Free DLC for Mass Effect and Dragon Age Thanks to EA’s Decision to Discontinue the use of Bioware Points!


EA has begun sending an email to users who still have BioWare Points in their virtual wallets, alerting them that the currency will soon be phased out entirely. The message is included in the BioWare Points withdrawal email. The very greatest news of all is that this indicates that the downloadable content (DLC) for a variety of BioWare titles, which could previously only be purchased using its points, is now available for free. The unfortunate news is that as of right now, there is very little that you can purchase with your remaining BioWare Points, in the event that you still own any of them.

The aforementioned email, which was sent by PC Gamer, was the medium via which we first became aware of the news. You’ll be able to see the email in its full if you click on the screenshot that’s been linked to this article and that’s been posted to Reddit. Customers get an email from EA informing them that effective on October 11, 2022, they will no longer be able to utilize their BioWare Points as a substitute for cash while shopping in the Origin store. The firm continues by saying, “We are reaching out to let you know that.”

“To help you through this transformation, the vast majority of the downloadable content (DLC) that was previously exclusively accessible for purchase with BioWare Points is now available for free.” That implies that you don’t have to pay for any of the downloadable content packs for Mass Effect 2, Mass Effect 3, Dragon Age: Origins, or Dragon Age 2. Simply go to the games in your library, choose the additional material you want, and you should now see an option to “download it free.” That’s all there is to it.

The whole BioWare Points system has an air of dubiousness about it. It was necessary to have points in order to purchase DLC, and those points could only be purchased in packs of 800. However, the DLC for the games listed above did not cost multiples of 800, which meant that players would have to purchase multiple packs in order to complete their purchases and would be left with hundreds of points that they either couldn’t use or didn’t need. According to an email sent by EA, BioWare Points may be redeemed for the purchase of Mass Effect 3’s multiplayer expansion packs until October 11, 2022. This window of opportunity is open to those who still own BioWare Points.

There has never been a time that is more suitable than the current moment to play through all of the Mass Effect and Dragon Age games, as well as all of its downloadable material, in their entirety. This includes both the physical and digital versions of the games. Not only because a substantial amount of it is now accessible free of charge, but also since BioWare is currently working on new installments for both of these series, it is important to note that this is not the only reason why this is the case. After the launch of Dragon Age: Dreadwolf, a new Mass Effect video game will become available, not to mention an Amazon television series that will be based on the Mass Effect franchise that is now in the process of being developed.
