Ubisoft has come under fire of late for its strict DRM for PC titles including Assassin's Creed 2 and Silent Hunter 5, with attacks on verification servers making it impossible for some gamers to play their new purchases.

Realising it needed to do something in order to apologise to PC gamers, Ubisoft has launched a promotion offering Assassin's Creed II players the ability to claim a free PC game download or a selection of DLC previously included in the Assassin's Creed II special edition.

The four games on offer are Prince of Persia, Heroes Over Europe, EndWar and HAWX. Those who qualify for the freebie will receive an email explaining how to claim their gift.

So they are apologising for their fuck up but are they removing the DRM that caused this problem in the first place?

Want to apologise for real? Offer a decent game that isnt older than the PC and remove the drm thats pissed off so many people.

A comment on kotaku summed this fiasco up perfectly. "So your efforts to stop gamers playing your games for free, has resulted in you giving your games away for free?"

That's a pretty good turnaround for a major corporation admitting they're sorry and offering a make-up gift. I'm sure they just looked at the lacklustre sales figures for ACII on PC and said "Yeh, okay, our problem isn't pirates".

Hopefully that's the last time they'll try anything like that with PC gamers, who, I'm sure, will just crash ALL of their servers next time instead. Even their Exchange Servers :P

Question is: Have they really learned a lesson from the fiasco?
