IncGamers has learned that the Dragon Age franchise might very well become an MMO. Speaking to producer Fernando Melo, IncGamers' Tim McDonald asked whether or not the game developer would consider crossing the genre lines.
I don't think I'd like Dragon Age as an MMO
I can see potential...
I hate MMO's, grind-fests with no (interactive) story, and no impact on the world. Unless you play with friends, they are extremely boring IMO. EDIT: Also, it would suck losing the ability to pause the fight at any time and strategize/queue up actions.
No. Screw a MMO. The lore may be rich and all that, but once a fantasy MMO enters the market it's just WoW with new paint. Besides, make it an MMO and you likely lose many of the features that attracted the fanbase in the first place. Just concentrate on improving SP DA:O.
It certainly could do very well. Rich world to build from!
Not surprising, really. The world's definitely big enough and fleshed-out enough to support it. Really happy to hear that it's under consideration though.
Agreed, though hardly surprising it would be nice if one was created.
This is not a bad idea. Any competition in the MMO space is good competition!
WoW isn't actually the biggest MMO. However, it's an absolute dominant player in the subscription type MMO market.
It's popular, BioWare can make MMOs, of course it's a possibility.
Have they done the Dungeons & Dragons Online MMO?
No Bioware hasnt touched a D&D game since neverwinter 1 .
If they do I really hope the gameplay won't become a WoW/EQ2 clone...
I rather not , would of been nice to have more KotOR games instead of them going MMO route , don't let it happen to DA too. There are so many fantasy MMO already and more coming the market is saturated with these types of MMO.
If Bioware were to do a MMO from the Dragon Age story. I am pretty sure they would go their own way and not copy other MMOs entirely. I would expect a story driven game with your actions dictating the path you follow. I could see a awesome PVP game also as people would join the dark spawn. I see a lot of potential in the Dragon Age world, I would buy it.
MMO free-to-play would be acceptable I think, but if they charge, I'm out. Sorry. Plenty more games I can spend my time on that don't cost anything after I've spent my 50$.
Slow badly animated combat combined with a bad interface. It would totally fit in to the MMO catagory.
Please no. Making it an MMO would probably take away from the game's depth.
It's going to be KoTOR all over again... I'd be all for it, but no company does these MMO games right.. Most of them are exactly the same thing. - They're simple - Dull combat systems - Extremely repetitive - Boring after the first few hours - No real quests or missions - They are just about grinding, grinding, and more grinding... - Usually never really offer anything but combat - They take no skill to play - They're made just to rake in tons of cash What I want out of MMO's, is for them to be just like a real game for once.. but that probably won't happen for a long time. They're always made extremely simple and repetitive so everyone can play them, instead of aiming them at real gamers. The ONLY MMO I have ever been able to stick with is RuneScape. It's just different from everything else. It has more things to do than any other MMO's, and the quests are actually fun. You don't even have to train your combat skills if you don't want to. Most MMO developers/publishers care nothing about the players. It's all about the money.
