Metro Exodus is a first-person shooter from publisher Deep Silver. The title is available on Xbox Game Pass, but the PC version got a new "feature" today. According to a report by PC Gamer, the game is removing Denuvo digital rights management (DRM) with the latest update.
The patch notes simply said, "Removed Denuvo from Steam, Epic, Xbox PC Gamepass versions." Many PC gamers will be happy with this because there are reports that Denuvo DRM has caused performance issues in the past.
