DRAGON AGE 2: LEGACY DLC Coming July 26, 2011


The world of Dragon Age 2 will expand on July 26, 2011 with the first downloadable content mission pack since the game's release.

While aspiring Hawkes in the gaming world may be at various points in their journey to become Champion of Kirkwall, all will be able to play the DLC pack, called Dragon Age 2: Legacy, directly upon release. It delves into Hawke's backstory, rather than expanding upon the end of the game.

BioWare's official announcement teases at new darkspawn (the main cannon fodder enemy set of the world), plust a connection to the Grey Wardens, the main characters of Dragon Age: Origins who are enigmatic at best in Dragon Age 2. Does this mean Hawke's lineage is connected with the Wardens, or even the DA:O playable character? Fans can find out when the DLC is made available on PC/Mac, Xbox 360, and PS3 for $9.99 or 800 points on July 26. Official BioWare info follows, and click through the gallery at the right for more images.


Targeted by a vicious criminal cartel that are hunting "the blood of the Hawke," you must put an end to their relentless attacks. Leave Kirkwall, and journey to an ancient Grey Warden prison in order to find the source of the aggression and uncover the harsh truth about the Hawke lineage. Playable from any point in the DAII campaign, face all new darkspawn, forge a powerful new weapon and come face to face with an ancient horror.
