The players of Assassins Creed Origins are experiencing issues with the game's CPU usage. Although the game is known for using too many of the computer's resources, cracker Voksi reports that what is really to blame is the development and distribution company's efforts to protect against piracy.
"It is an anti-consumer and disgusting move."
There is a war on the Internet. On one side are game companies, publishers and Companies protection against piracy, and on the other hand, people who for different reasons want to play or try games for free.
Even though the two teams are free to fight in any way they choose, there are collateral casualties as well. Those who pay for their games are in just as much trouble as those who use cracked software.
In the last few days, some of his players Assassin's Creed Origins they reported too many problems playing the game.
"What is the normal CPU usage for this game?" asks an Assassins Creed Origins user on Steam forums. "I have between 60% and 90% and I wonder if the percentage is very high or not."
This particular user reports that he uses an i7 processor, which is very powerful. However, for those running a CPU with less oomph, things are even worse.
Another gamer, with an i5 processor, reported a 100% workload on all four cores of his processor, even when he chose lower settings graphics in an effort to free up resources.
What could be causing these problems? Bad computer settings? Poor coding? Probably not…
According to Voksi, whose team "Revolt" broke Wolfenstein II: The whole problem is directly linked to the desperate anti-piracy measures the company has taken.
Όπως αναφέραμε σε προηγούμενες δημοσιεύσεις η τεχνολογία κατά της πειρατείας της Denuvo έχει παραβιαστεί από τους crackers. Διάφορα release groups σπάνε την προστασία λίγες ώρες μετά την κυκλοφορία του παιχνιδιού, καθιστώντας το κλείδωμα του λογισμικού σχεδόν άσκοπο. Ωστόσο, στο Assassin's Creed Origins, η Ubisoft αποφάσισε να διπλασιάσει την ασφάλεια ανέφερε ο Voksi στο Torrentfreak.
"Basically, Ubisoft has implemented VMProtect over Denuvo protection, raising the game's resource requirement by 30-40%. This requires an expensive processor just because of DRM. ” "It's an anti-consumer and disgusting move."
