Ghostwire: Tokyo has been graced with a free DLC update named “Spider’s Thread” that has brought with it an array of new story-driven missions, as well as a range of combat abilities, and other features that improve the quality of life. However, the PC version of the update has delivered an unwelcome surprise – the addition of the much-maligned Denuvo anti-piracy software, an unforeseen move that has caused a great deal of bemusement and animosity from the PC gaming populace.

If you’re not in the know, Denuvo is a DRM technology that purports to shield against unauthorized access to games. Unfortunately, the system has a reputation for diminishing the gaming experience and, in particular, hampering frame rates, which has made it quite unpopular with PC gaming aficionados who shell out big bucks for their hardware. It’s highly irregular for a developer to integrate Denuvo into a title a year after its release, which only amplifies the mystery.

Denuvo has been the talk of the town these days, especially with the highly-anticipated vampire shooter Redfall set to deploy the software on PC. Unsurprisingly, Capcom made the call to strip Denuvo from Resident Evil Village without much fanfare, owing to its negative reception for causing huge performance issues upon release. In contrast, the recently launched Resident Evil 4 is still employing Denuvo.
