Last month, Bioware’s most anticipated title from the famous franchise, the Mass Effect Andromeda was released. The game was protected with the Denuvo anti-tamper tech, yet hackers managed to crack it in less than 10 days of its release.
However, developers have released a new update for the Mass Effect Andromeda earlier this week and according to the reports, the game is protected with the new version of Denuvo’s anti tamper technology. It appears that the retail version of the game was having an old version of the anti piracy tool, and maybe that’s why the hackers managed to crack it easily.
The Mass Effect Andromeda executive files have strings which are found in the games powered by the latest version of the Denuvo, which is not cracked yet by any hacking group. Some of new titles protected with latest Denuvo are Dead Rising 4 and Nier: Automata.
Despite all the gameplay mechanics, the game was heavily criticized for its awkward facial animation even before the worldwide release. Some internet bullies even harassed the alleged lead animator behind the game on social media, after which the producer had to issue a formal statement, referring her one of the former employees.
A comparison video of the new update was released, showing some improvements in the animations, still there’s more work left to complete.
Mass Effect Andromeda is now available for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Stay tuned for more updates!
