Come March, You'll Never Be Able To Play Darkspore Again

At the end of last year, EA made the announcement that the servers for 2011’s Darkspore would be shutting down on 1 March, 2016, rendering the game unplayable. Well folks, that date is just days away, so if you’re feeling nostalgic, now’s the time to fire it up.

In mid-2013, EA removed Darkspore from Steam, though the company said it would continue to provide support. Despite retaining a product page, the title was also removed from EA’s own store, Origin at some point along the line.

Because the game requires an official server to operate, outside of third-party attempts to come up with an alternative, Darkspore won’t be playable past the 1 March deadline.

So, if it’s been collecting dust in your games library, you have until Tuesday next week to play for old time’s sake.
