I'm skeptical this won't be some kind of DRM check once a week or something

I'm going to assume it's an artifact of a sloppy Android port, and keep my money until it's fixed.

Or, $20 would buy a really nice pizza or something. It'll be vastly less intrusive, too, at least until it gets to my colon. Bethesda seems to be going the other way around here.

I do have a battlenet account somewhere.
Frankly I don't understand the issue.

Shouldn't have to give up your purchase history just to buy a company's product.

the nvidia shield version (android) requires you to log in to google play store to verify the purchase, after that you're good offline

I have to be online to play all of my switch games though because I game share with my daughter.

Is it really that big of a deal?


What if every game wanted you to do it?

Why would every game need a blizzard account?


Why does this game need one?

almost 30 year old Game port requiring an internet connection so that they can harvest and sell your data.

Rofl.

You've never had a Game Server fail to authenticate, Go down, get abandoned, Stop responding, or a 1000 other useless issues that happen with a worthless DRM login?

It's a layer of failure that adds nothing to the consumer, and can cause a ton of worthless frustration that makes a 30 year old PC Port unplayable for people.

So I grabbed Doom 1 before heading off to work, and when I tried to play it before my shift started, it gave me the “Bethesda Account Needed” message that I can’t do anything with because internet here sucks. Basically, a single player game I can’t play. Great job Bethesda.

I just bought Doom 3. When I hit the prompt, I just pressed B to go back and then started the game no problem. Didn’t get the prompt again, didn’t create an account.
