As you may have noticed if you were paying attention to my posts, I'm extremely skeptical about Dragon Age Origins in a lot of ways. Well, here's one more thing to be wary about :
Launch day DLC is always a bad sign. They have this content ready and should be including it in the product. Instead they've already planned to milk their customers for the extra money. Say what you will but Bioware does seem to have changed since being bought by EA. The marketing angle of Dragon Age, the platforms, and now paid DLC even on PC...
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.
