Might and Magic X: Legacy - DRM Server Shuts Down, Breaks DLC

Proving once again that in the long run, DRM only harms legitimate customers, Ubisoft seems to have shut down their verification servers for Might and Magic X: Legacy. As a result, people can't access the game's DLC and are unable to progress past Act 1 if they just have it installed.

Here's a quick excerpt from the PC Gamer article linked above:

Enterprising users on Reddit have already found a script-changing workaround, though it requires editing game files to bypass checks and add certain triggers. That's of dubious legality in some territories, but most notably it just brute-forces the DLC areas into the game: You don't get to go there as part of the story that would normally direct you. It's a subpar hack at best.
