Jade Empire is one of BioWare's seemingly forgotten franchises, a martial arts roleplaying game that appeared on the original Xbox and PC, and whose sequel has maddeningly beenand over and over..
Over the weekend, though, Electronic Arts teased Jade Empire in a different way, listing the game as one of its free promotions. Gamers who tried to add it to their library haven't been able to.
Those who asked Electronic Arts received the standard "We're investigating this" answer:
@KyleMHilliard We are investigating the issue, Kyle. I appreciate your patience in the meantime. ^EC— EA Support (@AskEASupport) November 15, 2015
Before long, the game was back at its normal $14.99 price without any real explanation.
The probable reason is that Jade Empire was accidentally listed as free, and was never intended as a promotion at this time, since Origin didn't advertise any deal. The real question is this: is there a Jade Empire promotion coming up and someone accidentally jumped the gun? Or was it just a complete mistake?
