Assassin’s Creed Mirage PC Gets Denuvo in Day One Patch

The PC version suffers from stuttering and slowdowns with this technology installed.

New reports from various users have revealed that Ubisoft has added the controversial Denuvo anti-tamper technology to Assassin’s Creed Mirage PC.

Numerous reports online have confirmed that Ubisoft has added the Denuvo anti-tamper technology to the PC version of Assassin’s Creed Mirage with the day one patch. Denuvo has been criticized for a long time now due to its side effects when installed in games.

While Denuvo works perfectly in preventing outside elements to “steal” the game via piracy, it sometimes has side effects when it gets installed in a game. Many players believe that it has an adverse effect on PC game performance and this has been proven numerous times already with previous games like Resident Evil Village and more. Whenever a developer announces that the game has Denuvo protection installed, it is quickly frowned upon by the community.

One of the users who discovered the feature on AC Mirage showed on Twitter a screenshot of an End User License Agreement or EULA for Denuvo which showed up after installing the day one patch. He was not pleased with the addition and has reported that there have been stutterings in several cutscenes.

Other websites revealed that before and after the patch, the game still had stuttering issues and they knew that the game had Denuvo all along. It seems it just got worse with the day one patch.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage is now available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
