I mean you'll have to play the retail version on Steam too? Because I read that Ubi removes the DRM, and I heard that the game could be Steam exclusive. Is it true?

(Btw, I'll get the Codex Edition of the game, it doesn't matter)

I also hoped so, but i don't think so, ordered the Codex Edition Retail anyways.

I just hope they find a way to implement a good matchmaking, friend system and anti cheat system.

Are they removing the DRM for sure? I didn't see Ubi say anywhere they will remove it.

Also I highly doubt you will need Steam to play retail version..

I heard that you'll only need an online activation and then you're free to play without internet connection.

I don't have the link for exact proof, but I can tell you where to find it. In the ACB PC post, Mr_Shade confirmed already about the DRM. He said it would require an initial activation for single player and after that it can be played offline.

Ubisoft confirms that the PC version of Assassinís Creed Brotherhood, after an initial login, will be playable offline in single player mode.

It can be found in the ACB Specs Thread
