Tales of Berseria is an addictive game that lets you immerse in a world ruled by revenge. In it, you’ll follow the story of Velvet, a young woman guided by anger and hatred, seeking revenge for the traumatic events that took place three years prior to the events of the game.

Tales of Berseria is going to launch in just a few hours, but many players feel discouraged to buy it. The reason: The game supports Denuvo. This is not the first time gamers have rejected a Denuvo game: Dishonored 2 and Watch Dogs 2 fans also expressed the same intention when devs gave them the news.

Tales of Berseria’s Denuvo support puts off players

Players suggest that Denuvo could potentially cause problems such as hardware damage or game lag due to the time required to ask permission from Denuvo’s servers.

Other players worry that if Denuvo shuts down its servers, they won’t be able to access their favorite games. They think that the best solution is to use Denuvo as a short-term DRM solution. Devs should use it during the first 1-2 years of the game’s life and then removed to make sure that Tales of Berseria will be around for generations to come.

On the other hand, Bandai Namco explains that Denuvo support is a guarantee of the company’s commitment to its fans and ensures them that the tool won’t affect their gaming experience in any way.

We love the community: it is you guys that ensure that we continually bring more Tales games out, and to a high caliber. It wouldn’t be fair to you if we didn’t put any systems in place to prevent people who try to acquire the game through illegitimate means as it eventually will slow us down bringing games onto PC. Denuvo has been proven to be a reliable way to fight piracy. So far, no conclusive evidence is proven to disrupt the player experience.

Are you planning to buy Tales of Berseria once it’s out? If not, has Denuvo played an important role in your decision making process?
