Rumor: Ubisoft's DRM already bypassed by crackers


Hey, remember that infamous Ubisoft DRM that requires you to maintain a perfect internet connection? That was a big problem for a lot of folks. Well, a big problem for about 24 hours, at least.

If rumors currently going around the scene are true, Silent Hunter 5, a submarine sim released by Ubisoft and equipped the DRM that will also be vexing owners of Assassin's Creed 2, Settlers 7 - and all future PC gamers who wish to buy their Ubisoft games legitimately - has already been cracked wide open by cracker group SKIDROW.

According to instructions from the released crack files' .nfo document, the process is apparently quite simple:

Don't use/install Ubisoft launcher, or block any connection to the internet.

Install game and copy crack, it's that simple!

We don't intend to download the game for the sake of confirming the claim (that would just be rude), but if they're true, it really didn't take too long at all.
