Ubisoft apologizes to Assassin's Creed 2 purchasers who found themselves unable to play due to attacks on the verification servers, offering free game downloads in exchange for their forgiveness.
I suppose you don't even need to forgive Ubisoft in order to take advantage of the special offer, sent via email to Kotakuite Igor, one of the many players affected by the server downtime that made it impossible to connect to Ubisoft as required by its ridiculous new digital rights management system.
For his trouble, Igor now gets to choose between four games - Prince of Persia, Heroes Over Europe, Endwar and H.A.W.X., downloading them directly to his PC without having to bother with the draconian DRM scheme of Ubi's newer titles.
Is this enough of an apology for you folks?
Update: Reader włodi received a similar email, only he was offered the downloadable content previously only available in the Special Edition of the game, including the Palazzo Medeci, Santa Maria Dei Frari, and Arsenal Shipyard. It looks like special edition and normal edition purchasers might be getting two different apologies.
