Dragon Age: Origins Day One DLC Plans

GameSpot has details on plans for DLC for Dragon Age: Origins, which they say will be released for the PC and Xbox 360 editions on November 3, the same day the game goes on sale, while the PS3 edition of the DLC will come later in the month when BioWare's RPG is released for that platform. There will be no fewer than three pieces of DLC, one being the previously announced free Blood Armor, the second is The Stone Prisoner, free with new purchases of the game, and the third is Warden's Keep, for which they have a teaser trailer. Here's word on that:

BioWare today announced that Dragon Age: Origins will get its first downloadable expansion on day one. Called the Warden's Keep, the DLC will add a dungeon-based quest to the game along with six new abilities, a variety of items, and a base where players can trade with merchants. It will feature a supernatural storyline set in an ancient--and possibly haunted--fortress once used as a redoubt by the Grey Wardens, the ancient order at the center of Origins' main storyline. (A magic suit of Grey Warden armor will be one of the items in the add-on.)

The Warden's Keep will be available for MSP 560 ($7) on Xbox Live Marketplace and $7 on the PC on November 3. It will cost the same price on the PlayStation Store when the PlayStation 3 version of Dragon Age goes on sale later in November.

Yeah, it really is cool seeing a representative of Bioware checking in here. But that being said, you really are wasting your time here trying to appease the majority of this bunch. This is part of the wine and cheese corner of the gaming world. Uptight, jaded, & pessimistic.

I'm a supporter of dlc. It adds to the longevity of the game and am willing to fork out an additional $5 or $10 dollars along the way to experience what extra it brings to the game. That said, I wouldn't buy just any dlc, it has to be some worthwhile content involved, not just some garbage hobbled up and thrown together to make a quick buck.

Most of this backlash is just coming from the unusual event of dlc being available on day 1. I'm with some of the others when they say this may have been better received if it was delayed maybe 4-6 weeks. Doesn't seem very -I smell shit while I'm typing this. Gotta go.
