PC From Dust now playable offline

Patch released on Steam.

The patch that enables From Dust to be played offline on PC has been released on Steam.

This is applied automatically when a Steam client is restarted.

The update, specifically, does two things:

  • Title can be played in offline mode (no connection to the Internet is required after installing the patch)
  • Save file is moved from the Uplay/Ubisoft server to the local machine

In other words, this patch removes the anti-piracy DRM element from From Dust. This required PC gamers to verify, online, their copy of From Dust every time they played.

Such a requirement punishes laptop gamers on aeroplanes or trains, or those with inconsistent or non-existent internet connections.
