Alpha Protocol uses Uniloc DRM

SEGA explains PC approach.

SEGA has told Eurogamer that spy role-playing game Alpha Protocol will use Uniloc DRM on PC.

Uniloc came under fire in November 2008 when Football Manager 2009 owners had trouble authenticating games online. SEGA said that was due to high demand and a small key-printing hiccup.

Actual solid details on how Uniloc tools work are hard to find on the company's website. However, we're promised a "polite" and "unobtrusive" DRM solution that will run "without compromising [your] experience".

Alpha Protocol, developed by Obsidian Entertainment, will be released on 28th May. Eurogamer played the game in March; our hands-on impressions contain our thoughts.
