From Dust has always-on DRM removed

9 Sep 2011 by Paul Younger
A new patch for the PC version of From Dust will remove the dreaded always-on DRM. This represents the latest move in an apparently unpredictable Ubisoft DRM strategy, which has seen certain games from the publisher released without always-on DRM (such as Ruse) and others using it regardless. In the case of From Dust, it was suggested that the game would not have the DRM ... until the very last minute when Ubisoft claimed mixed-messages and confusion and included it in the title anyway. That led to reports of refunds and some rather unhappy buyers stuck with a DRMified game. That is, until today. A patch has been released through Steam that will remove the dreaded DRM, allowing offline play. In addition, saves are moved from the Uplay server system to your own PC.
