That’s right folks, Ubisoft’s nefarious DRM has been tossed out by them by EA has decided to recycle this horrid DRM in their upcoming multiplatform smash hit “Bulletstorm”, this DRM was most well known in Splinter Cell: Conviction and Assassin’s Creed 2 for the PC. The player had to maintain a constant communication with Ubisoft servers and during an internet disconnection the game would remain paused until connection could be reestablished.

EA is really starting to show their hate for the PC gamers, first they don’t give gamers a Dead Space 2 or a Bulletstorm demo to enjoy (Both are 360 / PS3 only) and now they are bringing back a draconian DRM to ruin the whole fun of what is meant to be a SINGLE PLAYER GAME along with multiplayer.

UPDATE: Only the digital version requires constant internet connection, the retail version will not need internet connection
