Dragon Age 2: Legacy DLC to Address Player Criticism
Two weeks ago, EA announced the first Dragon Age 2 story DLC, titled Legacy. Since then, we’ve seen a trailer and a gameplay video for this DLC, slated for release on July 26. In a recent interview, Dragon Age Senior Producer Fernando Melo revealed that Legacy contains roughly five hours of content and that it was designed to address player feedback.
We really had to go back to the storyboard after the launch of Dragon Age II, to take in the feedback and figure out, how do we make our content better?
Hopefully, people see this not as everything we’re doing [to respond to feedback], but rather as a first step toward addressing some of their points.”
Some of the major criticisms thrown at DA2 were the way it recycled locations and the repetitiveness of battles, two issues that Legacy addresses.
If somebody comes in and they’re expecting that this single DLC is going to solve everything — whatever everything is for them — then clearly this is not going to meet their expectations. If it’s somebody that enjoys DA2, they will absolutely love it. If it’s somebody that enjoys the lore and story of Dragon Age, I think they’ll absolutely love it. If somebody was kind of on the fence with DA2 and they’re still willing to come in with an open mind and give it a chance, I think they’ll be pleasantly surprised with what they find here. Hopefully.
Will Legacy bring back angry Origins fans? We’ll find out next Tuesday.
