DA2 UK Early Access - possible?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys.

Im one of those unfortunate sods living in the UK having to wait a few extra days to to play Dragon Age 2 ..... i know a few extra days, killer right!?


Anyways, as i've preordered and preloaded through Steam, a thought occured to me - my CD key is now available which i've registered with my Bioware account now.

So then wouldnt this be a possability - if I were to torrent the game client, launch/login using my bioware account and play to my hearts content?

As in terms of accounts and licensing everything is all go - its just the game client it self is locked down and encrypted till the 11th of march.


Thoughts?

Won't work.

The game it's self has a Date check and it will automatically check the date online and see wether to let you play it or not.

I live in Germany, and I cant play it for the next 36 hours

Aye, but a crack has just been released; this should counter the date check no doubt?

Maybe, but then you may risk having your account banned, and we can't really discuss this over this forum as it is against the rules.

I will rather wait until tomorrow Midnight to play it, it isn't such a long wait.

No, didn't you bother to listen to me?

Of course you can pre-load it, but you won't be able to legally open it due to the Date check...

Ilegally, of course you can open it, but I am not going to help on that, I do not condone piracy.

Update: Been playing all day perfectly fine -

Entered my CD key from Steam into EA Download Manager, downloaded the game client, ran an IP Hider to change IP Address to US, ran Dragon Age 2, passed the Date check, close IP Hider, entered Bioware/EA Account details. Been playing fine all day with all my pre-order DLC in check.

Hope this helps
