Bethesda Softworks and MachineGames aren’t letting Electronic Arts climb the microtransaction mountain without a fight. The pair are working hard on that by issuing out a hotfix that stops people from using certain cheat engines to bypass Wolfenstein: Youngblood’s microtransactions on PC.
Youngblood has a lot of issues, and although some critics and fans say that the game’s SJW or feminist talking points aren’t that big of a problem, that’s inherently false. Given that Bethesda Softworks and MachineGames retconned B.J. Blazkowicz son Arthur Kenneth Blazkowicz and replaced him with two current year specimens is a direct social justice move.
You can even see the devs taking the liberty to stomp on Arthur Kenneth’s digital grave by having Jessica and Sophia Blazkowicz sarcastically refer to him:
When they say that a man is no longer the same after his adversaries take his son that couldn’t ring truer in low-T -B.J. Blazkowicz case, but I digress.
The topic at hand here is that website DSOG has found that Bethesda Softworks and MachineGames have stopped the action of cheat engines working in favor for those looking to get around Youngblood’s microtransaction implementation.
Yes, those looking to play the game solo with cheats can’t do so after the 160MB update went live, which fixes the microtransaction exploit:
“This first patch for Wolfenstein: Youngblood is 160MB in size, does not remove the Denuvo anti-tamper tech, and simply fixes the micro-transactions exploit that surfaced earlier last week (Bethesda has not provided any changelog or release notes so we can only assume that there aren’t any major fixes in this patch).”
The same sentiment on sub-reddit r/Games also bubbled up with a user going into detail how the patch fixes the microtransaction bypass.
So this update or hotfix makes sure that other pressing issues in the game stay intact without any improvements, but at the same time fixes a non-issue where people can bypass the act of going through the whole microtransaction loop. Well, Bethesda and crew know no limit to reaching new lows.
