The $60 download-only Gold Edition boasts an "exclusive" map, original soundtrack and extra castle customisation options "including a gate, balcony, bay, gargoyle and two windows," hitting PC and Mac on March 23 alongside the $50 regular edition.
Meanwhile, Ubisoft has told Ars Technica that while its new DRM requires Settlers 7 players be online at all times, unlike Assassin's Creed 2--which shuts down and sends players back to the last checkpoint if they go offline--it will pause until they reconnect then continue "at the exact point where the connection was lost."
I like how they specify exactly how many windows you get.
But /two/ windows! BUY NOW! Only 6 payments of $9.99! Order now and get this FREE debilitating DRM!
And so we are entering this $60 price point bullshit now for PC games (with extra!), thanks to stupid MW2. Of course, with the free awesome DRM in tow, as well!
This is getting from bad to worse, apparently.
