Risen 2 DLC Already on Disc?

A forum thread on GameFAQs has indications that Risen 2: Dark Waters may be the latest game to ship with what's supposed to be future DLC included on the retail disc. The thread outlines the discovery, and spawns one of those heated discussions over the ethics of making content on the game disc dependant on a future. Thanks Blend Games.

While I appreciate that Bethesda is taking their time to create meaningful DLC, I don't appreciate that this DLC will be available on X360 for a month before being released on PS3 and PC. If you're going to do DLC, you should release it at the same time for all platforms. I know it's hard to resist Microsoft's bribes but if you truly respect your customers, you should avoid doing anything that screws them, such as timed platform exclusivity.
Given the amount of exclusive features on the PC - high resolution textures, Steam Workshop / mod support, DX11 support, etc - I don't have a problem with a small delay. Obviously I'd prefer it be released on all platforms simultaneously but I've taken for granted that anything involving Microsoft and gaming will end up screwing over customers.
