BioWare’s confirmed that the PC version of anticipated RPG Dragon Age: Origins won’t come with SecuROM or anything else like it.
From the game’s forums:
We’re happy to announce that the boxed/retail PC version of Dragon Age: Origins will use only a basic disk check and it will not require online authentication. In other words, the retail PC version of the game won’t require you to go online to authenticate the game for offline play. We have chosen not to use SecuROM in any version of Dragon Age that is distributed by EA or BioWare.
It’s out towards the end of the year for PC, 360 and PS3. Hit the link for the full thing.
