Faces of War Delayed

Ubisoft's Faces of War Product Section reflects a new release date of Summer 2006 for 1C/Bestway's upcoming World War II real-time strategy game (thanks Frans). The release date previously listed there was 4/25/2006, but there is nothing that sheds light on the reasons for the setback. In a minor consolation, the site also offers some new screenshots from the game.

For a game like this that isn't going to be released yet, I don't need to know if it has starforce or not. The devs might not even know the answer until it's out. If it's released or a demo is out, I'd like to know. It's a valid queston whether you like starforce or not.

Starforce isn't malware. The purpose of it is not to cause harm. That's just an unintended side effect.

For me this has become a very simple issue.

I speak with my wallet. I am happy to support people like Stardock who use a very effect yet very simple copy protection scheme. All they need is your serial in a registered account to receive the patches and upgrades. The game itself has no copy protection, no disc checking...nada.

There is no game, not even Oblivion, that is worth me purchasing to infect my machine with malware.

-Here's a hint. You hate starforce? Get the crack. Simple. Stop bitching about it

Cracks don't help with the problems Starforce causes. You still have to infect your system with it prior to using a crack. I don't want that junk messing with my registry and hardware config AT ALL. Starforce has numerous documented problems and I will not buy (or download) any game that uses it. It is not worth it.

If it's only half as good as Soldiers, it'll be awesome.

No? These posts seem to:

Hmm, none of those really show support for SF. They all just seem to be tired of hearing about it. If anyone actually 'likes' SF, then please be more clear because I would like to know. I can understand having heard enough about it, but to be happy about a game having SF would be weird.

No one is supporting it. I don't think there is anyone who actually likes it.

No? These posts seem to:

-If you're still bitching about StarForce, you should pick up a new hobby.

-The vocal minority can't seem to get a hint. Let it go already, don't buy the game if you don't want to, and stop wasting everyone's time. Yawn.

-Here's a hint. You hate starforce? Get the crack. Simple. Stop bitching about it.

-We've all been educated, then educated again, and then educated some more. This topic has been beaten into the ground. Nobody's said anything new for a year. That's what I meant by 'wasting everyone's time'. I don't think there's a single person on the internet who by now wouldn't be able to compile a 20-point list of common consumer complaints on starfoce, and yes that includes your roommate's auntie from Duluth.

It's a lot easier to sit here and complain than it is to actually do something organized and useful about it.

That's quite funny, but I'm guessing the irony is unintentional.

Gotta love the morons who support the act of screwing software customers as a whole.

No one is supporting it. I don't think there is anyone who actually likes it. We would all be happy if it didn't exist. Some people are just tired of hearing others complain about it everytime a game is mentioned which has SF. Afterall, complaining here is not going to change anything.

As for the game, I'm looking forward to it. I, too, enjoyed Soldiers, so this is on my list of games to get.

Gotta love the morons who support the act of screwing software customers as a whole. Thumbs up, guys! And yeah, it's probably delayed because they're researching new antipiracy measures; whether they'll admit it or not is another matter. Ubisoft knows use of starforce is hurting them, and they've even publicly admitted to "looking into the situation."

Want to organize? (see below)

Why? Starforce is still a horrific protection method.

How about game developers getting a new hobby? WW2 is getting to be such a cliche.

The 2nd Starforce was really the best of the first three versions. But episode 4 onward really blew. Mee-sa gonna grind-a your DVD-a.

Oh God. Apparently basic reading comprehension is not a skill some posters here possess. How bout trying to understand other what people are trying to say, rather than having a knee-jerk reaction and pouring out a full paragraph the second you see the word StarForce?

Fine, keep bitching about it. Maybe UN will give you a medal for protecting us all from corporate evil. The unsung hero of the Internet. Uggh.

Translation: hey developers! We don't mind getting a$$raped by fascistic yet otherwise worthless DRM. Please make the situation worse by making another copy protection that's even more problematic than StarForce. Don't worry: even if the next game you release automatically formats the PC if it even detects a hint of an illegal problem, maybe someone will complain, but we all failed basic history and pattern recognition. We won't bother to 'draw the line' - ever. We trust you to do that for us. After all, you're funded by megacorporations that have nothing but our best interests at heart.

People that think that fear is 'wasting time', need to get educated about how this protection works.

We've all been educated, then educated again, and then educated some more. This topic has been beaten into the ground. Nobody's said anything new for a year. That's what I meant by 'wasting everyone's time'.

I hope however that this game improves upon the fantastic game that was Soldiers. That was so much fun blowing up buildings with tanks and all that.
