EA Asks About Interest in Dragon Age Tactics

A tweet from Mark Darrah offers a poll from the executive producer for the Dragon Age series gauging interest in a possible Dragon Age Tactics game (thanks GameInformer). He responds to a question with another tweet clarifying what type of game he means, saying "tactics as in a game like Fire Emblem or XCom." The poll offers respondents four choice: Yes!, No, Only on PC, and Only Mobile/Handheld.

On a side note, I think people are misunderstanding what "Only on PC" actually means. Bioware isn't proposing that the game be a PC exclusive. They're just asking if players have a preferred platform to play on.

Yeah, that's the idea I got as well. I assumed my vote to mean "I'll only play it on PC, but I don't care what platforms it comes out on." as opposed to "I will only play it if it's a PC exclusive."

I genuinely don't care, as long as the PC version doesn't suffer. Of course, if they make it for all platforms, the PC version has a very good chance of suffering.

Hey I love me some Pc Master race stuff like the next, but the PC elitism in terms of "if only a pc version". Seesh. Bioware do this, do whatever the fuck you want to do, if people like it they'll buy it if they don't they'll buy something else. Make it for whatever platforms you want, jeeze. You own me nothing.

Given how the "tactical" implementation was for Dragon Age Inquisition due to consolitis, I will take PC only any time and bitch as loud as I want about it. Got plenty of historical precedent to justify those concerns too

Given XCOM 2's performance issues on high-end PCs, I seriously doubt they'll be able to get the game running on tablets any time soon.

There's nothing in the game remotely justifying the level of performance we are currently getting. Another day, another untested product for me to beta.

Yeah, we really need to be whining about raw mouse input for a tactics turn based game! That is almost exactly the kind of complaint I was referring to, thanks!~ Crazy

I'd rather a tactics style game controlled through a gamepad. I don't want to sit at my desk holding my mouse all the time. Sometimes I just want to slouch back in my chair and relax. I get that ports make 'concessions' but there are battles worth fighting and things worth complaining about, this is not one of them. Do we need an FOV slider for a game played through an isometric camera too? Just because some other ports left it out in the past? No, of course not.

FF:Tactics style would be awesome, but this PC vs console nonsense... jesus guys... get over it already. What are you gaining by having "mouse-precision" in a turn based "click the button and wait" game? Get your heads out of your butts lol

It's almost like you've forgotten a good chunk of the ports from the past 15 years. Many cross platform games get concessions made for design purposes. Sometimes those directly affect gameplay and other times they're tertiary. You joke about mouse precision but I've encountered many games with improper mouse support like analog emulation because they were ported like shit after being designed with more than one platform in mind. Hell EA and Bioware have even done it before. So it is only natural people get their back up when they hear about it. Besides it was a poll and people were picking their favorite platform, PC only was an option. So the head up ass thing? Right back at you.

It's like they forget XCom is on ipad... and I'm sure XCom 2 will be in a few months. I bet the only reason it isn't out right now is there's zero way they could sell it at $60 on that device.

Given XCOM 2's performance issues on high-end PCs, I seriously doubt they'll be able to get the game running on tablets any time soon.

Zero interest. Now, if Bio/EA wants to repackage the entire Mass Effect series, including all DLC? I'd be down for that.


It baffles me why EA won't let them do an HD remake for the entire ME series. With the way HD remakes are selling, and the way fans have been clamoring to be able to play ME on the current gen of consoles, it seems like it would be a no-brainer, especially since they already have all 3 games running on PC code anyway.

EA already released Mass Effect Trilogy and made sure not to include any of the DLC. I'm guessing that's why they don't want to do a remastered trilogy. Why give people three remastered games with all the DLC for a measly $60 when you can charge them $80+ just for the DLC itself?

On a side note, I think people are misunderstanding what "Only on PC" actually means. Bioware isn't proposing that the game be a PC exclusive. They're just asking if players have a preferred platform to play on.

That last thing I'm jonesing for these days is another flat panel pc game, dime a dozen and that includes tactical tb games. Tons of them now. The indy scene has blown selection wide open. I'm more in a paralysis in terms on what to choose to play next, I struggle with this.

Actually Twitter use is in decline. You've held out long enough to see it both rise and fall. It peaked in the summer of 2014. 15% of Americans uses Twitter, which is still a very impressive number, but not in comparison to Facebook at 58%. LinkedIn, Snapchat, Instagram, even Google+ have higher penetration percentages than Twitter.

Personally I find it very difficult to get excited about anything Bioware is planning these days, their last few games have been shall we say underwhelming to say the least.

Would I play a Dragon Age Tactics game?
Only on PC.

Let me add: I have no problem with DA: Tactics being produced for PC and mobile and consoles (IIRC XCOM was also released as a mobile game?), but I don't play games on consoles because I will never buy one and I don't play games on my mobile because of the tiny screen. So it's not a pc elitist thing, okay?

And I neither tweet nor Facebook, so you get my answer here.

Only on PC vote for me as well, no twitter account.

We're really showing our age, I think, with basically zero percent of the bluesnews people using what's considered a common social program these days.

But I'd also vote more for a true sequel to Dragon Age:Origins, not the more action oriented actual sequels that exist so far.
