Assassin's Creed II to get a DRM fix

Posted on Thursday, March 04 2010 @ 18:13:55 CET by


The PC version of Assassin's Creed II has a very annoying DRM scheme that forces you to be online constantly when running the game. If your Internet connection happens to drop mid-game you can't continue, and reviewers of the game found out that the game didn't save progress and forced them to resume from the last save point. Fortunately, Ubisoft has rolled out a patch to resolve the issue, but that doesn't change the fact that we absolutely detest this kind of obnoxious DRM.
Available here at FileShack, the 18.6MB patch lets players resume "from the exact same point" if their Internet connection happens to drop mid-game.

That's the exact mechanism Ubisoft promised when announcing its new digital rights management scheme in January. However, reviewers found the release version of Assassin's Creed II PC booted players out and scrapped their progress when connection to Ubisoft's master servers was lost.

DRM HAS NO FUTURE. UBI SOFT WILL LOSE MUCH MORE. EVEN PEOPLE WHO BUY THE VIDEO GAMES DON'T WANT THAT. DRM IS WHAT WILL TAKE THEM TO THE OTHER SIDE - JUST LIKE CONSTANT CDROM PROTECTION IN THE OLDER DAYS IT WILL COLLAPSE UNDER THE SWORD OF FREEDOM MADE BY HACKERS... UBI SOFT.... YOU WAIT FOR IT. YOU ARE THE NUMBER ONE IN THAT LIST...
