Yesterday some rumors were circulation about the digital version of Tomb Raider: the version available on PSN apparently required players to be logged in into their PSN account to be able to launch the game. This was a first for a triple AAA digital release on PSN: only a select few PSN only titles had DRM implemented and none of them were major releases. This was even more stranger since the retail game didn’t have anything like this: players who decided to go digital would be having to deal with a problem exclusive to their version of the game.
This morning Square Enix has officially spoke on the matter, stating that Tomb Raider has no DRM protection for the digital version of the game: everything started due to the wording on the PSN Legal Notice. While it was stated on the text, the game doesn’t really have anything like this and gamers will be able to download the game and play it without having to be always logged in.
To avoid further confusion, the DRM part in the legal notice has been currently removed: download and play away!
Tomb Raider is currently available on Ps3, Pc and Xbox 360 in North America. The game will be officially released tomorrow in Europe.
