Pirates crack Fallout 3 (English) DRM

Posted by TEAM FILEnetworks | 10/28/2008 | | 1 Comments »

Pirates have cracked the SecuROM DRM that comes embedded with North American version of highly anticipated Fallout 3. Fallout 3 used a somewhat less intrusive version of SecuROM, a DRM system that has been highly criticized by gamers across the world. Fallout 3 however does not use the controversial and restrictive version of SecuROM which requires online activation. Instead, it uses a version of SecuROM which is bundled with the game’s installer and which only has a DVD check.

Group responsible for cracking SecuROM in Fallout 3 are once again RELOADED who have cracked several other SecuROM protected games released this month. Fallout 3 was susceptible for leaks from the beginning and the XBOX360 version of the game got leaked some 2 weeks before street date. DVD Images (Clone DVDs) of the PC Version got leaked several days before official release as well. The size of RELOADED’s release is around 5.5GB, which is around 2.5GB smaller than the Russian/English Clone (7.9GB) leaked earlier.

Fallout 3 definitely looks like one of the best games to be released in 2008 (if the reviews I read about this game are not lies that is). I’ve never seen an IGN review speak so positively about a game in quite a while. Currently the game has aggregated scores of 92% (XBOX360), 90% (PC) and 89% (PS3) on Gamerankings. 


Developer Description

Vault 101 - Jewel of the Wastes. For 200 years, Vault 101 has faithfully served the surviving residents of Washington DC and its environs, now known as the Capital Wasteland. Though the global atomic war of 2077 left the US all but destroyed, the residents of Vault 101 enjoy a life free from the constant stress of the outside world. Giant Insects, Raiders, Slavers, and yes, even Super Mutants are all no match for superior Vault-Tec engineering. Yet one fateful morning, you awake to find that your father has defied the Overseer and left the comfort and security afforded by Vault 101 for reasons
unknown. Leaving the only home youve ever known, you emerge from the Vault into the harsh Wasteland sun to search for your father, and the truth.

    If Fallout 3 crashes at start screen, try uninstalling FFDShows codecs (or add fallout 3 exe to ignore list in codec config).
