The game will require a one-time authentication, will then offer offline play
Chris Taylor, the leader of Gas Powered Games, says that his team aims to allow all those who play the upcoming Wildman to run the game offline as long as they are only interested in the single-player component.The developer tells Rock, Paper, Shotgun that, “There might be some element of authentication, but I’m not a fan of that. The only thing is that for any persistent elements to register, you need to be logged in to the server. We do aim to be persistent. We want a character that you can play and grow.”
Wildman is still in the early stages of development and the overall concept for authentication might change at a later date.
But Taylor says that he is not a fan of Digital Rights Management and does not want to integrate it into his titles.
