Electronic Arts and Valve announced a partnership in October of 2019 that would see the publisher’s offerings return to the Steam platform. Initially this included new releases like Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order but on June 4th, 2020 several older EA titles returned to sale on Steam including Dragon Age II and an all-inclusive DLC package.
Original delisting details follow.
Dragon Age II was delisted from Steam on July 27th, 2011 due to EA’s handling of in-game downloadable content. In a follow-up on IGN.com, EA explained that “Steam has adopted a set of restrictive terms of service which limit how developers interact with customers to sell downloadable content”. The statement added that “we hope to work out an agreement to keep our games on Steam” but Dragon Age II never returned to sale on the platform. According to SteamDB it was officially and finally removed on November 26th, 2014.
Dragon Age II and its DLC remains available on PC through EA’s Origin.com and on physical media and to download on consoles as of this writing.
