Ubisoft Revive DRM Servers After DDoS Attack

Today is a big day for Ubisoft, as Assassin's Creed II is launching for gamers in North America. Those who have been playing since last week's release in Australia and Europe can attest to that it hasn't been a completely smooth ride with the Ubisoft DRM servers being attacked.

It seems that Ubisoft is pulling itself together in time for the last step Ezio has to make into the new world. The game publisher tweeted in the early hours of Tuesday morning:

Login servers were partially reestablished at 10pm CET and fully restored at 1am CET. The attack affected only those trying to login

To those of you who pick up Assassin's Creed II during the day, please let us know things work out!

  • Ugh, the DDoS attackers need to stop being so lazy... They might as well go out and get a job if they let this golden opportunity slip by...

  • I refuse to buy any game that has such a DRM scheme as this. Will not be purchasing ANY Ubisoft games from here on out until they change this practice. I canceled my pre-order when I heard about the DRM.
