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!
