You bet they're considering putting coop in, though it won't be what you want. Imagine the blandness that is me3 co-op in the Dragon Age universe!

Undoubtedly, Bioware can't wait to tell you more about the co-op game mode they put in the game despite peoples protests or lack of interest. It'd be challenging for them to try and monetize you enjoying the actual game alongside a friend, so they'll avoid it. It certainly wouldn't be added for the games/players benefit.

FEEDBACK FTW!


I won't argue one way or the other about whether ME3's co-op is bland. It's horde mode, you either find it really fun or it gets boring in a hurry. What's pretty undeniable is that it has made EAware oodles and oodles of cash. There's been tons of people who bought packs with actual money. Sadly and stupidly.

3 days later: *Bioware massively nerfs new weapon, making it completely useless.*

Simpleton user:

FF 2 months.

Etc etc etc.


One of the guild wars 2 dudes was talking about balance the other day on their "state of the game" blog, and mentioned that though there's a ton of people crying overpowered and underpowered, they are going to let the game settle for awhile to see whether it's really the case or not. Ie, they're not going to play whack-a-mole every single time a new favorite weapon or class appears.

It made me think that the idiot at Bioware who is in charge of that (fagnan) should maybe go talk to the guys at Arenanet and see how balance SHOULD be done.

And now that the PC has become a barren wasteland where ME3 MP is concerned, NOW all of a sudden Bioware is buffing shit left and right, and fixing broken classes that people have been complaining about for five months etc. It's almost pathetically endearing. "Guys, please come back! Look, we've buffed stuff!"

Anyway, that went very off-topic. All in all, I wouldn't be surprised to see a multiplayer mode of some kind in DA3. With a cash shop behind it.
