Steam Offering Refunds on From Dust
Apparently, the DRM for the PC version of From Dust has stirred up so much ire that Ubisoft has requested that Valve give out refunds for copies of the game purchased on Steam. Here’s an email that some scoopers have shown to RPS:
Ubisoft has just announced that they are working on a patch that will eliminate the need for any online authentication for From Dust. The patch will release in approximately two weeks.
If you don’t want to wait for the patch or if you haven’t played the game, per Ubisoft’s request, we will issue refunds for this title.
If you would still like your purchase of From Dust refunded, please reply to this ticket.
Weird that it says “or if you haven’t played the game,” but OK. This is a big deal, though. Refunds? That pretty much never happens.
