Ubisoft has released an Assassin’s Creed II patch to update its controversial DRM to be just slightly more accommodating to the legal customers.
As explained earlier, the company’s new anti-piracy effort requires constant internet connectivity. Should the connection be interrupted, the game simply ends and any progress beyond the latest save point is lost. After applying this update however, the game will remember where the player was, what they were doing and, once the connection is restored, will continue from that exact point.
The patch (v1.01) arrives just ahead of the game’s street date; March 5 in Europe, March 9 in North America.
