A Dragon Age: Origins server outage left many players unable to enjoy their merry questing this weekend, but the cause of the server crash has yet to be indentified. Whilst Bioware are hard at work trying to find what caused the problem, speculation would have you believe the crashes were to do with DRM problems.
Bioware commented on its forums that “over the April 9, 2011 weekend, some of our Dragon Age: Origins content servers experienced an as yet unidentified failure. As a result, users began to experience error messages when attempting to access their downloadable content, indicating that the DLC was unauthorized. We apologize for the inconvenience and are currently investigating and working to resolve the issue on our end.”
Whatever the issue may be, let’s hope it gets fixed soon.
