As Dragon Age II nears release, BioWare has revealed what PC gamers can expect from the game's DRM. The Steam version of the game will feature the regular Steam DRM, with no additions. The non-Steam versions of the game, though, will feature several restrictions.

You won't need the disc in your machine to play and there's no limit to how many PCs you can install the game on, though each install requires you to login to your EA account. There is a limit to how many PCs you can use to access the game over the course of a day, though: you'll only be able to play on up to five systems in a 24-hour period.

The game will require online verification every few days, though details are still being finalized. "We'll have more info on this closer to release," BioWare wrote on the official game forum. "Not trying to avoid the question, we honestly have not settled on this yet—but also did not want to further delay getting the rest of the information out to you."

The developers were also quick to point out that the game does not use the infamous SecuROM DRM. But it does utilize something called Release Control, which restricts players from accessing the game before the release date. BioWare says that this doesn't install anything on your PC, and it will remove itself once the game's release date has passed.

Dragon Age II is set to hit the PC, 360, and PS3 on March 8.
