Ubisoft’s new always on Internet connection DRM hasn’t won any fans here at Max PC, but we do applaud the company for at least taking a stab (pun intended) at making amends to paying customers who were shut out because of a DRM server attack.
The game company wrote registered customers; "Following the recent temporary game server outages which may have caused disruption to some Assassin’s Creed 2 players on PC only, we would like to reward your patience if you have experienced any problems by offering you some additional content – previously only available with special editions."
The special edition content was previously exclusive to those who ordered the Black Edition of the game, but apparently some users are now reporting that Ubisoft is even giving the option to trade up to a free game. Examples given include Hawx, Heros Over Europe, EndWar, Shaun White’s Snowboarding or Prince of Persia.
It’s not as good as offering to patch out the DRM, but is this peace offering enough for you to forgive Ubisoft?
