First proper Denuvo crack for Rise of the Tomb Raider?

Posted on Tuesday, August 09 2016 @ 17:09:19 CEST by


A couple of days ago we reported about a crack for Doom's Denuvo copy protection. This anti-tamper protection is notoriously hard to crack so the discovery from cracker Voksi immediately became big news. However, it was not a proper crack but more of a bypass that relied on an exploit in Steam, it basically tricked the service into identifying pirated games as the Doom demo.

Once the bypass for Doom was published, the floodgates opened as the same exploit could be used for a variety of other games, including titles like Return of the Tomb Raider, Just Cause 3, Homefront: The Revolution, ABZU, INSIDE and Total War WARHAMMER.

Voksi estimates around 650,000 people used the bypass over the weekend, but the fun didn't last long. The Denuvo developer issued a patch on Monday that disabled activation for the Doom demo, which the bypass relied on, but now there's much bigger news as it seems there's a proper crack for Rise of the Tomb Raider.

TorrentFreak writes scene group CONSPIR4CY published a Rise of the Tomb Raider package that seems to contain a bona fide crack of Denuvo, which would make it the first cracked Denuvo game since Dragon Age: Inquisition in late 2014.
Thus far only Tomb Raider has fallen, and that was released in January this year, meaning that the title had more than six months clear run at piracy-free sales. That being said, no one knows when CONSPIR4CY began working on Denuvo.
There are not a lot of details available, and it will be interesting to see how Denuvo will try to defeat it.
