Dragon Age 2 DLC will listen to core fan criticism, BioWare head honcho Ray Muzyka recently told Eurogamer.
"It’s been one of the most polarizing launches we’ve had, frankly," Muzyka said. "Many people who played Dragon Age: Origins loved it as well. But also there were a lot of fans of the original Dragon Age: Origins who weren’t as happy with it. Maybe they were looking for more of the same, and it was different and innovative in ways they weren’t expecting."
Our own Dragon Age 2 review would agree, as we found just as much to love as we found questionable.
"We’re committing to making sure all the products in the franchise going forward are going to appeal to a wide audience, both the core and more," Muzyka said. "We think it was innovative. We’re proud of the risks the team took. We think it’s the right direction for the franchise."
What statements like these mean for spin-off titles or sequels we can't say. But meanwhile, that upcoming DA2 DLC is "going to try and address some of the comments and try and provide the fans with the things they’re looking for, both the core fans and the new fans," according to Muzyka.
"We also think there’s an opportunity to listen to the core fans who loved Dragon Age: Origins to make sure they’re with us on the journey going forward. We need to work hard to make sure that happens, that that is the case," Muzyka said.
Well, I'm with you BioWare. I might need a Lyrium potion or two, but I'm with you. But what about you? Do you think Dragon Age 2 is too far removed from its predecessors or do you still hold hope in your heart?
