Silent Hunter 5 and Gold Edition Preorders

Ubisoft announces preorders are now being accepted for Silent Hunter 5: Battle of the Atlantic and Silent Hunter 5: Battle of the Atlantic Gold Edition, two versions of the submarine simulation due for release on March 4. The Gold Edition will be released via digital distribution, offering a couple of perks, including "seven unique submarines and enemy ship skins," which sounds quite familiar to the "7 unique submarine & enemy ship skins" promised with the Collector's Edition announced in January. Images of some ship models accompany the announcement, and here's word:
Silent Hunter 5: Battle of the Atlantic hails the return of the number one submarine simulation. For the first time, the player will be able to play as a U-boat captain leading his crew from a first-person view in a true dynamic campaign. Operate against Allied shipping across the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea and participate in famous encounters with strong enemy warships.

The Gold Edition will be available for download only and will contain seven unique submarines and enemy ship skins. The Gold Edition will also include the Silent Hunter 5: Battle of the Atlantic Official Guide containing 110 pages of crew details, submarines, ships and weapons as a pdf on the build.

I have to admit I'm pissed, but I'm not worried. I agree Ubi shouldn't be pulling this shit, but I don't think they'll get away with it unscathed. EA learned (for a month or two) from their mistakes, I'm almost positive the same will happen to Ubi. The general press has gotten wind of it and they'll pursue it if only because it's a light news day. They will change their minds in one way or another. If not pull the DRM wholesale, they'll release a patch after SH5 is released to neuter the DRM. Hell, X3's dev EGOSOFT do the same. X3 had DRM but it was turned off in a patch after the game had sold long enough. I have a feeling this will be the same deal...

And if not, it will certainly be cracked soon after release anyway. I'm sorry, but the game looks awesome. I'm not gonna 'bite my nose to spite my face'... Sigh
