Oh boy, here we go again. EA released today the first DLC of Dragon Age 2 and to our surprise, Steam has removed completely the game from its list. That’s right, go ahead and try searching the game in Valve’s distribution service and you won’t find anything. This is Crysis 2 all over again.
According to various sources, this is because the Legacy DLC is sold via an in-game Store and not through Steam. Well, this is really confusing to say the least. If both Crysis 2 and Dragon Age 2 violated the same rule, how come other games like NFS: Shift 2 didn’t get removed?
Valve didn’t comment on that. However we should note that if both of them were removed due to the fact that the DLC isn’t sold via Steam, then Valve should re-evaluate those terms. Steam is basically a distribution system and nothing more. It doesn’t own those games so there shouldn’t be any problem at all with how the developers or publishers want to sell their DLC’s
