Bethesda has officially removed Denuvo from the Steam version of RAGE 2
Man, what a roller coaster this has been. While testing the review code, we’ve discovered that Avalanche has implemented the Denuvo anti-tamper tech in RAGE 2 (even though Bethesda hadn’t listed Denuvo on the game’s Steam store page). This, obviously, frustrated a lot of PC gamers who felt cheated by the publisher.
Not only that, but the Bethesda store version did not use this controversial anti-tamper tech, something that puzzled a lot of gamers. However, here we are today with Bethesda completely removing Denuvo from the Steam version too.
