This is very disheartening news, as I was hoping to buy a DRM free retail copy with a bunch of goodies. Gonna have to cancel my preorder and get it somewhere else now.

My god.

It's hardly DRM. Did you just read SecuROM on the title and posted? Or are you one of those silly people that just hate any form of DRM?

In that case, don't buy any games period because everything has DRM, even STEAM games.

WTH are you people talking about?! This is the best DRM I've seen so far. I can give this game to my friends and family without any hassle, that's what counts for me.

Man you must hate fallout 3 too... It uses securom too.
and if people haven't realized it, it's 5 activations at one time, which they have to be deactivated when you want more. Far better then the old method of 3 or 5 activations period. Either way it's a fair system, now why don't you complain about The steam drm? You can only have it activated on one computer.

SecuROM when used right is fine. Most of the bad rep it gets is due to EA being a pain with it. Fallout 3 used secuROM and you don't see people going the DRM in fallout 3 is horrible. Also isn't 3 or 5 activations better then steam's 1?


edit: Now to clarify somethings. When you log onto another pc with steam it deactivates the first computer. This is one advantage to having an account. Valve can go oh the person has gone to someone else's place or to another computer. secuROM can't because there's no account that the game's tied to just a CD key so they can't go hey they are at a friend's house. Due to just having a CD Key as reference it means they have to treat every activation as that you are sharing the key, and therefore you got to deactivate it yourself.

Any word if the Steam version will include Securom? The store page hasn't been updated yet, so I'm hoping it stays Securom free.. I don't mind Steam DRM, just Securom is what I have trouble with. I'd rather cancel my pre-order from Steam and pre-order from GOG if that were the case.

everyone should be buying this from gog.com anyway.

CD projekt owns GOG. If you buy from them, more money is going to the devs.

Needing an internet connection to activate isn't really something to complain about, having internet is as common as having a radio when radios were first invented, and widespread.
