The online server issues plaguing the recently-released “SimCity” could be negatively impacting more than one video game published by Electronic Arts. According to a report by Cinema Blend on March 9, several gamers are planning to organize a boycott of the always-online DRM procedure by canceling their pre-orders for the upcoming “Dragon Age 3.” You can check out some images from the latest video game of the “Dragon Age” franchise in the slideshow at the top of this article.
“SimCity” came out for the PC platform in North America on March 5. Several connection issues prevented gamers from playing the game as the city simulation title requires a constant online connection in order to function. Because of the “SimCity” backlash, Electronic Arts ended up giving a free game to those that were impacted.
“Dragon Age 3” was first announced late last year. The role-playing game will be developed by Bioware using the same Frostbite 2 game engine that powered “Battlefield 3.” The release date and platforms for “Dragon Age 3” have not yet been officially announced by Electronic Arts.
