After testing waters with Assassin’s Creed 2, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands and Splinter Cell: Conviction, French publishers Ubisoft has thought wise to dump its controversial DRM for its equally annoyingly titled strategy game R.U.S.E. The DRM required players to be online even for the single player campaign, and would not save if the connection disrupted during play. Ubisoft will now instead use Steamworks from Valve.

“When R.U.S.E. is released in September, it will benefit from Valve’s Steamworks API to offer the best community experience to players,” Ubisoft revealed in a statement. “Consequently, a Steam account and Internet connection will be required to activate the game, as per Steam policy. For this reason, R.U.S.E. will not use the Ubisoft protection. Single player can be played offline,” the publisher explained.

R.U.S.E is scheduled to release on September 10, 2010 for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
