No matter how quickly and adeptly you control your vehicle in the PC version of Driver: San Francisco, there's one thing you won't be able to get away from: the internet. In a brief missive on the Driver Twitter account, an Ubisoft rep confirmed that the "PC version requires permanent internet connection." Ubisoft previously used this DRM scheme for high-profile games, but has since loosened the restriction for many releases. Not this one!

The console versions have a different online scheme: they'll be the first Ubisoft releases to use the "Uplay Passport," a one-time-use code included with new copies that unlocks multiplayer access.
