Ubisoft has decided to offer free game content to PC players of Assassin’s Creed 2 and Silent Hunter 5 after users were unable to play their games due to attacks on the DRM servers.

According to posts over on Ubi’s official message boards, emails have been sent out by the company offering those affected with a free downloadable game from a pre-selected list. Some claim to have been offered extra content for ACII for free.

The DRM servers went down at the beginning of the month.

Ubisoft has said that all PC games from the company will require users to always be online when playing, and explained that it will not hurt your saves should you be disconnected.

Still, understandably, it’s a bit of a thorn in PC gamer’s sides.
