PC Dragon Age to forego SecuROM, relies on disc check

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.
