Resident Evil Village Steam Version Has Removed Denuvo DRM

Capcom’s survival horror title has removed the third party anti-tamper software on Steam, it’s been confirmed.

Capcom is riding high on the success of the recently-released remake of Resident Evil 4 right now, but those who’re looking to dive into the series’ previous offering on PC but have been put off until by now due to its implementation of Denuvo DRM will now be able to do so.

As confirmed via the game’s SteamDB page, Capcom has removed the implementation of third party anti-tamper software Denuvo DRM from Resident Evil Village on Steam. The software has traditionally been a controversial one among PC audiences, and specifically where RE Village is concerned, it was reported to affect the game’s performance and frame rates, so its removal should come as welcome news to those hoping to play the game.

As of December 31, Resident Evil Village has sold 7.4 million units worldwide across all platforms. In our review of the game upon its launch, we awarded it a score of 9/10, saying, “Resident Evil Village expertly combines tense horror, thrilling action, engaging exploration, and compelling storytelling in a single sublime experience, delivering one of the best games in the history of Capcom’s beloved survival horror franchise.” Read the full review through here.
