Warner Bros. Montréal released a PC patch for Gotham Knights earlier this week that saw the removal of Denuvo, but it was an accident, according to a SteamDB update highlighted on reddit’s r/pcgaming that can confirm the anti-tamper technology has been added back to the superhero co-op title. The slip-up has prompted many to speculate that a pirated copy of Gotham Knights may be out sooner rather than later, while others fear that the new game could be a target for hackers. Gotham Knights released last Friday but has received disappointing reviews for reasons that include poor performance and a dull story, possibly stemming from the lack of Batman, who has been advertised as being dead in the game.

The official description for Gotham Knights:

Batman is dead. A new expansive, criminal underworld has swept the streets of Gotham City. It is now up to the Batman Family – Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood, and Robin – to protect Gotham, bring hope to its citizens, discipline to its cops, and fear to its criminals.

From solving mysteries that connect the darkest chapters in the city’s history to defeating notorious villains in epic confrontations.

Gotham Knights is an open-world, action RPG set in the most dynamic and interactive Gotham City yet. Patrol Gotham’s five distinct boroughs in solo or in co-op and drop in on criminal activity wherever you find it.

Your legacy begins now. Step into the Knight.
