Dragon Age II was missing a few key elements that kept it from elite status in our mind…but multiplayer wasn't one of those elements.
I mean, who really cares? Still, according to the rumor mill in the latest edition of the Official PlayStation Magazine , BioWare is currently working on Dragon Age III , "complete with an all-new multiplayer mode." According to the "Inside Whispers" part of the publication, the hint reads- "More elf sexy time! Dragon Age 3 is on the way, with an added multiplayer component." Most of the time, we just say, "hey, isn't that neat" and move on our way. But recently, with the other rumor that says Sony Santa Monica might include a multiplayer feature in the next God of War , we're starting to get a little irritated. Factor in the latest downloadable titles that claim to have single-player campaigns (that you either can't finish alone or take less than an hour to complete), and that irritation grows. RPGs, with the exception of MMORPGs, are single-player experiences.
Am I the only one who sees it that way? Or are there many role-playing fans out there who would welcome a multiplayer addition to DAIII? Personally, I just want my freakin' explorable world map and individual armor pieces for my companions.
