What Are You Playing This Weekend?
What are ye playin'?
Last night, footage of Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon broke out (it’s now been removed). It’s likely the work of Russian hackers who found a way to trick the uPlay game launcher into thinking that they already own certain games according to Eurogamer — even if, in this case, the game isn’t out yet.
Ubisoft’s name has been mud with PC gamers for a good long while. Ending always-on requirement to play games and other DRM restrictions helped it somewhat, but it is still widely perceived as a publisher most interested in Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 titles — and for good reason, as Rayman Legends fans might say.
Well I can’t say I saw this coming, but it makes a whole lot of sense. While EA is still restricting the sale of its games on Steam, it’s now allowing Ubisoft to sell certain games on Ubi’s Uplay service. According to a statement from Ubisoft, games from Warner Bros and a handful of other publishers, will also be made available.
Not one to be left behind by the likes of EA , Ubisoft officially launched their uPlay client for PC today.
Ubisoft’s uPlay, the online service largely used for validating the digital rights management on PC games, has been down for much of the day. If this is planned maintenance, Ubisoft didn’t do a great job of communicating that to its users, who are ripping the publisher a new one on its official forums.
