First Dragon Age II DLC Announced
EA and BioWare have announced the first bit of DLC for their upcoming sequel, Dragon Age II. The DLC will be titled "The Exiled Prince".
The first trailer that was released for the DLC shows an archer, Sebastian Vael, who is looking for revenge after the murder of his family. You will join Sebastain in the middle of his quest for vengeance. Sebastian is the sole survivor and heir to the throne and you must help him regain his rightful spot in the kingdom.
In addition to Sebastian's side-quest you will be able to recruit him to join your party for most of Dragon Age II.
“Our goal for the Dragon Age II DLC is to extend Hawke’s journey and the Dragon Age universe by introducing additional characters with meaningful storylines and intense, dynamic missions,” said Mark Darrah, the game’s executive producer. “Not only will ’The Exiled Prince’ allow players to experience Sebastian’s powerful revenge story, but they will also be able to utilize him as a follower throughout Hawke’s rise to power in Dragon Age II.”The Exiled Prince will be available day one and will be a three-mission side quest.
If you pre-order the game before January 11 you will receive a free upgrade to the Dragon Age II Signature Edition which features extra content including The Exiled Prince DLC. After January 11, the DLC will cost you $7.00 or 560 MS points.
Dragon Age II is out March 8 in the US and March 11 in the UK for the PS3, 360, and PC.
