Ubi offers freebies to DRM victims

Free games are being offered to some of those who suffered at the hands of Ubisoft’s DRM server problems earlier this month.

Some gamers who bought copies of either Assassin’s Creed II or Silent Hunter V on PC found that they were unable to play the titles for a short period thanks to Ubisoft’s new DRM measures, which require a constant internet connection for authentification.

When Ubisoft’s servers suffered an attack, the games were taken out of commission.

Now Kotaku reports that some users have received an email offering a free download of either Tom Clancy’s HAWX, EndWar, Heroes Over Europe or Prince of Persia. None of them come bundled with the controversial DRM, incidentally.
