Ubisoft does away with “always-on” DRM and trying to get on a schedule.


So a lot of news I will be putting out today to make up for what was missed yesterday. Wife is doing a sub-teacher course and was the first in a while that the kids and I have been alone without her here all day in quite some time so was readjusting. Anyway let’s get on with what is going on in the gaming world.


Ubisoft doing away with “always-on” DRM 

So low and behold Ubisoft is getting rid of always-on digital rights management (DRM) policy, Stephanie Perotti Ubisoft’s worldwide director for online games told Rock, Paper, Shotgun in an interview.

The policy dictated that anyone playing Ubisoft’s PC titles would have needed to maintain a constant internet connection even while playing single-player campaigns. According to Perotti , Ubisoft games will now require “a one-time activation when you first install the game, and from then on you are free to play the game offline.” Perotti stated that this has been Ubisoft’s policy since June of 2011.

So what do you guys think? Is this a good sign of things to come or will Ubisoft later on negate this considering they have always complained about their games being pirated. Let me know your opinions on this.
