avatar-the-gameIf you saw Avatar the movie you certainly felt the need to play the computer game as well. Actually, I think it’s safe to say that even if you haven’t seen the movie Avatar The Game is on your list and if you purchased it, maybe you have a few questions regarding the activation procedure.

I’ve searched details regarding the most frequently asked questions regarding the activation and DRM of Avatar The Game and found some official information that will hopefully prove to be helpful.

So, what DRM is used with Avatar?
The game is using a new driverless activation solution, one developed by Solidshield (T@GES partners)

How many activations do I get?
You can indefinitely activate your copy of the game on the same PC. You start with three activations (so, three different PC hardware configurations) to begin with. After one month, one activation will be re-credited (up to a maximum of three available activations at any given time).

Do I have to be online to activate my game?
While the activation solution will initially attempt to activate your game online, you can elect to manually enter an activation code. You will need to enter the code that comes with your game into the activation wizard, you will then be given an activation code that you can enter manually. So, although you do not necessarily need to have your computer hooked up to the internet, you will need to go online to obtain a code before playing.

Can Tages be removed from my computer?
Once the activation process has been completed, the activation soultion does not install any software on your computer. Once the activation is completed, a data file is stored. This file is not hidden and can be removed from your computer if you wish. In this case, a new activation process will be triggered at the next game launch (without any effect on your activation count credit). Finally, the activation is driverless: no driver must be installed and uninstalled.

Is it possible to revoke an installation?
Revocations are not considered, since users get one new activation per month, so if you do somehow manage to burn through your three activations, you only need to wait one month or contact support.

I hope this information regarding the activation of Avatar: The Game was helpful!
