Over the last few years, Ubisoft has managed to establish an unfortunate reputation in regards to Digital Rights Management. At their respective launches, games such as Driver: San Francisco, Assassin’s Creed 2, and Splinter Cell: Conviction required a constant internet connection on PC.
While Assassin’s Creed: Revelations has been slightly delayed to November 29 on the PC, it’s not all bad news for those who would rather play it on a computer as opposed to consoles. Earlier today, Ubisoft confirmed that Assassin’s Creed: Revelations will not require a persistent connection to the internet in order to play. Instead, the upcoming title will simply require a one-time online activation after being installed.
Of course, after the recent controversy surrounding the release of From Dust on PC, it’s understandable that fans would have a difficult time trusting what Ubisoft says.
