Denuvo revealed another update to its anti-piracy protection at Gamescom. One of the new features is called Unreal Engine Protection, which lets teams and individuals protect games built using Unreal Engine from manipulation.
The new feature is said to secure game files in Unreal Engine from decryption and block user access to the developer console. Irdeto states the new feature prevents data mining attempts and creates barriers against cheat creators, pirates, and fraudsters. The new update will protect "game data files against decryption, block the use of in-game debug consoles, and conceal entry points to deter game modification"
"With the Unreal Engine Protection, we are creating new weapons for the gaming industry’s fight against hackers trying to do things with games that are not supposed to be done," said Doug Lowther, Chief Executive Officer at Irdeto. "Our commitment to staying ahead of the curve in gaming security is exemplified by this first-to-market solution, enabling game developers and publishers to protect their creations with unparalleled ease."
