Question Far Cry 5

So it appears that even the single player mode for this game REQUIRES that freaking EAC crap to run the game properly.

Any of the bypass options/hacks are not working, anybody else have this game and have tried to bypass this stupid thing ?

It's Ubi, if they have a fetish to install some junk on your system you're going to have to eat it.

I didn't notice anything special when playing the game, it's completely invisible. And now that I uninstalled the game the EAC service is also gone so at least that's something...

Ah, I wonder if it's the service, I think I blacklisted it all just because I didn't want that crapware installed

Seeing as you own the original, get the CPY rls! No uPlay, No VMP, No EAC and no Denuvo! That's 4 layers of DRM FFS, no wonder the CPY rls runs much better!

Thats the thing, none of the so-called bypasses work so I'm wondering if the service had to be reinstalled ?
