Another hit by Atari released on StarForce protected DVDs


“Atari has selected StarForce to protect their brand-new game called Race Driver 2”, a supervisor from StarForce Technologies has stated today. “Race Driver 2” is produced by Codemasters and distributed by Atari. It was released in Taiwan in July 2004. The game is designed for both PC and Microsoft Xbox platforms. The product is distributed on DVD discs protected by StarForce.

Atari is a leading global publisher and developer of interactive entertainment for both gaming enthusiasts and the mass-market audience. The company’s products are based on internally created intellectual properties or products licensed from third parties, and include most recognizable names in popular entertainment industry.

This is the second case of Atari’s cooperation with StarForce. Earlier they used StarForce to secure their hit game — “Desert Rats VS Afrika Korps”.

Both titles are protected using the StarForce Professional 3.0 solution. StarForce Professional 3.0 utilizes latest copy protection know-how and provides a high level of security yet being a very usable solution for end users. StarForce Professional is designed to assist software developers and publishers to suppress high-volume industrial piracy as well as illegal copying by end users. The protection technologies implementation doesn’t require publishers to use any special tools for a licensed disc production, quality control, or other procedures.

Pleased with the quality of StarForce service and proven effectiveness of the company’s technologies, Atari is planning to continue its cooperation with StarForce in the nearest future.
