Blake Jorgensen has clarified his previous comments stating that all future Electronic Arts video games, including the upcoming “Dragon Age 3” and “Mass Effect 4,” will be featuring micro-transaction DLC. According to a report by GamesIndustry International on March 6, the CFO of the company revealed that he actually meant that all their mobile free-to-play mobile games will be implementing the feature. You can check out some images of “Dragon Age 3,” as well as some screens from “Mass Effect 3,” in the slideshow at the top of this article and the clarification statement from Blake Jorgensen below (courtesy of GamesIndustry International):
I made a statement in the conference along the lines of 'We'll have micro-transactions in our games' and the community read that to mean all our games and that's really not true. All of our mobile games will have micro-transactions in them, because almost all of them are going to a world where they are play for free.
The development of “Dragon Age 3” and “Mass Effect 4” were both announced by Bioware in late 2012. The two role-playing games will be using the Frostbite 2 game engine, which was also used for “Battlefield 3 in addition to the upcoming “Battlefield 4.”
Electronic Arts have not yet announced the release dates or platforms for “Dragon Age 3” and “Mass Effect 4.”
