Assassin's Creed 2 PC version includes a new type of DRM

"3rd-party DRM: UBISOFT REQUIRES A PERMANENT HIGH SPEED INTERNET CONNECTION AND CREATION OF A UBISOFT ACCOUNT TO PLAY THIS VIDEO GAME AT ALL TIMES."


PC gamers are not happy:

It's also 10$ more expensive than most other PC titles.


Bummer. I was looking forward to this game.


Edit: Even Rockpapershotgun implores you to avoid the game: http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2010...geddon-part-2/

yeah the internet requirement is rather dissapointing, I might just end up buying this game on the PS3 afterall.

This is a pain in the ass for me.
I would've tried it out illegally at first, I guess it will be a non-buy then.

Its pretty bad that you need to be connected to the internet just to play the game. If someone wanted to play single player or any offline mode, they would still have to be connected to the internet to play. This is a bad move on Ubisoft part.

Won't be buying any Ubisoft games on any platform until they fix this. It's insulting.

I don't approve of this shenanery at all. I won't be paying them to punch me in the kidneys.

i really hate all this high end DRM. does anyone remember Starforce DRM? that one sucked big time. If flagged my copy of Prince of Persia: Two Throwns and repeatedly lock my pc. (I had an original disk and key) I got sick of it and sold the game to someone else. Ubisoft has a habit of going too far with their DRM. The rest s a rant for another time. :)

looks like piracy really got them angry.

Ooooooh! Aaaaaah!

Well, thankfully, I chose the 360 route for AC2.

Still, in terms of a PC, I can't think of too many reasons why would wouldn't be connected...
