Miner Wars Delay, Promotional Price Plans

Miner Wars is now expected late this year, announces Keen Software House in a status report for this underground MMO shooter that was previously expected before the end of last year. The reasoning reflects an odd take on the term "indie," as they seem to equate it with quality, rather than publisher affiliation: "This release was intended to be an 'indie' released product. We have however decided that in order to bring the full quality to the gamers out there we will push the release until the late 2010." They also announce plans to make the Windows version of the game available before it is completed for a promotional price "that will be at roughly 1/3 of the final product price," though this plan will not apply to the Xbox 360 edition. Miner Wars will feature fully destructible environments, a single-player story in addition to the MMOG, and in a throwback, boasts six degrees of freedom.

From this page:

Overview

Miner Wars is a 6DOF underground and space shooter played in a fully destructible environment and is a combination of single player story game and MMO.

Anti-Piracy

The game will not utilize any sort of DRM protection, nor activation code. To play the game you only need to download and install the package and enter your login/password. As the game interacts with our servers during the game play, we periodically check for suspicious users. The game isn't locked to your computer, so you can play it from home or work


So you have to log into the server and stay connected to play the game as an MMO only or single player as well? If it's just for the MMO I wouldn't call it DRM....but if I need an active internet connection to play single player as that page seems to indicate, I sure as heck would call that DRM.
