Good riddance to bad rubbish.
Rage 2 update

Bethesda announced that a new update was released today for the Steam version of Rage 2. This update, among other things, removes the always dreaded Denuvo DRM.

Denuvo was included at the launch of the game on Steam, but was curiously missing from the Launcher version that came out at the same time. Fans were a bit curious (and upset) over this. The ongoing theory is that Denuvo was utilized on Steam to prevent Rage 2 from getting leaked early from those with access to the review build. Reviews of the PC version of Rage 2 were done through Steam and presumably done on a final or very near final build of the game. It just so happened that when the same build was then pushed to the public, it retained the added Denuvo.


Thankfully, today's update removed it from the game. The full list of changes in today's update can be found below.

Today, we will be deploying a minor PC hotfix very shortly that will address the following issues:
Removes Denuvo DRM (We saw a few requests.)
  • Enables Crash Reporter for error reporting
  • Fixes occasional crash related to Scaleform
  • Fixes occasional crash on startup
  • Fixes issue where users would always default to English
  • Razer Chroma effects enabled by default
We are continuing to review the Steam forums for player reported issues. If you are having any technical support issues, please be sure to submit a ticket to the Bethesda Customer Support team. We also suggest reviewing our FAQ for additional information.
