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