Dragon Age Legends goes from Facebook F2P to offline

Dragon Age Legends goes from Facebook F2P to offline photo



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]

Dirty Bomb aims high with its focus on hardcore FPS action

The folks at Splash Damage have been busy over the last two years. Since the release of Brink and a stint on Batman: Arkham Origins' multiplayer, they figured it was time to return to their roots with a heavy focus on PC...more

Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is out today, and it kicks the crap out of All the Bravest

Final Fantasy: All the Bravest was a travesty. It played itself, it was pretty abrasive in its pandering, and the microtransactions were so pushy that it was hard to enjoy it without feeling like you were constantly being sold something. Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is another free-to-play game in the same vein, but it's a much better effort that doesn't feel straight-up insulting to fans.more

Multiplayer-only Halo Online headed to Russia

Halo Online sounds like something you'd see scribbled on a homemade DVD complete with copyright-infringing cover art but, no, it's a proper PC game in development at Saber Interactive. Granted, it's a free-to-play, multiplaye...more
