Ascaron Entertainment and cdv Software Entertainment USA are going to try a new DRM strategy with their upcoming game Sacred 2: Fallen Angel.

If you purchase a copy of Sacred 2, you'll be able to install it on a friend's computer, which will let them play the game for free for 24 hours before locking down. If your friend likes it, they'll be able to buy the game online and keep playing.

This is an interesting strategy because it gives gamers a fully-featured game to try out for 24 hours instead of a feature-limited demo that works forever. Well, as long as you know someone that buys the game.

We also recognize the risk, however, of hackers cracking the lockdown and making the process even easier for software pirates. Either way, it's nice when companies think of new solutions to approaching DRM.
