Release group CPY has announced it has cracked the anti-piracy system Denuvo in Metro Exodus. The game released last week but is not available on Steam.
According to the Denuvo website, the company's goal is to prevent game piracy in the first couple of weeks after the release of a title. It failed to reach that goal with Metro Exodus.
Last month, THQ Nordic subsidiary Deep Silver announced the game would be removed from Steam because it was able to negotiate an exclusivity deal with Epic Games. The game became an Epic Games Store exclusive title for a full year.
THQ Nordic later stated that its subsidiary Koch Media was the one to blame for the deal, noting that it still had intellectual property rights of the franchise.
In the game players flee the shattered ruins of dead Moscow and embark on an "epic, continent-spanning" journey across post-apocalyptic Russia.
Players will explore the Russian wilderness in "vast, non-linear levels" and follow a storyline that is inspired by the novels of Dmitry Glukhovsky that spans an entire year through spring, summer and autumn to the depths of nuclear winter.
Metro Exodus released on February 15, 2019, for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
