It's a bit too late for Ubisoft considering the damage done but it looks like they're planning to remove a patch to get rid of the DRM that's been causing quite a headache for everyone. Here's the quote from the official forums; 
"We recognize that one of our posts in the From Dust forum regarding the need for authentication in the game was not clear. We sincerely apologize for the misunderstanding. Our tech teams are working on a patch that should release in approximately two weeks that will eliminate the need for any online authentication. This development time is required as we are working to ensure that those who have already started the game, and who’s progress is currently saved on our servers, will receive and save their game information locally.Once the patch is ready, players who already have the game will automatically receive the update on their next login and subsequent game sessions will be 100% offline." 
I haven't played the game myself and I'm not sure if I still will given the fact that Ubisoft have been shafting and lying to PC users a lot recently. As for the dodgy mouse controls and capped frame rate, I haven't heard anything on that yet though hopefully they'll fix them in the coming days. Thoughts?

Hopefully they fix everything else people were complaining about for the port.
