So Ubisoft put another DRM on top of Denuvo-it implements a virtual machine called VMProtect, and executes code in a non-standard architecture virtual machine, which is very difficult to crack. In other words, the game's high CPU usage is due to its dual DRM protection mechanism.
If the player purchased the game on Steam, this means that 4 DRM will be used during the game-Steam, Uplay, VMProtect and Denuvo. Such crazy DRM protection will undoubtedly affect the performance of the game. Jim Killock of the Open Rights Group believes Ubisoft should refund players.
