In-game currency will not be transferable or redeemable after server shut down

Electronic Arts has informed Dragon Age Legends players that the game’s servers will be cut off in about thirty days.

Customers have been told their in-game currency will not be redeemable or transferable to other BioWare Social games, but EA has promised it will provide users with a free download version of Dragon Age Legends soon after the social game goes offline.

Dragon Age Legends launched in the first calendar quarter of 2011 and seized on the publicity provided by the boxed product Dragon Age Origins 2.

At the time of going to press, the social game has about 110,000 monthly active users, though there appears to be no signs of a sharp decline.

A Bioware spokesperson said “the unfortunate reality is that Dragon Age Legends doesn’t make enough revenue to sustain itself”.

The games virtual currency packages cost as much as $99. A fire-sale of all virtual items is underway for the final four-week period.
