Steam are now officially offering to refund any purchase of From Dust after an angry backlash over the controversial u-turn over the DRM used in Ubisoft's god game.

Ubisoft has also announced that it is ‘currently working on a patch that will eliminate the need for any online authentication for From Dust.’ The company is estimating 2 week before the the patch is released.

Ubisoft originally told users that From Dust would not feature the controversial and draconian always-online DRM used in some Ubisoft PC games, then inexplicably reneged on the policy without comment.

If you bought the game and wish to return it, you can either contact Ubisoft directly or wait for Steam to contact you via email.
