Remember all the fuss that Electronic Arts caused when it started shackling its PC games with ire-inducing
-- and ineffective
-- SecuROM DRM? It looks like BioWare was paying attention, as the company has announced
that the EA published Dragon Age: Origins
will not ship with the much maligned copy protection.
BioWare's Chris Priestly stated on the Dragon Age
forums that the game will rely on a simple disc check for copy protection and will not require any kind of online authentication. There is still no word on whether or not the upcoming pen-and-paper version
will include any sort of anti-Xerox measures.
