Persona 4 Goldenis the first Persona title to come out on PC. It is considered one of the best J-RPGs of all time, and it’s published by SEGA on PC. The game was surprisingly ported by ATLUS, and here’s hoping we get other titles on PC as well. However, now with Persona 4 Golden cracked, it’s another title that’s no longer protected by Denuvo.
TheNerdMag does not support or advocate piracy in any way, though we do hold questionable views regarding DRM, so while we are sharing news regarding cracking, this in no way means we use or advertise said cracks. We urge fans to continue supporting developers that are bringing them titles to PC.
The Denuvo free build of Persona 4 Golden was released online, and it isn’t done by a specific scene group. According to the post on Reddit. the size of the executable has been reduced from 124MB to just 7MB. The inflated size of game executables is usually because of DRM protection.
This is one of the more unusual instances of a game being cracked because this is just a Denuvo free build of the title. It isn’t claimed by any scene group like CODEX, that has been notorious for cracking Denuvo protected titles.
Denuvo vs Piracy
Denuvo’s fight with piracy has been something amazing to witness. Scene groups have managed to crack games literally 3 days from release with titles like Hitman 2. However, at times pirates had to wait months and months for their favorite games to be available on torrent sites.
Various scene groups have joined hands in the fight against Denuvo. New groups like FCKDRM are consistently working on new ways to counter Denuvo.
Many games over the past few months have shown that performance without Denuvo has actually been better. This has been the case in DMC 5 and RE 2.
