Disgruntled players of From Dust via Steam can now request a refund in relation to online authentication issues, Steam has announced.

Ubisoft has said it's putting the finishing touches to a patch which will remove the need to online authenticate From Dust, but those unwilling to wait or simply too angered by the situation can request a full refund.

"Ubisoft has just announced that they are working on a patch that will eliminate the need for any online authentication for From Dust," read a Steam support ticket sent to Giant Bomb. "The patch will release in approximately two weeks. If you don't want to wait for the patch or if you haven't played the game, per Ubisoft's request, we will issue refunds for this title. If you would still like your purchase of From Dust refunded, please reply to this ticket."
