Ubisoft to remove their invasive always-online DRM requirement from From Dust

Ubisoft bows to community pressure

Ubisoft has conceded ground to PC gamers by announcing that they will remove their much maligned DRM system from the PC release of From Dust.

The new patch should remove the requirement for the PC to be connected to the internet in order for the game to run and should be available in around a fortnight.

Ubisoft stated on their official forums: "Our tech teams are working on a patch that should release in approximately two weeks that will eliminate the need for any online authentication. This development time is required as we are working to ensure that those who have already started the game, and whos progress is currently saved on our servers, will receive and save their game information locally. Once the patch is ready, players who already have the game will automatically receive the update on their next login and subsequent game sessions will be 100 per cent offline."

The patch has been developed in response to the massive outcry from the PC gaming community over the state that the PC version of From Dust was released in despite a delay as well as the inclusion of their notorious DRM.

Thanks MCV.
