EA responds to Dragon Age II Steam disappearance, blames Valve’s “restrictive” TOS

Another day, another EA-related Steam vanishing act. This time around, it was Hawke that flew the coop. But why? Sorry, folks: no final act plot twist here. Valve’s new DLC policy has reared its ugly head again. On the upside, though, EA’s now seeking to “work out an agreement” to keep Valve from sinking more of its flagship titles.

“Unfortunately, Steam has adopted a set of restrictive terms of service which limit how developers interact with customers to sell downloadable content. No other download service has adopted this practice. Consequently some of our games have been removed by Steam,” EA said in a statement to IGN.

“We hope to work out an agreement to keep our games on Steam.”

So then, 457th verse, same as the first. Does anybody know the name of a good couples counselor?
