Ubisoft has issued a recall for Collectors Edition copies of the submarine sim Silent Hunter 5: Battle of the Atlantic
, According to a report from the German site ComputerBase
. Apparently, some offending World War II-related symbols (we're guessing swastikas) were left in some of the bonus content, which violates German law
. This only affects the Collectors Edition.
The ComputerBase post briefly mentions the Ubisoft DRM
that has been so problematic
for players of Assassin's Creed 2
and this game, confirming that the same scheme is in use there. It must not be as bad in Germany, because someone was able to play long enough to see a swastika.
