Following reports that Ubisoft is giving some PC gamers a free game by way of apology over its DRM server issues, the publisher has explained to IncGamers exactly what is on offer to Assassin's Creed 2 and Silent Hunter 5 owners.
Can I get HAWX?
If you have the Black Edition of AC2 or Silent Hunter 5, then yes.
That's darn decent of Ubi, kudos.
I can't see it placating the PC community for long though. The DRM is still going to be a bone of contention.
Heh! Bloody good news!
Giving away something for free? Impossible! :lol:
Still not buying games with this sort of DRM.
Has this DRM been cracked yet? Because last I heard, pirates can't quite access the real game. They can roam around the early stages of the city, but can't start missions and such.
That's pretty decent compensation everything considered. It still doesn't solve the underlying issue with the DRM though.
They are doing this in part because of their DRM. They said that they would release a patch to remove the DRM when it was cracked giving users the 'full experience'. As long as they keep expanding the definition of 'full experience' then they never have to patch it removing the world's worst DRM
