Edit 7/5/13: The third part Act Control DRM with limited activations has now been removed confirmed via a rep from the publisher Focus and a user who was previously locked out but is now able to play.
(Note that the Steam store page has still not been updated to reflect this and I'm not sure when/if it will though I did let the Focus rep know it would be a good idea to do so)

Actually, there's no addition to the game. That's more like a removal : the DRM was removed from the game. :)
And from page 4 of this thread:
I used up all my activations trying to get it to work, after it 1st launched, so i just reinstalled it again, i can play the game now, and the DRM files are also not in the installation folder anymore, so yes can confirm the DRM is gone :-)
Edit: I found out later after asking this question yes this game does include additional 3rd party Act Control DRM with limited activations. Not that this is NOT listed on the game's page.http://steamdrm.flibitijibibo.com/index.php?page=DRM_Lists/The_Big_DRM_List#03_hardware_based_starforce_actcontrol.txt
ACTControl is a fork of StarForce AAA Protection. It is unknown if this is either a genuine fork or a replacement of StarForce. Information

Oh and PS, the publisher says if you don't like DRM go play on a console:http://forum.oforcsandmen.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=76&p=213#p198
Re: Which DRM for pc version?

It's important for a studio to protect its games that's why Of Orcs and Men will have a DRM protection.
As Of Orcs and Men is a game inviting you to play an orc, it would be great if you can play on console if you don't like DRM version.
What is the DRM on this game? Whenever I see Focus and Cyanide I automatically think of draconian 3rd party DRM forced on their games. In the past their games have had additional DRM that was not listed on the Steam page so I don't think not seeing anything about it there is a clear sign either.
Gamers gate lists Act Control DRM. Is it the same here on Steam and if so what is the limit on the number of installs?
