Ubisoft scrap "constant connection requirement" from DRM for its PC games

The controversial anti piracy "DRM" from Ubisoft which was released last year for gamers PC gaming, was constant in the titles of the French company, accompanying the launch of games like Assassin's Creed, Splinter Cell: Conviction, The Settlers 7, Silent Hunter 5 and Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands.


The most critical point of this DRM by users was the obligation to be permanently connected to the Internet to play, otherwise the game would be blocked until connection again.

Now according to the reports coming out, it seems that this restriction has been removed by Ubisoft for PC games, as the aforementioned titles are able to be executed by users without the need to be permanently connected to the Internet. The protection system now seems to be limited to an initial validation to start the game.

Ubisoft declined to comment anything about it for now, and it is unclear whether this "change" is only temporary and if re-apply in future PC games.
