Overnight PC players the world over have noticed that Ubisoft’s controversial DRM policy which requires gamers to be connected to the internet at all times when playing the likes of Assassin’s Creed 2 and Splinter Cell: Conviction has been changed to allow offline play.
Previously whenever a connection was lost to the Uplay servers gameplay would cease, but now that is no longer the case with players able to continue their playtime.
According to initial reports from PC Gamer, a connection to the internet will only be required to validate the installation files whenever respective Ubisoft titles are booted up.
This recent development will undoubtedly be viewed as a step in the right direction by PC owners who suffer from a less than reliable internet connection.
