Atari and Eden Games announced this morning that Alone in the Dark for PC will require the SecuROM online activation procedure. It'll be certified with Games for Windows and is compatible with Windows XP and Windows Vista operating systems.

Press release:
The PC version of Alone in the Dark is protected using SecuROM™ online activation. This requires that in addition to the content on the game disk, players download an additional component via an internet connection in order to install and run the game.

To install the game on a different computer, players must revoke the serial number when uninstalling from the first machine (this is an automatic option during the uninstall process).

Yeah and here I last week found some sources saying it wouldn&#039;t be intrusive...
This is bullcr@p and another game not finding its way to my computer. *sigh*

Ah well... it is summer, so I can always catch some rays instead.
