It looks like R.U.S.E. will be using Steamworks instead of Ubisofts Always Online DRM

http://g4tv.com/thefeed/blog/post/70...-To-Steam.html

Looks like a good move. Hopefully Assassin's Creed brotherhood will do the same.

I wonder if we'll see an influx of "I AM GOING TO BUY R.U.S.E" threads.

That was the main reason for me not buying this(that and having way too many RTS games to play)

They probably realized the cost of DRM servers far outweighs the cost of piracy, heh, funny, cost of piracy, get it?

Instead of Ubisoft 24/7 online DRM they're using Steam 24/7 online DRM.

Clap hanz....Bravo....

Seriously don't see the real difference between Ubisoft's always on DRM system and Steam when it comes to a game such as this one which is primarily pushing the online multiplayer component (especially given that Steam's offline mode is broken).

Except Steam doesn't need to be online 24/7 to play the game.

If by "steam 24/7 DRM" you mean "steam activates the game online then you can play it offline", then isn't that a (very) good thing?

"steam activates the game online then you can play it offline"

Except for 2 points:

1 - Offline mode doesn't work for a large number of people (including myself)
2 - How are you going to play the multiplayer part offline?

Now if this were single player only game and offline mode actually worked, then there'd be a real reason to celebrate. But not in this case.
