Just Cause 2 uses Steamworks DRM
Just Cause 2 is to feature Steamworks as its digital rights management system of choice.
Just Cause 2 now joins Supreme Commander 2 and Aliens vs. Predator as the latest high-profile title to use Valve's DRM system.
Steamworks, which first appeared on Half-Life 2 has quickly established itself as a credible DRM system despite early doubts and problems.
The system requires the Steam client to be installed on the user's PC and running alongside the game. Unlike Ubisoft's new DRM system, Steamworks does have an offline mode so PC gamers will still be able to engage in wanton destruction in the South Pacific even if their internet goes down.
