Ubisoft has silently backtracked on a previous pledge that the PC version of From Dust, which was delayed until after the release of the console version and quietly released in the midst of GamesCom 2011 in Cologne, would not feature Ubisoft's DRM.

As reported on RPS, users are in uproar on Ubisoft's official forums, with the game apparently suffering from a spate of technical issues too.

Despite Ubisoft originally claiming that users would only need to sign in once to register the game, the PC version of From Dust actually requires a constant internet connection.

On top of that, the PC version of the game lacks any graphical settings, is without anti-aliasing and is locked to 30FPS, according to reports.

Ubisoft has amended posts on the official forums to reflect the reality of the situation and is advising users to contact Customer Support if they have problems.
