C&C4's controversial DRM Details
"No DRM" says EA... Except you have to be connected to the internet at all times

The great DRM row continues this morning, as it's confirmed that Command & Conquer 4 has adopted a similar DRM system to the heavily criticised one used in Assassin's Creed II.

In a post over on EA's Command & Conquer 4 forums, community manager 'Apoc' writes "First thing to be clear about, Command & Conquer 4 has NO DRM. Zip, zero, zilch, none."

Sounds excellent, except a few lines later he adds: "To play Command & Conquer 4, the computer needs to be connected to the internet."

PC Gamer's investigated Command & Conquer 4's controversial DRM, which as requires a constant internet connection - just like Assassin's Creed II.

So what happens when you lose your connection to EA's servers during a C&C4 game session? The short answer is: bad stuff.

PC Gamer's done some extensive cable-yanking experiments which have revealed that once you're in-game, getting disconnected produces this message:



As it says, you can continue to play, but your progress won't be saved.

If you then attempt to reconnect and continue with your mission you'll eventually be booted back to the main menu, all progress lost. That means even a momentary interruption to your connection kills your session completely: everything you do from then on is pointless.

The only way to avoid losing progress is to save your game the moment you get that message, quit out, then start it again, says PCG.

It's on sale in Europe from 19 March.
