Dragon Age II features hated SecuROM, despite previous EA claims

When BioWare announced the DRM restrictions for the PC version of Dragon Age II, many gamers sighed with relief at the exclusion of the infamous SecuROM DRM. But even though the game's forums specifically noted that it "does not use SecuROM," it looks like the widely loathed DRM scheme was included anyway.

According to a report from consumer advocacy site Reclaim Your Game, as spotted by Destructoid, the PC version of DAII not only contains SecuROM, but also fails to mention this information to the consumer in any form.

And this isn't the first time that EA, BioWare's parent company, has found itself in hot water by sneaking in SecuROM. Back in 2008, EA was sued for failing to inform customers that the DRM was included in the free trial versions of certain games. The company could find itself in similar legal trouble now as there is no information about the inclusion of the DRM in DAII to be found on the game's packaging, website, or elsewhere. Confounding the matter is the fact that EA previously said the game wouldn't include SecuROM, likely prompting at least some additional sales from DRM-wary consumers.
