Because of course it does.
In keeping with the tradition of mot high profile PC releases employing it, the PC version of the upcoming Far Cry 5 will use Denuvo Anti Tamper. The highly controversial DRM solution’s effectiveness remains up in the air, but for now, several companies, including Ubisoft (who previously used it in Assassin’s Creed Origins as well) continue to abide by it.
This news comes to us courtesy of DSO Gaming, who discovered this by scouring the PC version’s EULA- you can actually go and check it out for yourself here. Incredibly enough, the agreement seems to imply that there will be additional DRM on the game apart from Denuvo. Overkill there, Ubisoft? Then again, we shouldn’t be surprised, since they did this exact thing with Origins too.
Far Cry 5 is due to launch on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC in March. It will be the first game in the series to be based in the US.
