From Dust DRM Patched

Steam News announces the promised patch is now automatically available for From Dust to remove the requirement that the god game authenticate itself over the internet every time it's launched. The new version also moves saved game files out of the cloud and onto user's machines. Here are the patch notes

  • Title can be played in offline mode (no connection to the Internet is required after installing the patch)
  • Save file is moved from the Uplay/Ubisoft server to the local machine

UBI, you're like a deadbeat husband that beats his wife, then apologizes and promises never to do it again. Sorry, I'm not falling for this shit.

So, if I buy it now does that reinforce that it's okay to put DRM in and then later take it out?
I'd rather reinforce no DRM altogether.

Dilemma aside: Game still looks cool, and would like to check it out.

You could have made the save on local/cloud an OPTION instead of sour grapes. I've played other games that had steam cloud saves that didn't require always online connections.

It wasn't using Steam Cloud, it was storing the saves on Ubisoft's server.

Wow, glad they took so long to patch it. I was going to buy this but I pirated it because of the DRM, and it's not a very good game. Thanks Ubi, you saved me 15 bucks!
