Bioware have revealed the first piece of downloadable content for Dragon Age 2. Its called The Exiled Prince and will contain three brand new missions and a new companion named Sebastian Vael. More on that below.
“The Exiled Prince” introduces the noble archer Sebastian Vael, with players joining him in the middle of his quest to avenge the brutal murder of his family. Sworn to the priesthood as a boy, Sebastian is forced to re-enter the viper’s nest of princely politics when his family is brutally murdered, leaving him as the sole surviving heir. Banding together with Sebastian and his unshakable loyalty and excellent aim, players will choose to either avenge Sebastian’s murdered family to reclaim his title or direct his holy vengeance on their enemies in Kirkwall. In addition to this action-packed storyline, players will also be able to enlist Sebastian as a follower throughout a majority of Dragon Age II.
Price wise the DLC will be free to those of you who pre-ordered the BioWare Signature Edition of Dragon Age 2. Those who didn’t will have to purchase the DLC separately for 560 Microsoft Points.
Dragon Age II will be available on the PlayStation 3 , Xbox 360 and PC in North America on March 8, 2011 and in Europe on March 11, 2011.
