Gotham Knights has temporarily lost its anti-hacking software on PC after its developer released a new patch.
As seen by Eurogamer (opens in a new tab)following the Gotham Knights A PC patch from earlier this week, developer Warner Bros. Montreal accidentally removed Denuvo (the game’s anti-piracy software) from the PC version of the game. Like SteamDB (opens in a new tab) currently shows, however, it seems as if this was later added back. But this means that, for a short time, Gotham Knights was susceptible to hackers.
It’s currently unclear how this will affect the game long-term – although there’s already talk of a cracked peer-to-peer build of the Deluxe Edition circulating – but it does mean that some people out there have. probably secured a pirated copy of the game. Granted, it’s not like they pulled off the steal of the century, as any illegally obtained version of the game won’t get the same patches or updates that the regular version will in the future. It probably won’t allow the people using it to access multiplayer mode – which is a pretty big part of the game – either.
As for what this update did to really help Gotham Knights, you can read the full patch notes here (opens in a new tab). Basically, it made some general changes like fixes to various “UI issues”, “localization fixes”, “keyboard/mouse specific input issues”, and more. It also fixed an issue that prevented players from being able to join friends through invitations, and improved the game’s stability by addressing some crashes.
Gotham Knights gets a free 4-player co-op mode next month The even better news is that it will come in the form of a free update for everyone who already owns the game. The online-only mode, titled ‘Hero Assault’, is completely separate from the main campaign and is set to launch on November 29.
