Dragon Age: Origins DLC Hits PS3 In "Late January"
BioWare and EA managed to release Dragon Age: Origins for both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on the same day, but PS3 owners won't get the same simultaneous treatment for the upcoming DLC.
The DLC package in question is entitled "Return to Ostagar" and it's bound to be a must-download for fans of the epic RPG. We've known for a while this was coming but we only had a vague "2010" estimate; now, according to Joystiq, the expansion will land on the Xbox 360 and PC on January 5. Unfortunately, it won't be available on the PlayStation Network until "later in January," but at least we know it's coming. For $5, we'll receive "the promise of the mighty arms and armor of the once great King Cailan," who also has a "top-secret political agenda." Origins is already a very long game - especially in this day and age - but for role-playing aficionados, it feels just about right, doesn't it? And if you've already completed it, this expansion will give you a good excuse to return to the battlefield. We probably shouldn't complain about the delay for the PS3 DLC but at the same time, we're forced to wonder...why? It would make more sense if they hadn't released the game simultaneously on multiple platforms, but they did, so...?
Well, anyway, I would expect several more hours (at least) of play time from this expansion and that should be worth the five bucks.
