Assassin’s Creed 2 PC: DRM Server Fault Causes ‘Lock Out’

We have recently heard that PC gamers who play Assassin’s Creed 2 have been recently experiencing issues with the game, apparently overloaded DRM servers are ‘locking out’ gamers.

From what we can see the problem first appeared yesterday, since then a massive thread has appeared on Ubi’s European forums, however at the time of this post the forums seemed to be down.

I checked Ubisoft’s Twitter page, apparently the problem should be fine now and it only affected some European games, they first tweeted “Apologies to anyone who couldn’t play ACII or SH5 yesterday. Servers were attacked which limited service from 2:30pm to 9pm Paris time” and then added “95% of players were not affected, but a small group of players attempting to open a game session did receive denial of service errors”.

People are saying that if you are lucky enough to be in a gaming session do not log out, for more details check out GameSpy.
