PC Assassin's Creed: Revelations Won't Need Internet Connection

Assassin's Creed 2 and Brotherhood on the PC were pretty notorious for their DRM on the PC. Both games required that you be constantly connected online to play them, Even in the single player. This meant that you can't play if your internet connection goes don't or if you're trying to play on a laptop while on a journey.

Obviously this DRM scheme got many people angry when it was first announced, but it wasn't enough to stop Ubisoft from implementing it in Brotherhood one year later. However, it looks like They have finally been convinced that this DRM method is completely stupid, Rock-Paper-Shotgun reports that Ubisoft has confirmed that Assassin's Creed: Revelations, while delayed on PC, will not have the always on DRM that plagued that last two games.

While I wasn't really planning on getting AC:Rev on PC, i'm really happy to hear this news. I found the previous DRM to be intrusive and outright stupid. Not only that, but is was cracked within days of the game being released, so pirates were able to circumvent this DRM and enjoy the game offline. Hopefully, this means Ubisoft has something good in the works in regards to DRM, I can't really see how they can do worse than forcing internet on a single player game.
