Arkham Asylum Steam Keys Broken by DRM
It seems that Batman was broken not by Bane, but by mishandled digital rights management software.
That’s the case for a ton of people who scooped up Batman: Arkham Asylum during the Steam Summer Sale and haven’t been able to, uh, actually play the game. Apparently an issue with SecuROM, the DRM software Warner Bros. baked in with the game, is causing the Steam keys to fail to work.
The result: a forum so slammed with angry Batman fans, you’d think someone had posted a negative review of The Dark Knight Rises. Valve is likely getting an eyeful over at the Steam Forums where players have been angrily complaining, but is remaining silent on the issue while Warner Bros. gets it sorted.
We’ll keep you updated as to when you Arkham Asylum buyers might actually be allowed to pay the game you paid for. Meantime, play something DRM-free from GoG.com or something.
