Ubisoft Apologizes For Hosing PC Gamers By Offering Free Downloads

Ubisoft had the fantastic idea of forcing gamers of Assassin’s Creed 2 to stay online while they played, to ensure via DRM that players weren’t pirating their wares. Then hackers brought down the servers, rendering the game unplayable.

Now the publisher is apologizing by tossing players some free games, Kotaku reports.

Kotaku says Ubisoft is emailing an offer to affected gamers, letting some choose the downloadable content for Assassin’s Creed 2, while offering others downloads of Prince of Persia, Heroes Over Europe, Endwar or H.A.W.X.

If you were affected by the server shutdown, let us know if you’re happy with the make-good offer.
