BioWare activates its thirst trap card with a ‘romance bundle’ for a beloved Dragon Age character

BioWare video games have developed a fame for producing a few of the most interesting player-driven romances in video video games. In service to that fame, the BioWare retailer is stuffed with all kinds of bits and bobs designed to entice gamers to purchase issues that’ll show their love for a sure character. In its newest merchandise drop, the sensible bastards at BioWare are capitalizing on that devotion in a genius method with a “Romance bundle” devoted to Dragon Age Origins’ cheese-loving heartthrob Gray Warden, Alistair Theirin.

The bundle is a phenomenal wood field carved with Alistair’s portrait that accommodates a necklace; a recreation of the one you can give him to increase his approval of you. The bundle additionally comes with, based on the merchandise’s description, “just a little worn-edged love letter tucked on the backside compartment, wrapped in a skinny leather-based strap and hiding a secret message for Alistair” — and all for less than $60. I’ve the vapors simply considering of all of the dorky, however endearing issues contained within the letter.

Throw a rock within the gaming group and there’s a great likelihood you’ll hit somebody who had their sexual awakening by the hands of a BioWare character. The studio produces good, well-written companions that are easy to fall in love with; a lot in order that, along with understanding when to expect the next game, followers equally wish to know who they’ll stay up for romancing. Once I was first launched to BioWare with Dragon Age: Origins in 2009, I taught myself what mods had been and mod video games as a result of I used to be obsessed with Alistair and wished to eat each little bit of content material that featured him whether or not it was in-game or fan-made.

And that’s simply Dragon Age’s Alistair. If BioWare did this for all its companions? Whew! That’s what excites me about this launch essentially the most. BioWare is aware of what it has in these characters and has already confirmed it’ll exploit that useful resource for optimum impact. It sells Garrus Vakarian physique pillows for goodness sake. It is aware of precisely what it’s doing and what followers can pay for. Think about if the Liara-likers of the world may get a missive from her or if, Andraste forbid, the Solas-romancers acquired a message and his wolf-bone necklace? The tortured angst of these Lavellan characters can be sufficient to energy the world for a century. (And let me be clear, the Solas-romancers would delight in such angst.) BioWare would by no means have to launch one other recreation once more for it’ll have made a mint. Take my cash, BioWare. For this, you’ve earned it.
