Battlefield: Bad Company 2 screenshot. SecuROM being removed via patch
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 for PC on Steam is having its SecuROM DRM removed thanks to a new patch (version 522175).

Naturally the patch will also fix other issues, like improving the notifications for failing to join a multiplayer server and improving the server browsing so it sorts by lowest ping by default.

  • Watch The Latest Gaming News:

  • You may want to avoid updating sooner rather than later, because early adopters are having some issues with the patch crashing their games and the like. Also, those with retail copies of the game (bought in a store and not digital) will have to wait for their patch, as the retail version has more additional QA testing to go through. The patch is only applied to the Client, not the servers, which means that you can play with others who have successfully patched their game without having to patch yourself to play them.

    Battlefield: Bad Company 2 joins an ever longer list of games that have taken their SecuROM out post-release, due to outcry from gamers, including Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3, Bioshock, Bioshock 2, and Spore. Dragon Age: Origins, also from EA, abandoned SecuROM altogether, which hopefully will be the trend moving forward.

    The following video shows off the kind of destruction that you can create in Battlefield: Bad Company 2.
