EA Releases De-Authorization Management Tool For SecuROM-Infested Games

If you’ve ever purchased a game with SecuROM, you know full well why DRM sucks. There’s nothing quite like having to jump through hoops to reinstall a game just because you reformatted or upgraded your computer. Unfortunately there are some games that are worth putting up with the DRM, which means you’re stuck either passing up a great game, or putting up with crappy DRM. Well EA has finally stepped up and given us a tool that will help alleviate some of those pains.

The EA De-Authorization Management Tool is a simple utility that lets you de-authorize your game, and re-install it on the same computer after a format, or on a completely different one. Sure, you could use one of your limited activations, but using the tool will ultimately keep things simpler in the future. Of course your other option is to buy games like Mass Effect on Steam. Install it on as many machines as you want, and just log into your Steam account to play. No muss, no fuss. If you’re wondering which games the tool works for, hit the jump for the full list.
