Hallelujah! Ubisoft were one of the last few companies taking a stand against piracy with everything they had, implementing “always-on” DRM and “one time activation” for their games. However, with Assassin’s Creed III right around the corner, the company has done a total 180 regarding and issued a statement to Rock Paper Shotgun.
Stephanie Perlotti, director of Ubisoft’s online games, issued the following statement:
“We have listened to feedback, and since June last year our policy for all of PC games is that we only require a one-time online activation when you first install the game, and from then you are free to play the game offline.”
“Whenever you want to reach any online service, multiplayer, you will have to be connected, and obviously for online games you will also need to be online to play. But if you want to enjoy Assassin’s Creed III single player, you will be able to do that without being connected. And you will be able to activate the game on as many machines as you want.”
Thanks, Ubisoft! I knew you all had it in you. <3
