BioWare’s upcoming old-school RPG will use an old-school disk check, instead of any troublesome copy protection.
When you start up your PC copy of Dragon Age: Origins, you’ll only have a simple disk check standing between you and the game.
It seems that Electronic Arts finally got a hint from the DLC hullabaloo that occurred right after the launch of Will Wright’s SPORE (which was a DLC idea that practically defined stupidity).
EA is using a similar disk-only copy protection system for The Sims 3, so wait- EA is one of the good guys again? The only other publisher I’ve known to be so lenient with copy-protection would be Bethesda, who implement a similar disk check for their games, instead of SecuROM or any other such overly complex system.
Way to go, EA!
