Muzyka: New Dragon Age II DLC to “address” feedback

Friday, 17th June 2011 10:57 GMT By Johnny Cullen

BioWare boss Ray Muzyka has said that upcoming DLC for Dragon Age II will take note of the feedback from the game after its release.

It follows comments last week by EA Games boss Frank Gibeau, where he said that the sequel “lost some fans.”

“We have some new DLC that’s upcoming that’s 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,” Muzyka told EG.

“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 didn’t mention what the contents of said DLC would be, though. Dragon Age II launched back in March for PS3, 360 and PC.

    Is it going to make any of your choices mean a goddamn thing to story at all? Or maybe patch in more than the one dungeon you keep going round in different directions with doors blocking parts you walked through not 10 minutes before? Or is it going to tell the conversation wheel to feck off back to MassEffect where it belongs and reinstate real dialogue choices where you actually say what you have just chosen, leading to an actual conversation, rather than being a pussy/prick and the next scripted ‘awesome’ thing happens when I press a button?
    On an unrelated note, the phrase “the core and more” is some of the more odious marketing double-speak I’ve heard recently.

    @1 lol I agree 100%

    I was going to say is the DLC going to change the entire game? Because it is a piece of junk compared to Origins, you want to listen to feedback, go back to the way it was when there wasn’t as much wrong with the game and build off that not radically change everything about it and try to make it a medieval fantasy Mass Effect…are you that lazy that your idea of innovation was copying Mass Effect? Dragon Age III better go back to its roots, improve on Origins, scrap the art style and go back to the unique hero and maybe integrate some co-op in there (not a co-op mode, but co-op canpaign capability)

    How about fixing the Epic trophy glitch while you’re at it!

    Gonna add an overhead camera for the Origins fans? Probably not.
    Gonna add new areas and locations to alleviate the environment reuse problem? Doubt it. Gonna make it so your choices matter? That would break the game. Gonna add a story that’s interesting and engaging to adults? Sorry, the good story guys are still polishing up TOR. Gonna add tactics to the battles so you have to do more than mash one button? That would alienate our new casual audience!

    So yeah, I can’t really see how any DLC is gonna fix DA2, seriously that shit was garbage.

    “Gonna add new areas and locations to alleviate the environment reuse problem? Doubt it.”

    Uh there was concept art released for 4 new areas for the next DLC.

    “Gonna add tactics to the battles so you have to do more than mash one button?”

    Apparently someone never played Nightmare there is no mashing especially if you played on the PC. Try harder.

    “So yeah, I can’t really see how any DLC is gonna fix DA2, seriously that shit was garbage.”

    Subjective even though they did reuse the areas a lot even with the time that was pressed on them they made a game that was far better than the original. The tone system was a fantastic idea and I hope that they bring that into ME3. The game still sold over a million units so the franchise still has legs to go on.

    “Sorry, the good story guys are still polishing up TOR.”

    Actually only two people from the writing team of Bioware went to TOR and they came from the ME team so maybe you should try harder on your bashing.

    A wild fanboy appears!

    No, I didn’t play on nightmare, why should I? DA2 only had 2 speeds, stupidly easy button mashing or stupidly hard, nothing in between.

    Those four new areas won’t be shoe-horned into the full campaign the mind numbing and inexcusable area re-use will not be fixed no matter what lies you tell yourself.

    “The tone system was a fantastic idea and I hope that they bring that into ME3″

    Seriously? None of your choices mattered for dick, that’s what you consider “fantastic”? Hooked gamers said it best “The dialogue is so simple that it could be replaced by a choice that you make at the beginning of the game: “Do you want to be a compassionate, humorous, or obnoxious character?” After that choice, you would only have to watch the dialogue scenes play through with no player-input at all.”

    “Actually only two people from the writing team of Bioware went to TOR and they came from the ME team so maybe you should try harder on your bashing.”

    Even if that were true it would only makes things look even worse, Their whole team worked on the story and this steaming pile of blandness was the best they could do? I think I’d rather believe that their best talent was working elsewhere.

    Tone system has nothing to do with the choices it still was a neat system no game has done that before with VA you could really have your own character.

    I am a fanboy because I enjoyed the game? Granted the repeating maps was disappointing but BG2 did the exact same thing and I had no issues there. I know DA2 had flaws but to say it was complete shit is moronic.
