Ubisoft’s God game From Dust is has been available for less than 24 hours but its purchasers are already being refunded by online distribution giant Steam after a breach of terms by Ubisoft.

The publisher stated that there would be no DRM with the game other than a one-time-activation. However This seems to have turned out to be a big fat lie as the inclusion of metapoint service Uplay demands DRM. Meaning the user would always have to be connected to the internet to log in to Ubisoft’s and play the game
They've betrayed the trust and loyalty of the pc gaming crowd.
This will not end well and there will be consequences for their actions.

Also, here is a screenshot from a post that Ubisoft has since deleted from their forums. Further digging their grave.



UPDATE:

Ubisoft themselves also seems to be offering refunds.

If you contact the retailer - or if that's not an option, Ubisoft Support they can advise you further on the next stages you need to go through if you wish to pursue a refund.

As one of the commenter's said. This game has been cracked for the last few days. So once again, the only people DRM affects, are the people who actually pay for it.
