Dungeon Siege III DLC: New Content, Gameplay Upgrades
Dungeon Siege III is a solid, lengthy, entertaining dungeon crawler, and it definitely deserves some extra content.
Square Enix has announced the first piece of DLC for Obsidian's RPG; it's Treasures of the Sun, and it'll launch in October on the PlayStation Network, Xbox Live service, and Steam.
For $9.99, you can grab "several additional hours of gameplay" thanks to a new plot arc and more quests, enemies, and loot. The new environment will be the Aranoi Desert; as players set off in search of a lost Legion hero, they will find a forgotten abbey that holds an ancient secret.
Plus, the developer has revealed a few refinements and additions to the gameplay, which might be the biggest reason to pick up Treasures of the Sun. Check it out:
New abilities: Players will be able to attain mastery of the arcane through powerful new attack, defense and healing abilities.
Level up to 35: DUNGEON SIEGE III: TREASURES OF THE SUN will further power up players by raising DUNGEON SIEGE III's existing level cap from 30 to 35.
More monsters and items: Players will encounter new monsters in the Aranoi Desert-including mummies and giant skeletons-and will find more powerful items, adding to the thousands already available in DUNGEON SIEGE III.
Reallocate Talent & Proficiency Points: Players can reallocate points spent in Proficiencies and Talents, enabling changes to character customization throughout the campaign.
New Enchanting System: Transmuting items now gives players chances at gaining powerful new Vials that allow them to enhance their weapons and armor through the DLC's new enchanting system.
Dungeon Siege III really is the closest you're going to get to to Baldurs Gate: Dark Alliance this generation. It has a few issues but some of the combat will be enhanced thanks to this DLC, and the extra content is always worth a look.
