Dragon Age Legends goes from Facebook F2P to offline

Jun 20 // Chris Carter    @DtoidChris

I'm not sure if any of you out there remember it, but around the launch of Dragon Age II, Bioware released a free to play Facebook game called Dragon Age Legends. The game was basically a mixture of city-building and strategy RPG combat, and had a decent amount of content to work through.

However, Legends unfortunately utilized the despicable "pay to play" model, which only allowed you a few battles per day before constantly pestering you to buy "energy" so that you could continue on your quest. After a week of playing this back in the day (solely for the Dragon Age 2 item unlocks), I threw in the towel, as I could basically only engage in one battle per day without paying for better items (otherwise known as a pay-wall).

Now that the game is reborn in a completely offline, actually free manner, I'm going to give it a shot and see how it holds up. Bioware has also stated that they're looking into recovering your Facebook characters in the next few days, which is neat.

Dragon Age Legends is now a single-player, downloadable game! [Dragon Age Legends]
