Assassin’s Creed II Patch Suggests Softening of DRM

A new patch for the PC version of Assassin’s Creed II has been released and suggests that Ubisoft may be relaxing its new DRM system.

Among other fixes, the update will allow users to continue their game from the “exact same point” if their connection drops.

Ubi’s new DRM system has proved controversial due to its condition that gamers must have an always-on  internet connection to play the game.
