Does the cloud version of Lightroom require an internet connection?

I’m finally resigned to the fact that I may need to start paying for Lightroom in subscription form rather than just buying it outright.The one thing I’m still worried about is whether Lightroom CC (the cloud-based, subscription version) requires an internet connection in order to work. I know that many games use DRM systems that won’t allow an application to be launched until they can “phone home” and verify that the user’s license is good. Does Lightroom work this way? If I’m without an internet connection for some period of time will I be able to continue using Lightroom locally on my machine?
