Assassin’s Creed 2 PC DRM Issues

Everyone is up in arms again after the public found out that Ubisoft hasn’t fixed the DRM issues fro the first Assassin’s Creed. Apparently if you play AC2 on PC, you must have an internet connection – otherwise it will not let you play the game. This is something Ubisoft set up to prevent piracy and verify that every game that is being played is unique to a specific computer. No more copying CD keys, etc.

Dark Boa from GrabGeekPoints.com says:

So, it seems that Ubisoft’s new way of stopping piracy is to anger all of their PC gamers. If you do not have an internet connection you can NOT play any new Ubisoft title on the PC. Which yes, includes Assassin’s Creed 2. If you attempt to play Assassin’s Creed 2 PC without internet you will be booted off until you can connect. The only other option I guess would be to buy a console that lets you have offline play… Bad move Ubi!

Now, most people do have an internet connection these days – especially if you can afford to drop $49 for a game. The issue I see that comes into play is what if you install the game on a laptop and want to take the laptop on vacation or to the local coffee shop to play… you just won’t be able to.

Assassin’s Creed 2 on PC will be released on March 16, 2010.

  4. It is well known that cash makes us disembarrass. But how to act when somebody does not have cash? The one way is to try to get the home loans or just short term loan.
