Devil may cry 5 was the first game from Capcom which included a multiplayer mode in a single-player game. Online players could play multiplayer in real-time or through a guest appearance and gameplay recordings. Denuvo was introduced for the purpose of preventing someone from cheating or tampering the game.

Soon after the update scene group, CODEX released the cracked version of the game:
