Bioware has always done something that has annoyed the players of it's popular series Dragon Age which is the inclusion of DLC on disc. Normally this would sound like a great thing but Bioware always went about making you pay for the content that was always on disc, this in turn has left a sour taste in fans of the Role Playing games mouths. In a statement Bioware has stated that they will not be including any character DLC because the architecture of the latest game in the series Dragon Age Inquisition would require the DLC to be on Disc which we know the players will hate.
Here is the full statement made by Bioware's creative director for the new Dragon Age Mike Laidlaw:
Because of how deeply enmeshed in the system companion characters are, we can’t just add them on the fly, part of them has to be shipped on the disc. Which has led to criticism that we’re forcing people to pay for content they already own. It’s not the case, but we’ve decided this time to not go that route. There will be no DLC party members.
Bioware has already confirmed that there will be nine playable party characters with that being the limit. There has been no word on whether Bioware will continue to pursue this type of DLC model in the future so for know we will have to just wait and see.
Hopefully this will keep those die hard Dragon Age fans happy and will make there experiences with the game a whole lot better because they will not be frustrated.
