If they announce this game will use steamworks only as DRM then I'll pre-order via amazon so I can try it. Assuming I like it I can even see myself buying this. This and Civ are some of the only PC games I still I'm willing to put up with this kind of thing but it's really frustrating to think that ubi is screwing the game up with their own brand of always on DRM.
Stick with steam DRM, I can begrudgingly live with that. (Assuming the game is awesome, less than awesome and you're on crack)
Edit: Change of plan, pre-order in, when beta comes around I'll hopefully get more info on what madness you're planning. Assuming you're doing they game through steam I'll give it a shot, otherwise pre-order canceled.
