Dragon Age and Mass Effect DLC are now free as EA bids farewell to BioWare Points

Dragon Age and Mass Effect fans can get free DLC for the games. These include Mass Effect 2, Mass Effect 3 and Dragon Age Origins. This does not include the first Mass Effect game, Mass Effect Andromeda, or Dragon Age Inquisition.

You might wonder why DLCs are now being offered for free, and that’s because EA is phasing out BioWare points, according to a recent email

BioWare is communicating to players that the Origin Store will no longer accept BioWare Points as of October 11, 2022. Other currencies such as Crystal and Platinum are not affected. BioWare sent a statement via email that was shared on Reddit:

We are contacting you to inform you that as of October 11, 2022, BioWare Points will no longer be available as a form of currency in the Origin Store. To support you through this change, most DLC (downloadable content) that was previously only purchasable with Bioware Points is now available for free. It includes DLC for the following titles: Dragon Age II, Dragon Age: Origins, Mass effect 2, [and] ii (excluding multiplayer packs).

For the next 90 days, you can use your BioWare Points to purchase multiplayer packs Mass effect 3. After October 11, 2022, multiplayer packs can only be redeemed using your earned in-game credits. Don’t worry – you’ll still have access to any content previously purchased using Bioware Points

This means you can still use your BioWare Points up until the cut-off date and any previous content purchases with points will still be accessible in your account. So use your points while you can and grab those DLCs if they’ve been missing from your collection before.

What’s next for BioWare?

It was last year when EA combined all the Mass Effect games into one neat remastered package in Mass Effect Legendary Edition. However, if you previously owned them separately and didn’t get the DLC, this can be a great way to pick them up.

The game has been teased with artwork, revealing some interesting details. For Mass Effect, the next tile is underway but the official title has not been shared yet. So far there are snippets of teaser images and a short trailer.
