Fewer online checks for disc-based games on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.

Confirmed by Xbox engineering lead Eden Marie earlier today, since Xbox build 2208 (corrected by Marie), Microsoft has reduced the amount of DRM check-ins for Xbox One discs, although there may still be day-one update requirements particularly in scenarios where the full game isn't available on the disc itself. .

We examined data since Series X|S launch & determined the online compatibility check isn't needed in the vast majority of cases for Xbox One discs.

Some games may still need to be updated online after install to ensure the best experience.September 19, 2022.

PC-based DRM like Denuvo is known to reduce the performance of PC games, and naturally, online check-ins for games that aren't even online for their functionality is irritating in situations where you have reduced internet access. .

Games downloaded via subscription services like Xbox Game Pass will still require online access to verify that your subscription is active, of course, but for many Xbox One disc-based games, some of those DRM-related irritations are now reduced. .
