Ubisoft drops online-only DRM for R.U.S.E.

Recommended Videos

The silly, Internet connection-requiring DRM Ubisoft has been using on its games as of late won’t be used with Eugen Systems’ R.U.S.E. Instead, the real-time strategy game will utilize Steamworks. This means you need to activate your purchase online with Steam once, and only once.

Additionally — and unlike past Ubisoft PC titles — the single-player portion in R.U.S.E. will be playable offline. I know some of you vowed to pass on all of the company’s games that used the awful UbiDRM, so here you go. This one is okay! Well … as okay as it’s going to get, anyway.

R.U.S.E. Won’t Use Ubisoft PC DRM, Will Be Playable Offline Thanks To Steam [G4]
