Fallout 3 to remove Games for Windows Live support and Steam DRM
Posted: 09.01.2014 08:51 by nickhorth1 Comments: 2
The slow death of Games for Windows Live continues, with Fallout 3 now abandoning the service. In a Steam patch released yesterday several lines of code supporting GFWL were removed.

 
NeoGAF forum members first spotted the new patch changes, which remove the need for a registry key when booting up the game. It seems like the process is not quite complete, however, as BlueNews report that removing the GFWL client causes Fallout 3 to crash. The likelihood is that the recent patch is part of an ongoing process that will complete in the near future.

Fallout 3 wouldn't be the first to get rid of the unpopular service, with BioShock 2, the Batman Arkham series, and Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War 2 all removing support.

Nice :-)

So what about you Capcom and Codemasters? You have many games with G4WL enabled.

So, will they do the same for the retail editions?! Or we will be left eyes wide open in the sun, punished for the fact that we've went into a brick and mortar shop to buy our game?!
