Ubisoft's always on-again, off-again relationship with its restrictive DRM policies is "off-again" for Assassin's Creed: Revelations
. Rock Paper Shotgun
reports word from the publisher that it will activate an initial check the first time the game boots up -- and then players are good to go with offline play.
The publisher gave the Assassin's Creed
series a break from its always-on DRM after the first sequel
, with last year's Brotherhood spared the inconvenience
. Meanwhile, other Ubisoft products, like Driver: San Francisco
and From Dust
, have been burdened with the internet-required protection at launch.
Well, at least one thing remains consistent in the social contract between Ubisoft and PC players: there's no sign of the publisher halting its predictable staggering
of console and PC launches.
