Dragon Age: Origins won't Tweet, but the new single-player game will network console and PC gamers in unusual ways. That's because the games creators at BioWare believe that solo role-playing games should no longer be lonely experiences.
"One of the things for us that was really important and we're clearly seeing it on PC games - and coming across to consoles - is basically having a social experience of some sort," Dragon age's online producer Fernando Melo told Kotaku in a phone interview late last week.
"That has traditionally been the domain of a multiplayer experience."
Not anymore, according to BioWare.
The PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Dragon Age: Origins will all connect to Bioware's new "Social" website, which will collect data from player's games. The type of data gathered differs between the console and PC versions, but all will share some features.
