Negative community feedback changes PC DRM policy

Ubisoft has altered the way digital rights management works in the PC version of Driver: San Francisco after receiving negative feedback.

Players will no longer be required to have a constant internet connection in order to play the game, reports Rock, Paper, Shotgun, but they will need to sign in online at the game’s launch.

A statement from Ubisoft read: “We’ve heard your feedback regarding the permanent internet connection requirement for Driver and have made the decision to no longer include it. 

“So this means that Driver PC gamers will only need to sign in at game launch but can subsequently choose to play the game offline.”
