How to Play  Devil May Cry 5 Without Denuvo

Denuvo free DMC 5! About 20 FPS improvement for me.

Purpose of this guide

The purpose of this guide is to make Devil May Cry 5 players who purchased on Steam have a better gaming experience without being disgusted by Denuvo.

I don’t support or encourage any piracy, so this guide will NOT provide any cloud disk, all the required files can be downloaded from Steam.

As long as you purchased Devil May Cry 5, you can follow this guide to play DMC 5 without Denuvo.

What happened?

The Denuvo free file was not cracked by anyone, but is provided by Capcom. :O

It should be related to the QA’s team.

A few hours after the game was released, there was a public branch on Steam, which was used by the QA team to ensure the game quality. (guess from the branch name)

This branch is not encrypted by Denuvo. Reasonably speaking, this branch should not be public.

Because the visibility of branch was public, the Denuvo free file we have.

Hours later, Capcom deleted this branch:

However, we still can download the Denuvo free file through Steam console.

Denuvo VS. Denuvo free

Files diff:

They’re all signed by Capcom, so nobody can modify these files.

Performance diff:


Denuvo Free:

FPS from 74 to 93, about 20 FPS improvement and more stable.

The data above was tested in the author’s computer environment.
