Ubisoft has confirmed that the PC-version of Assassins Creed: Brotherhood will not make use of the controversial DRM system that was introduced last year. The system required players to remain in contact with a Ubisoft server while playing games, making it impossible to play these games if a connection was interupted, or could not be established.
Players will still be required to verify the authenticity of their title when launching, but will be able to continue playing even if their connection to the server is terminated after the authentication process has been completed. In the past, Ubisoft games would either save the current state of the game and allowed players to continue from this point when connection was reestablished, or forced players to revert to a recent autosave if connected was interrupted.
Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood will launch for PC on March 17 in North America, and March 18 in Europe.
