SOFTWARE & DRIVERS
RAGE 2’s Bethesda Store version does not use the Denuvo anti-tamper tech, has been cracked
A couple of days ago, we informed you about RAGE 2 using the Denuvo anti-tamper tech. Our findings were based on the Steam version and after we published our article, Bethesda confirmed the existence of Denuvo by updating the game’s Steam store page. However, it appears that its Bethesda Store version is – at least for now – Denuvo-free.
As many players have confirmed, the Bethesda Store version does not currently use the controversial anti-tamper tech. Not only that, but this particular version has already been cracked mainly due to the absence of the Denuvo DRM (our guess is that RAGE 2 uses the latest version of Denuvo which has not been cracked yet).
>> I guess the last part is about the Steam version, not the one that's been cracked.

>> It would make sense, and it would be about time too.
