Pirates come up with Resident Evil Village PC performance fix


By Ray Ampoloquio July 13, 2021

Resident Evil Village has been a huge success so far.

It's well on its way to becoming the best-selling Resident Evil game of all time.

What is most surprising about this is that Village continues to rack up sales, despite having problems on the PC.

Denuvo is used by developers to prevent their games from being tampered with and made available for free on the PC.

While the intention of Denuvo is all well and good as it protects studios and their investments, it often comes at the expense of poor performance.

In the case of Resident Evil Village, the antipiracy measure is causing the game to freeze or stutter if not crash entirely.

After Village was released on May 7, 2021, it wasn't until this past weekend that the cracked version of the game became available.

The release makes Village available for free to everyone.

It's not unusual for companies to release Denuvo-free versions of their PC games after some time has passed.

In the case of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, the update probably didn't come until December 12, 2017.

For Resident Evil Village, don't expect this update to arrive until the first DLC comes months from now. 

If nothing else, we should be happy that the PC port of Resident Evil Village isn't as bad as these PC ports.
