    EA pulls a “reverse Ubisoft,” makes some old BioWare DLC free

    news.movim.eu / ArsTechnica · Thursday, 14 July - 15:18

Don't worry, my sweet. BioWare Points can't hurt you anymore.

Single-player downloadable content for the PC versions of Dragon Age: Origins , Dragon Age II , Mass Effect 2 , and Mass Effect 3 will be available for free going forward. The change—which EA is announcing via apparent emails to some Origin users —comes alongside the pending shutdown of the BioWare Points digital currency system.

Those BioWare Points used to be the only way to purchase DLC for the developer's legacy titles. And because those points rarely went on sale , the price of that DLC relative to the heavily discounted base games would sometimes get a little ridiculous. As an angry change.org petition noted in 2015, "to purchase enough BioWare Points to own all DLC for the [Mass Effect] series would total $105; over 3 times the cost of all three base games."

In 2017, though, EA released moderately priced DLC bundles for its legacy BioWare titles, making it much more affordable and convenient to purchase story-based expansions and content packs that offer more character customization options.

Amazon is nearing a deal with Electronic Arts to develop a TV series for the Prime Video streaming service based on the beloved Mass Effect video game franchise .

The revelation can be found buried midway through a recent Deadline article about the performance of the recent Wheel of Time series premiere on Prime Video and Amazon's overall programming strategy.

Specifically, the piece dives into Amazon's focus on genres like fantasy to drive viewers and says that will be a focus for Prime Video moving forward. "You will see us continuing to invest in fantasy genre of all kinds, we have a genre-focused team on the ground in Studios who work tirelessly with our creative partners on those slates, and you can look forward to more," Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke told Deadline.

    No Man’s Sky confirms Mass Effect crossover, adds iconic Normandy SR-1 to fleet

    news.movim.eu / ArsTechnica · Friday, 21 May, 2021 - 13:00 · 1 minute

We at Ars Technica love crossover events in every pop-culture format, but they're arguably the best in video games, since they let fans settle playground arguments regarding which superhero or mascot could win in a fight. Still, that affection doesn't mean Ars must keep up with every single "dream" announcement about third-party characters in games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate , Soulcalibur VI , Tekken 7 , Mortal Kombat 11 , Samurai Shodown , Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid , and so on. We love them! Bring them on! But most IP crossovers don't warrant a headline. (Sorry, John "two games in one year" Rambo .)

In today's case, I've made an exception.

The latest update to No Man's Sky , which goes live sometime today, unlocks a very familiar spaceship inside NMS 's nearly infinite universe: the SSV Normandy SR-1, lifted from the first Mass Effect game. Yes, that's the SR-1, not the eventual SR-2. ( Tali would approve .) While Normandy doesn't come with a handy Mako for players to drop onto Hello Games' 18 quintillion planets , it does include an incredible S rating (seen in the above gallery). As far as No Man's Sky frigates go, the SR-1 is SR-number-one.
