Dragon Age: Origins to dump SecuROM for PC release

Electronic Arts may finally be getting the message from consumers about draconian DRM set-ups for PC games. After getting slammed for using online activation set-ups in order to play Spore, EA announced earlier this year that The Sims 3 would only use a disk-based copy protection set-up. Now BioWare has revealed that it will use a similar set-up for the upcoming PC version of Dragon Age: Origins.

BioWare's community coordinator Chris Priestly states, "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." He added that SecuROM won't be used by any version of the game (this presumably means digital download copies as well). Dragon Age: Origins is schedule for release by EA this fall.
