Mass Effect: Andromeda’s Denuvo DRM Cracked By CPY
Mass Effect Andromeda Cracked
(Last Updated On: April 5, 2017)

The torrent file for BioWare and Electronic Arts’ Mass Effect: Andromeda has made its way onto the interwebs. The game has officially been cracked by the CPY scene group, making their feat feasible within the span of just 10 days.

DSO Gaming caught wind of the news and did a quick report about how Denuvo is consistently being cracked a lot quicker than it used to. Resident Evil 7 was reportedly cracked within five days of its launch. It took CPY 10 days with Mass Effect: Andromeda.

If you search through the usual places, you’ll find that there’s now a 51GB cracked version of the sci-fi space epic floating around the torrent scene. As you can see in the detailed image below of the torrent file, the game was only just recently cracked as of today, April 4th, 2017.

The file is still slowly seeding its way through the network, so it’ll be a while before people are regularly downloading and sharing the game. That’s not to mention that 51GB is no laughing matter.

This news is definitely going to be a huge blow to the potential PC sales of Mass Effect: Andromeda especially given that a lot of people have been completely disenfranchised due to the poor quality of the game’s graphical design for the characters and dialogue, as well as the passe story and the limited character creation. Many more people were rather peeved at the identity politics and SJW influences that managed to find their way into the game.

Now PC gamers will be able to get their hands on it without paying a dime for it.

A rival scene group, 3DM, had previously mentioned that they were considering taking a year off from cracking games due to Denuvo, but it looks like crackers in the torrent scene are now reinvigorated and back to doing what they do best now that they’ve figured out Denuvo’s weakness.

If the launch day sales for Mass Effect: Andromeda weren’t impressive, this is only going to be an extra nail in the coffin for both BioWare and EA.

    This is bad, really bad, now more people will be exposed to this shit…

    It is tiring that in 2017 you so called Journos still seem to make the Torrent file sharing platform the scapegoat. It shows your incompetence to cover such matters properly.

    There are a varied number of methods and ways piracy is distributed but somehow, TORRENTING is always the sole one mentioned when the subject matter is piracy, as though to imply that is the only way piracy is conducted. Yes! It may be the most basic and linear choice, that doesn’t mean you can’t at least try to do some actual reporting.

    • I don’t actually understand your complaint? Are you saying we should be promoting usenet or darknet alternatives? Such a strange comment.

      Torrents are an easy way to check if something is available to be pirated. We’re not here trying to tell you where to go download the file or offer download links. The article is just about the availability of said torrents now that Denuvo has been cracked.

      • Cecrellne

        Thanks for the response and sorry for the ambiguity, given you misunderstood my comment.

        To clarify, No! I’m neither encouraging nor saying you should be promoting other piracy alternatives, that’s wrong plain and simple.

        What I was trying to say was, take for instance the source/reference for the story [DSO Gaming] the article just said the title was cracked. Why can’t you and others follow in that some what direction? Hence my first comment.

        I am fully aware of the ease of torrents as a piracy medium, as I initially said, to which you buttressed that same point. That does mean that every time piracy is the subject topic, Torrents gets to be AUTOMATIC target, and in some way sort of reinforces the notion as though torrenting is the only and primary form of piracy.

    You know, I’ve never pirated a game in my life… But the prospect of gleaming even an iota of pleasure from this game, which SJWs slaved away at for years, and to give them nothing for it… Well, I just may change my stance on piracy.

    • which SJWs slaved away at for years

      That’s giving SJWs too much credit.

      More like they infiltrated, took over and forced existing developers to push their ideology.

      • Raging Papist

        Oh, absolutely. Bioware is converged and we all know how it happened. But I love the stories of Bioware devs that talk about how overworked and mistreated they are by EA. I say “good… and now Im gonna take the product and not pay you, because you allowed this to happen.”

  • Hunter

    First, I couldn´t care less for Mass Effect 3 but i love to see Denuvo fail why?? because it treats users like thief’s period. Protections are useless for how much time are we going to argue about this lie?? how many copies does The Witcher 3 needs to sell before we understand that quality beats piracy??? and this article is full of crap CPY NEVER said anything of taking a year off due to Denuvo those were a chinesse group called 3DM who is not even considered a real Scene group. Just check the numbers in steam spy , how many copies did Just Cause 3 sold?? a little bit more than a million and it was uncracked for almost a year and a half…… the witcher has sold 5 times that and without protection, how is that possible with the “evil” pirates?? if EA dies and god i wish that ever happens is because for their greedy practices, and lack of quality in their games, the worst thing that could happen to Bioware was to be bought by EA. That would be the real nail in their coffin.

    • and this article is full of crap CPY NEVER said anything of taking a year off due to Denuvo those were a chinesse group called 3DM

      Sorry, I got my Chinese piracy groups mixed up.

      *Fixed.

        CONSPIRACY is Italian, not Chinese.

        • Sorry I got my Eastern hemisphere piracy groups mixed up.

          They should also really consider changing their name because it looks like an acronym for “Chinese Piracy”.

            How dare you!

    • Disqusted

      I wish GameGuard would go under. That thing is the biggest pile of shit.

      • Socius

        I wish asians would stop existing.

  • Salt Miner

    They shouldn’t even have bothered. I mean, seriously.

    • Disqusted

      I think it’s great that they are preserving Mass Effect Androgyna in its near-original trashy state, for people with good taste to laugh at for years to come, and for desperate consumer fanboys to blindly worship as being “pretty fantastic”.

    Even free, Still wouldn’t get it.

      Possibly accurate depiction of the devs.
