C&C4 DRM causing problems

Internet requirement to blame.

Command & Conquer 4's requirement of a permanent internet connection is causing problems, with some purchasers unable to play properly since the game's release last Friday.

One reader wrote to Eurogamer describing numerous crashes after "unexpected loss" of internet. Repeat failures were met with the message, "We will contact you with a solution." Crashing loses in-game progress.

This apparently occurred on both Saturday and Sunday. And this experience doesn't appear to be isolated; the game's forums are awash with complaints.

EA community manager "EA_APOC" Tweeted that Russian and French clients have been patched. But they seem to be the only ones.

We'll chase EA for comment.
