Ubisoft has managed to protect Assassin's Creed Origins from pirates for an entire month



Back in October, Ubisoft released Assassin’s Creed: Origins which uses the latest version of the Denuvo anti-tamper tech. Not only that, but Ubisoft has protected Denuvo with VMProtect. The French company has put VMProtect on top of Denuvo. And while some may claim that this implementation is eating additional CPU cycles, Ubisoft has managed to protect its game from pirates for an entire month.

As we’ve already reported, Assassin’s Creed Origins scales well on more than four CPU cores. However, the in-game performance is similar on both quad-core and six-core CPUs. Moreover, there is no performance benefit when Hyper Threading is enabled, even though the game scales even on twelve CPU threads. On November 1st, Ubisoft claimed that the game’s protection system does not have any perceptible effect on performance.

This isn’t something new though. Watch_Dogs 2, another open-world game from Ubisoft, shows the exact same behaviour. However, and contrary to Origins, Watch_Dogs 2 does not use VMProtect over Denuvo; it only uses the Denuvo anti-tamper tech.

Now this is a big win for Ubisoft and Denuvo. However, this success is not entirely due to Ubisoft’s VMProtect + Denuvo combo. It appears that Denuvo has issued a new version of its anti-tamper tech; a version that has not been cracked yet by pirates.

Belgium says loot boxes are gambling, wants them banned in Europe

Belgium says loot boxes are gambling, wants them banned in Europe



Last week, Belgium's Gaming Commission announced that it had launched an investigation into whether the loot boxes available for purchase in games like Overwatch and Star Wars Battlefront 2 constitute a form of gambling. Today, VTM News reported that the ruling is in, and the answer is yes.

The Google translation is a little sloppy, as usual, but the message is clear enough. "The mixing of money and addiction is gambling," the Gaming Commission declared. Belgium's Minister of Justice Koen Geens also weighed in, saying, "Mixing gambling and gaming, especially at a young age, is dangerous for the mental health of the child."

Geens, according to the report, wants to ban in-game purchases outright (correction: if you don't know exactly what you're purchasing), and not just in Belgium: He said the process will take time, "because we have to go to Europe. We will certainly try to ban it."
