Dragon Age Legends Reborn As Single Player Free Download

If you were bummed by the recent death of Dragon Age Legends – EA shut down the popular Facebook game on Monday – then you might want to pull the fainting couch out. Defying logic and their own evil history, EA has inexplicably made the game available as a single player free download.

Just a couple of catches: The game requires Adobe Air, so you’ll need to download that; and you won’t be able to access your character from the online version of the game… yet. But you will soon! The DAL team is currently gathering all player data and will make it available so that players may resume their games where they left off, sans the ability to invite friends to play or purchase upgrades.

I never played Dragon Age: Legends, but I have to say I’m confused. EA isn’t forcing people to play multiplayer, they’re allowing access to a game even after they’ve decided not to support it officially, and it’s free. Did someone go back in time and change history and forget to tell me? If so, could you do something about Dead Space 3 and SimCity?

See Dragon Age Legends’ official site for more.

Kind of surprising considering it is coming from EA. Seeing as how they seem to be giving up their current favorite way to make money (microtransactions) I’m guessing they weren’t seeing much out of this anymore.

Or it could be in some effort to try to win people over and get them interested in DA3. At PAX they finally seem willing to admit that DA2 had serious flaws, though that was done more out of marketing DA3 by claiming it won’t do the things that upset players before (recycled areas, etc.)

I’d rather have that Exalted March expansion to DA2 that wraps up the story, but okay. Ending your ****ing games properly is such movink target!

They’ve partially come to reality. On the one hand, they realize that having only 4 painted backgrounds for everything was a really bad idea. On the other, they still think the “iconic” look of the DA2 characters was the way to go, and that customizing your companion’s armor was far too cumbersome and hard.

My view of Bioware has taken such a dive since DA2 was released (they’ve released 3 major FUBAR’s since then) I really have absolutely no expectations for DA3.
