16. Re: Ubisoft Plans Mandatory Online Authentication Jan 26, 2010, 11:34 SBlat
I was just wondering about this yesterday. The beta for Settlers 7 requires installing "Startup Utilities" and to play you run an Ubisoft Game Launcher, which requires logging into an account.

It was much too slick to be meant only for beta control, and it includes generic text when you enter your beta cd key about the game being permanently tied to your account.

This year is looking like it's going to be full of really annoying DRM experiments on all the big budget PC games.
