Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood without Ubisoft’s always-on DRM

By on February 22, 2011

While we were testing the PC preview code of Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, we were wondering how we were able to play it since we were not connected to the internet. Ubisoft’s always-on DRM was nowhere to be found. Then there was the game’s Steam page that did not include Ubisoft’s DRM. Could it be a game without that controversial method?

And here we are today, with an Ubisoft representative confirming that Ubisoft’s always-on DRM won’t be present. As it was revealed some days ago, Ubisoft decided to abandon the always-on DRM from most of their games. As a result of this and much like most games nowadays, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood will just need an initial login at the start and then it will be fully playable offline. In order to play of course the multiplayer mode, you’ll have to be online. Kudos to Ubisoft!
