  • Can it be installed on multiple machines?
  • Can I sell it after I am done with the game (just a like a console disk)?

The best information I found around this the following link which talks about DRM; What's the DRM Model Ubisoft is Using for Assassins Creed III on the PC?.

PC games most often uses a CD-key that once it's used it's not up for grabs again like on a console.

Consoles solve this matter by having a requirement to have the disk inside the console to start the game.

On PC you can pretty much install then throw away the CD.

Reguarding AC4 i think you have to bind it to a Ubisoft account.

Q1: So yes, you can install it on as many computers as Ubisoft / steam / Origin allows.

Q2: But you can't sell your copy of the game after you have "activated"/"Used" your cd-key

Thanks! I would opt for steam in that case, installation media is backed up. –  krafts Dec 4 '13 at 19:32
You can sell the account though, if you make a seperate UPlay Account for the game. –  Assylum Feb 12 at 11:04
