    As the titles says, the game's implementation of Denuvo requires fma3 instructions to boot up and basically screwing a potentinal ton of users. MHW already launched on PC on China and there's ton of people reporting this problem.

    Thanks Denuvo.

    Mod Edit - Fix on the way, though not up in the west yet

    I'll give it a week until this Denuvo is cracked. Fuck Denuvo.

    Wait does that mean I can't buy/play this with my i5 2500K Sandy Bridge processor?

    This sucks and needs resolving ASAP.

    So now there's also a requirement not even for running the game, but for running the DRM attached to it?

    Wow, almost fucked me over with my 4790k.
    That is ridiculous considering its only 4 years old.

    Correct, unfortunately.

    You can't play.

    No.

    They need to fix this and I'd reckon they will given no CPUs behind Haswell/Broadwell or Piledriver have this instructions set that Denuvo requires.

    Resident Evil 7 was the same way at launch and later got patched to fix it.

    EDIT: That was for an earlier instruction. My mistake.

    The main guy who cracks Denuvo was arrested so it will probably take a lot longer than that.

    Tfw DRM has higher system requirements than the game itself.

    No it wasn't, that was for the ancient SSE 4.1 instruction set.

    So the game doesn't work on processors older than those listed in the minimum requirements? Wow, a shocker.

    Even more of a reason for Capcom to patch this out as soon as possible. What's laughable is that no one thought to mention this to potential buyers, let alone people buying keys who can't get refunds.

    With RE7 it was SSSE3 and SSE4.1 which is mostly lacking on AMD Phenoms.

    Also the culprit of Denuvo since many games using it also ran into the same issues but they got quickly fixed like MGSV or Dishonored 2.

    Then why the fuck is the i7 3770k the recommended cpu?

    This is indeed a BIG problem considering it's in the recommended specs.

    That was the game that needed the SSE 4 instructionset. Game worked fine except for ome part in the beginning.

    It says minimum (for Intel) is a CPU from Haswell so not really?

    Edit: I PLUCKED UP GUYS

    Actually, the game doesn't run on the recommended rig they posted on steam

    Then it says recommended CPU is before Haswell

    6 month delay, no additional PC features, no content updates at launch, and now this.

    Hmm, maybe I was wrong about Yakuza's boot issues not being caused by missing instructions. Seriously, what kind of shit is this that people are being blocked from playing games they should be capable of because of crappy DRM.

    B-but Denuvo has no impact on how a game runs! The corporate ball-washers told me so themselves!
