Russian hackers exploit UPlay and download games for free… including the unreleased Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon

Ubisoft’s uPlay launcher has been hacked by Russian hackers, allowing them to download the service’s games for free. Their software tricks the launcher into thinking the user already owns a particular game, allowing them to download it for offline play and bypassing the uPlay DRM security measures.

An image, published by Gameranx, shows the client downloading Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon – which appears to already be on the servers as a 3051mb file. The game won’t be out officially until it’s release – May 1st. This is funny.

      “Ha ha, look at me! I’m humorously ironic seeing as how I am a Russian myself as evidenced by my poor English grammar and the use of a single round bracket to denote a smiley face.”

      Oh, Mineass you are riot.

      On a more serious note, uPlay fails so much as both DRM and a distribution platform that it’s making Origin look somewhat decent by comparison.
