Ships Ahoy - DRM-Free Cryostasis

Aspyr announces Cryostasis is now available in North American stores and via digital distribution, offering a frosty first-person shooter set in the Arctic. Here's the announcement, which includes word that Aspyr is publishing this and four other 1C Company games (Men of War, Death Track: Resurrection, NecroVisioN, and 4X4 Hummer) without any digital rights management:

Austin, Texas- April 28, 2009 - Aspyr Media, under license from leading Eastern and Central European publisher 1C Company, announced today that Cryostasis for PC is now available at North American retail outlets and via digital download at www.gameagent.com. Cryostasis brings its unique brand of icy terror to North American gamers without the use of DRM software. The first five titles published by Aspyr under license from 1C in North America - Men of War, Death Track: Resurrection, Cryostasis, Necrovision, and 4X4 Hummer - will all be DRM-free.

Cryostasis brings gamers to the Arctic Circle, Russian North Pole station "Pole 21" in 1981. They take on the role of Alexander Nesterov, a meteorologist caught inside the "North Wind," an old nuclear ice-breaker, frozen in the ice many years ago. This steel beast once fought for its country, but it fell into an ice trap as did every living thing onboard. Alex will fight the cold and what lives within as he tries to find out what happened. Cryostasis is a drama about a ship and her crew evolving in an atmosphere of ice and animal fear.

Cryostasis is available for PC for the suggested retail price of $29.99 and is rated 'T' for Teen by the ESRB. For more on the game, please visit www.cryostasis-game.com.

Metacritic average seems to be along the same lines. A lot of the reviews seem to cite poor performance, which might be fixed at some point, but it doesn't seem like there's an English patch as of yet.

Even the reviews that lambast the game seem to be fairly impressed by parts of it, so I don't know, might be worth a try.
