Lies of P Removes Denuvo DRM on Steam

The Steam version of Lies of P, the Soulslike action-RPG from Round8 Studio and Neowiz, has removed its Denuvo anti-tamper DRM software. The controversial software has been a touchy subject for most players, especially after discovering that it could potentially tank the performance of your PC when it installs unwanted software alongside the game as well as put your privacy at risk. However, PC players will be glad to know that Lies of P will no longer have that issue on Steam.

As reported by Exputer, a quick look at the update history of Lies of P via SteamDB reveals that it has completely removed the Denuvo anti-tamper DRM software. Denuvo was quietly added to Lies of P shortly before the game’s release last year, causing plenty of outrage from players and understandably so. Perhaps the outrage got loud enough that Round8 and Neowiz could no longer ignore the backlash.

Lies of P has a bright future ahead. The game is currently giving away Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty collaboration items, including weapons and gear, for free. Neowiz also revealed that some story DLC and a potential sequel could already be in the works.

While Lies of P PC players might’ve come out victorious in the fight against unwanted software, the same can’t be said about Capcom which recently began doubling down on its own anti-mod DRM called Enigma Protector. As a result, older games such as Resident Evil Revelations can no longer support mods, even for offline single-player only titles. Reports suggest that the anti-mod software was also quietly added to Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, Resident Evil Village, Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite, Street Fighter 5 and many others.

Capcom took a strong stance against the use of mods in its games after an incident involving a nude Chun-Li mod that accidentally appeared during a livestreamed Street Fighter 6 tournament.

Lies of P is available for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
