Publishers have gotten into the slightly irritating habit of teasing add-on content for a game that doesn't exist yet.
But hey, maybe it's just more incentive for potential consumers. Dragon Age II is set to drop in March and according to Eurogamer , EA has already spilled the beans on the first batch of DLC. It'll be called "The Exiled Prince" and we even get a teaser video to go along with the announcement. In this extra pack, a man named Sebastian Vael seeks revenge after his family met some sort of dire fate, and here's the best part: you can actually recruit the "noble archer" Vael for the "majority" of the story in the game. There is a caveat, though- we're only seeing purchase information for Xbox Live (560 Microsoft Points or $7); there's no word on the PSN cost. But maybe if you just pick up the Signature Edition, which includes a bunch of free content, including Vael's revenge mission, you won't have to worry.
Still, even though BioWare and EA are giving PS3 owners their just due by launching the Dragon Age sequel and Mass Effect 3 simultaneously for all intended platforms, it always seems as if their DLC gets to the Network last. We're sort of hoping that isn't the case for the next batch of BioWare greatness, but who knows… Sometimes, things just don't change.
