What A Way To Start The Year: 2020 Messes Up Two Games [VIDEO]

One of them ran into issues thanks to its DRM, the other one got problematic thanks to its incompetent developers…

Let’s start with the former – thanks to Denuvo, Electronic Arts‘ highly popular game, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order doesn’t launch on PC. (Yet, we showed the publisher that despite them forcing live service games and monetization everywhere, like in Anthem or any EA Sports title, there is a demand for single-player games…) If you fire it up, regardless if you do so from Steam or Origin (you need the latter regardless even via Steam), you get dumped to your desktop in no time. The solution is similarly a joke: you have to set your clock back to 2019 or to December 31, as 2020 brought Denuvo the Y2K, or maybe it’s the Y2KXX?

The other game that launched in a terrible state (as the longtime developer has quit the series to work on something else): it’s WWE 2K20, started by Japanese studio Yuke’s, and finished by NBA 2K-developer (they made NBA 2K20’s MyTeam mode infamous in the Summer for the slot machine and gambling trailer…) Visual Concepts. Multiple publications, including VGC, wrote about how the wrestling game gave up the ghost with the new year on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The solution here was once again setting the clock back to 2019. However, 2K Support (Take-Two’s 2K label’s customer support) wrote on Twitter that they have addressed the issue, and you can now play the game after restarting it and applying the patch. Still, we embed a video that showcases the issue.

Remember, this is only the second day of the year, and we already get unpleasant moments. Yesterday, Sony pulled off one by revealing the January PlayStation Plus line-up prematurely…
