Ubisoft to start making their PC games to always have to connect to the internet in order to play wasn't popular from the start. It got worse earlier this month when some players of Assassin's Creed 2 and Silent Hunter 5 were unable to play their games due to outside attacks on Ubisoft's DRM servers. Now it seems players of both games have received emails from Ubisoft offering compensation for the downtime.
According to the message boards for both games, players have gotten emails apologizing for the downtime and also offering a way to get a free downloadable Ubisoft game from a pre-selected list. Some owners of Assassin's Creed 2 have gotten offers to download extra content for that game for free. While it's great that Ubisoft is making this gesture we have a feeling those players would like the "Always On" DRM to just go away completely.
