Originally the company promised the game would have a one time activation and then players could enjoy the game offline. That turned out to be very much not the case when the game actually released.

I hope that game sells continue to suffer - maybe Ubisoft might actually start understanding that we don’t want nor care for their DRM “solutions”… And if they ever LIE about it again, I hope the gaming community lets them know (possibly by stopping to purchase Ubisoft games…) that we won’t stand for it… “From Dust” looks interesting, but I’m completely turned off from it because of the business practices of Ubisoft.
And whom knew right?? All they did was prevent buying customers from enjoying the game they bought and supporting the software developers. Guess they only listen when the honey pot dried up. That is so typical of software game developers they forgot that without the game players buying the game they wouldn’t be in business in the first place. But as with DRM games goes I will believe when I see it DRM free and not til then will I believe their line that they have DRM free games.
