Assassin’s Creed Origins is crippling gamers’ CPUs due to anti-piracy DRM

EARLY ADOPTERS of Assassin’s Creed Origins are have been discerning to blubber that a open universe diversion is regulating extreme CPU resources, and it’s suspicion that Ubisoft’s doing of piracy-thwarting DRM collection is to blame.

Over a weekend, gamers have taken to the Steam forums to bemoan about a CPU load, with one Assassin’s Creed actor stating a 100 per cent bucket on all 4 cores of his processor even when reduce graphics settings were used.

“It unequivocally doesn’t seem to matter what kind of GPU we are using,” another complained. “The opening issues many people here are angry about are tied to CPU removing maxed out 100 percent during all times. This formula in FPS [frames per second] drops and stutter. As distant as we know there is no workaround.”

As good as stutter, others have complained that this CPU overkill has caused their Windows PC to pile-up and, in some cases, arrangement a dreaded ‘Blue Screen of Death’ (BSOD) due to their machines overheating after usually an hour or two’s play.

While Ubisoft has nonetheless to residence a problems, or lapse INQ‘s ask for comment, TorrentFreak reports that a publisher’s extreme anti-piracy measures are to blame. 

The website spoke to ‘Volski’, a obvious diversion cracker, who after reviewing a formula of Assassin Creed Origins detected that Ubisoft has ‘doubled-up’ on DRM collection for a latest release.

As good as Denuvo, that TorrentFreak records is being distant by enormous groups “in a matter of days”, Ubisoft has also implemented VMProtect, a square of program that protects formula by executing it on a practical appurtenance with non-standard design that creates it intensely formidable crack. 

“Basically, Ubisoft have implemented VMProtect on tip of Denuvo, tanking a game’s opening by 30-40 per cent, perfectionist that people have a some-more costly CPU to play a diversion properly, usually given of a DRM. It’s anti-consumer and a outrageous move,” Volski said.

“It seems that Ubisoft motionless that Denuvo is not adequate to stop pirates in a essential initial days [after release] anymore, so they have implemented an iteration of VMProtect over it.

“This is good if we are looking to save your diversion from those pirates, though if we are a legit customer, well, it’s not that good for we given this combo could tank your opening by a lot, generally if we are regulating a low-mid operation CPU.”

We’ll refurbish this essay if we hear behind from Ubisoft. µ
