From Mr Shade:
Due to the recent confusion over the type of DRM used in From Dust:
We are aware of some confusion over the inclusion of DRM in the release of From Dust on PC.
To prevent any on-going confusion we would like to clarify From Dust PC will release with DRM requiring a one-time only online activation. After which you will be able to play the game offline.
We hope this clears any outstanding confusion on the matter
Please find the following detailed explanation of the type of DRM used.
'From Dust' requires an internet connection when you start the game.
Make sure you are connected to the internet when you attempt to start the game.
After you have signed in and the game is running, you no longer need the internet connection for that session and can disconnect and play offline you so wish.
Are you seriously trying to fob people off with this rot? "One-time" does not mean "each time".
UBISoft mislead / lied to its customers which is why Steam is now offering refunds.
Just admit it.
I know you are not the one responsible Mr Shade and I feel sorry for you having to face us on your own but are you kidding me?
Ubi LIED TO US !!! You wrote that "From Dust PC will release with DRM requiring a one-time only online activation". Everybody understood this as a One-Time online activation and "not one-time only everytime you start the game"!!
An official statement and an apology is what I expected, not some cheap way out! I will never buy a game from Ubi again, sorry, but that does it!
just get your money back, im already fighting to get my money back, i wont take this sh#t
Already opened a Ticket with Steam.
To be honest, I do expect an apology and explanation....

The pinned thread is an explanation of the current DRM.
It is not an excuse or an attempt to "fob off" anyone...
There may be an official statement about the misunderstanding - however I'm not able to say for sure, I can only repeat what I am told.
If you wish to continue this discussion please contact me personally rather than calling me out on the forum, since I may miss the thread.
