Dragon Age Inquisition Has No Place for BioWare Points

While the release date of Dragon Age Inquisition is three months away, most of us are weighing things up in order to get ready for one of the biggest RPGs of the year.

However, if you were hoarding BioWare Points with an intention of using them in DAI, don’t. Because the developer has announced that they won’t be supported in the game.

The officials announced through the BioWare Forums yesterday:

“Based on user feedback, beginning with Dragon Age: Inquisition, BioWare Points will no longer be supported as a means to purchase DLC. This applies to PC or Mac only, as consoles will continue to support their respective methods of purchasing downloadable content. Instead of using BioWare Points, PC and Mac users can purchase future DLC directly through Origin, using currency.”

However, that doesn’t mean existing fans of BioWare who have been using BioWare Points will be left with a bagful of points that have been rendered useless. In fact, they have also announced that the points will still be usable with regards to other BioWare titles that have already been supporting their use.

Not just that, the developer also shared a list of existing titles that will continue to support BioWare Points’ use. Here it is:

  • Dragon Age: Origins
  • Dragon Age 2
  • Mass Effect 2
  • Mass Effect 3

BioWare Points are, in a layman’s language, the PC alternative of Microsoft Points for the Xbox Live; just that they are limited to BioWare titles.

While this is not an avalanche of a news, it sure clarifies what you should have at hand if you wish to get your hands on those DLCs is Dragon Age Inquisition.
