First Dragon Age 2 DLC Announced
EA has announced that it will have a DLC pack available for Dragon Age 2 when the game hits stores on March 8.
Titled “The Exiled Prince,” the DLC will be free to purchasers of the Signature Edition of the game. Those plebeians who purchase the Standard Edition will need to fork out an additional $7.00 (560 MS Points) to grab a copy of the content.
Don’t forget that if you pre-order Dragon Age 2 before January 11th, you get a free upgrade to the Signature Edition. More details about the upgrade, and what’s in the Signature Edition can be found on the official Dragon Age 2 website.
We’ve got the trailer for this DLC below (download it here), but before you watch it, I want to add something here.
One of my pet peeves with the gaming industry today is the growing trend of “Day One” DLC. Releasing DLC on the same day a game launches isn’t adding value for the customer, it’s making them feel like the developer intentionally kept content off the disc in order to sell it to them later. With the price of games sitting at $50 – $60, taking away the perception of value from the customer is a bad move for the industry as a whole, and it needs to stop.
OK, now go watch the trailer.
