Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition on Steam - Additional DRM except Steamworks?

Like the title says. I'm curious if the Steam version of BG:EE has other additinal DRM's beside Steamworks?

Thanks in advance.

(And awesome that this game is finally on Steam! :))

    BG:EE through the stand alone installer doesn't have DRM, so neither will the Steam version. You will just need to be logged into Steam to play it.

    I'm playing it on Steam now and no there is no additional 3rd party DRM besides Steam. It doesn't have a launcher it's just a straight exe. Updates will be pushed through Steam instead of a launcher.

    Thanks for the answers. Bought it and I'm happy with that. :)

    I hadn't read about this, it looks like it was pushed to steam very quietly. The folks at Beamdog must have had their hands forced because they are a direct competitor to steam and had sworn from the beginning they would never release it on that platform.

    I for one am happy whereas I refuse to use an inferior distribution platform and will be finally purchasing the game now that is available through Steam instead of Beamdog. As a development company, hopefully Overhaul will learn from the mistakes of BG:EE and release BGII:EE in a much more smooth manner. Android users and Mac users are pulling their hair out at the promises left unfulfilled.
