Recently Ubisoft intimated that they were working on their own DRM system to prevent copyright infringment on their games. Today the released details of the new DRM, there is none! There is a caveat though, you need to be connected to play your shiny new Ubisoft game.
Much like Relic with Company of Heroes, each time a Ubisoft game is started it will phone home using your internet connection to verify that it’s legitimate. This will happen via existing Ubi or Uplay accounts.
There are pro’s and cons to this method of verifying game sessions, so in our forums we have a Q/A from Ubisoft painting the positive side of the debate, and to kind of balance that out we have a slightly more cynical take from member krise madsen. Which is more accurate? You decide.
