BioWare has responded to reports that Electronic Arts smuggled SecuROM onto retail PC discs of Dragon Age II, denying the presence of the notorious DRM. According to the studio, the SecuROM alarm bells sounded due to a another Sony-branded DRM measure, Release Control. 

"The confusion stems from the use of Release Control which is also made by Sony," states BioWare. "Release Control was employed to protect the game against usage prior to its release date. These are two different technologies with different purposes. Release Control in no way affects users’ rights to access after launch, and its executable automatically deletes itself once the Release Control process is finished."

Because the two pieces of software use similar library files, various folders bearing the SecuROM name appeared on computers. These files can be removed without problems. Further details can be found on this page here.

Our review of the game is still coming, by the way.
