Oculus DRM on Unreal Engine titles gets cracked

Posted on Monday, May 23 2016 @ 14:22 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
The Revive project has come up with a way to circumvent the DRM that protects Unreal Engine titles for the Oculus Rift headset. By using Revive's new software tool, gamers with non-Rift headsets will be able to buy and play Oculus exclusive games.
Unsurprisingly, when the Revive project that unlocked Oculus VR’s Rift exclusivity was launched, the Facebook owned company updated its DRM to block its use. Even more unsurprising though, is that within days the Revive project is back and it’s already circumvented DRM protecting Unreal Engine titles.


The Revive software previously let you circumvent Oculus’ store lock-out for other headsets, letting HTC Vive users buy and play games on it. Now that Oculus has upped the ante though and made real efforts to block gamers with non-Rift headsets, the Revive project has had to do the same.
