BioWare's 'Dragon Age: Origins' Will Not Include SecuROM Authentication

BioWare community coordinator Chris Priestly has confirmed via forum post that the PC version of the company’s upcoming Dragon Age: Origins will not include SecuROM’s online authentication program. As many of you know, SecuROM was the controversial DRM application used in Spore; it angered thousands of users and caused a class-action suit. For Dragon Age, all PC users will need to play the game is a computer, a lot of disk space and even more free time.

Ah. Reminds me of a simpler time. A time when UAC’s and SecuROM were but flickers in the eyes of obnoxious do-gooders hell bent on being as overprotective and frustratingly obtrusive as possible (oh, being concerned about rampant piracy).

To find out more about what awaits you in the Dragon Age when the game hits shelves later this year (Xbox 360, PS3, PC), be sure to check out TheFeed's Raymond Padilla’s interview with Bioware founders Dr. Ray Muzyka and Dr. Greg Zeschuk from DICE 2009.

I’m sure no one has anything bad to say about SecuROM, so I won’t even bother asking you to comment…
