EA has released a De-Authorisation Management Tool for PC gamers who own one of their many SecuROM managed games, such as Mass Effect and Dead Space.

The tool will allow gamers to de-authorise an install and then take the freed software installation and use it elsewhere (another PC or a fresh install). This should significantly reduce the hassle associated with EA's SecuROM titles.

Games supported by the tool:

- Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box

- Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3

- Crysis Warhead

- Dead Space

- FIFA Manager 09

- FIFA Soccer 09

- Littlest Pet Shop

- The Lord of the Rings: Conquest

- Mass Effect

- Mercenaries 2: World in Flames

- Mirror's Edge

- MySims

- Need for Speed: Undercover

- NHL 09

- Spore

- Spore Creature Creator

- The Sims 2: Apartment Life

- The Sims 2 IKEA Home Stuff

- The Sims 2 Mansion & Garden Stuff

Last week The Sims series executive producer Rod Humble revealed that The Sims 3 will be released DRM free. Instead the game will feature disc-based copy protection and a serial key.
