Lies Of P Has Gotten Rid Of Denuvo Anti-Tamper On Steam

A recent edit in the changelog has confirmed.

Story Highlights

  • Lies of P is a 2023-released Soulslike RPG that came out for multiple platforms back in September.
  • Almost five months into launch, the game has now removed Denuvo anti-tamper from Steam. 
  • The Denuvo anti-tamper DRM software remains a controversial program in the realm of PC gaming. 

Lies of P is a personal favorite of mine, and objectively one of the best Soulslikes that have come out in 2023, taking straight inspiration from the legend that is Bloodborne but painting all that in its unique fashion. A recent discovery pertaining to the title (thanks to SteamDB) has made it clear that the Denuvo anti-tamper DRM software isn’t a part of Lies of P’s Steam version anymore. Feel free to take a peak yourself.

For those who missed it, Lies of P developers, Round8 Studio, and Neowiz Games, quietly added Denuvo to the title on PC just a couple of days before its imminent release, sparking outrage among fans and followers. You could easily tell how upset the PC gaming community was upon hearing the news of it back then, but apparently, a major change on that front is now in motion, though five months into the title’s release. 

What Is Denuvo Anti-Tamper And Why Do PC Gamers Hate It? 

So, what is the big deal with Denuvo anti-tamper anyway? Why do PC players sigh in disgust at the sight of it? I’ll tell you why. The game’s that mention, especially on Steam, that they come with Denuvo anti-tamper incorporated, practically indicate that a separate software will be installed on your PC alongside the game’s installation.

Now this program has been known to cause PC performance issues in the past, along with the vulnerability of having your privacy at risk. It’s some of these reasons that make Denuvo an outright hated platform for PC players across the board, although what it’s really for, or at least should be for, is protecting PC games from getting pirated.
