I completely love the anno series of games. Now I have bought anno 2070, install it, activate it, and now when I run the game, I am required to login.
There is an "offline mode" button in the launcher, but even if I click on it, as the game starts, I am asked to login. No offline mode button this time.
The manual states the following:
You need an active broadband internet connection to activate Anno 2070, to receive updates and to play the online features.
I have already activated the game, I have already updated it, and I don't want to play the online features. Yet I seem to be required to register.
The point is I don't want to register. I purchased an offline game, and I want to play it offline. There is absolutely no valid reason I see why it is mandatory to give personally identifiable information in order to play my game.
So, how do I play my game without having to register?
