Fear 2: Project Origin - copy protection and cut versions
Fear 2: Project Origin doesn't have copy protection but has to be activated via Steam. At least the German gamers will see less brutality.
The Monolith game Fear 2: Project Origin is said to come without copy protection like the unpopular Securom. In order to protect their creation anyway, the developers make use of Valve's Steam platform and thus online activation. The advantage of this is, as Pressakey has learned from publisher Warner Bros Interactive, that a CD or DVD is not required for playing the game. Details on the exact procedure of the online activation are not available at the moment.
Fear 2: Project Origin received the "Mature” rating of the ESRB and the "keine Jugendfreigabe” signet of the German rating board USK. Because of this a cut version without separable limbs and less blood will have to be issued for Germany. Although the German ratings are known to be rather strict, in might be possible that other countries will allow Fear 2: Project Origin to mature customers only or apply even more drastic restrictions.
