Dawn of Discovery heads for the future in Anno 2070

Anno2070 - playwisegaming.comKiss the kings and colonies of yesteryear goodbye. The Anno series, an RTS world-sim known as “Dawn of Discovery” in America, is headed for the year 2070.

Ubisoft DRM reduced but still present

Splinter Cell DRM - playwisegaming-comUbisoft quietly removed their highly restrictive PC-only digital rights management system from “Splinter Cell: Conviction” and “Assassin’s Creed II” on Jan 1 and claims that from now on the DRM will be used on a case-by-case basis.

The DRM, which has been widely despised among gamers, requires a constant connection to Ubisoft’s servers and, if interrupted, will instantly kick players from their games until they can reconnect.
