Rejoice! Assassin’s Creed: Revelations Will Not Feature ‘Always Online’ DRM

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.

    Until the game's released I'm not believing anything Ubisoft says.
