Ubisoft Renounce Alway-on DRM, PC Titles Now Playable Offline


Ubisoft have given up on an always-on DRM which forced PC players to stay connected to the internet whilst playing Ubisoft games.

The decision was apparently made in June with games now only requiring a single online activation.

The always-on system was famed for its inconvenience to PC gamers with connection drops resulting in lost progress. Furthermore the system did not succeed in stoping piracy, with pirates finding ways around the system to illegally copy and distribute games.

There has also been a suggestion that future Ubisoft PC titles will be released closer to their console counterparts.

So there you have it, Ubisoft attempting to repair bridges with the PC community, which can only be a good thing for the publisher and gamers alike.
