[CVG] BioWare: Mass Effect 3 players 'will be fine with non-intrusive Origin DRM'

Mass Effect 3 executive producer Casey Hudson has told CVG that PC fans have nothing to worry about from playing the upcoming game on EA's digital distribution platform Origin.

The studio confirmed in January that all digital and physical versions of Mass Effect 3 on PC will require users to have Origin set up on their machines.

"Just like you get with any other kind of online digital distribution, or multiplayer or whatever. It's not something that requires you to always be online - you can play Mass Effect 3 offline."

Mass Effect 3's campaign will require a one time, single authorisation, with no limit to the number of installs.

Not that worried about origin, mainly because I've had it installed since I got BF3 on release and its been alright. Glad to see that while it has DRM, you can at least have some sort of freedom with it (unlimited installs and offline play).

Actually, I do not think Origin is horrible. It just needs a few things added and fixed.

BF3 kinda sucked. Played it for about a week. Then went right back to Project Reality, AIX, and BF2.

Glad to hear.

I have no problem with Origin, as long it doesn't force use to be online to play offline games and this is great news for those who doesn't have a solid connection. (not me, just saying)

Origin is on the right track IMO. Plus, they have a decent number of sales and promos smile.gif I'll be buying ME3 after I finish replaying ME1 and ME2 tongue.gif

Still requires origin, sorry I value my privacy over this game. Make it optional and I will reconsider, I already have the other two on disk that only require a CD key to play, why change it?
