Dragon Age Witch Hunt DLC Released

The Dragon Age: Origins Website has the release of the new Witch Hunt DLC for Dragon Age: Origins, BioWare's fantasy-themed RPG. The price for the PC edition is 560 BioWare points, which is $7.00 cash money (USD). Here's word on what that'll get you: "The dreaded Archdemon has been slain and the advance of the darkspawn halted by a lone, heroic Grey Warden. The kingdom rejoices, but at least one question remains: what happened to Morrigan? The sorceress joined the Wardens cause, but it is said her true purpose was not revealed until the eve of the last battle. She vanished into the shadows, and while rumors claimed she crossed over the mountains into Orlais no trace of her path could be found. She was never heard from again... until now. Nearly a year has passed since the Archdemon's death, and word has reached the Wardens that Morrigan has returned to Ferelden. She has been sighted in the southern wilderness where she was first encountered. Is it truly her? If it is, then why is she here and what secret does she carry with her? The Warden heads into the forest to find out and tie up this last loose end once and for all."

Aside from having first-hand experience with how DLC is "created," it seems fairly logical to assume that any DLC that is ready at a game's launch (like the pre-order DLC I mentioned) was in fact finished long before the game went gold. After all, DLC content has to be rated by the various rating boards AND tested by QA AND pass through MS & Sony certification before it can be sold.

What, do you really think that all those Mafia 2 pre-order outfits and vehicles were created at the last minute? You may like the concept of DLC but you'd have to be pretty blind not to see how publishers are exploiting it.

As I said, that doesn't mean it was cut from the game. Pre-order bonuses are usually over-powered items that are not in the main game at all and were certainly developed on the side to be pre-order items. Sure, they were done when the main game was, but that does not make them cut content as they were always intended to be on the side. Personally I ignore them, even when I get them legitimately, as they ruin the balance of the game.

What I am saying is the idea of someone having a complete game, then shortly before gold master saying "wait, wait... cut out this mission string, we'll sell it as DLC," is mostly fictional.
