Ubisoft has confirmed that the PC version of Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood would not include its DRM that caused a scandal last year that required the player to be permanently connected to the Internet. In case of disconnection, the game will automatically put on hold.
The game will feature a classic protection, requiring to enter the serial number to activate it online.
This DRM was poorly embedded last year, Ubisoft had even faced a DDOS attack that had dropped its servers, and prevented those who had bought Assassin’s Creed 2.
Titles like Assassin’s Creed 2 and Splinter Cell: Conviction has benefited from the radical anti-piracy. Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood require a fast internet connection to the server ID of Ubisoft at the launch of the game and once identification is complete, the player can fully enjoy their purchase.
