, which is a key aspect of entertainment and enjoyment.
In an era Where developers are committed to enhancing the performance of games in accordance with the desired trends of art, the use of Denuvo Drm meaningfully raises questions about Ubisoft’s decision.
However, after the patch, when Assassin’s Creed Mirage was tested, the performance was exactly the same as seen in the pre-patch version. This means unlike the other games in which Denuvo DRM significantly affected the game, and the game was an exception to that.
Meanwhile, the addition of Denuvo DRM might have impacted the game reviews, so Ubisoft added Denuvo after the reviews while this decision of Ubisoft has aroused outrage from the fans as they believe it’s against transparency.
Zalthos expressed concern on Reddit about Ubisoft’s update strategy for their game. They are waiting for the reviews to come out before updating their game and putting in DRM. According to Zalthos, the bigger issue here is that Ubisoft is not being honest about its practice from the beginning. It doesn’t matter whether it’s Denuvo or not, it’s just a sneaky and unfair way of doing things.
Nonetheless, it was already leaked that Assassin’s Creed Mirage is going to get a Denuvo DRM; however, adding it after reviews is truly controversial.
On the other hand, the developers argue for the addition of this controversial tool by claiming that the content of creation exclusively belongs to the company and it is a necessary measure to protect the intellectual property of game developers and publishers.
Furthermore, Denuvo Drm requires activation or periodic re-verification, and for that, an online connection is crucial, which can be problematic for players with unstable internet connections or those who prefer to play offline.

it’s not new, as recent releases like Lies of P also added Denuvo Drm after the early access launch. While it is worth noting in some cases, the anti-temper technology is removed before it’s even out after getting backlash from users, Payday 3 is an evident example of that.
Usually, as time flies, the interest in the game fades, and at that time, developers remove Denuvo Drm as it greatly reduces the chances of the game getting pirated.
