Dragon Age 2 to include bonus DLC pipeline
Unsurprisingly, Dragon Age 2 will feature some manifestation of "Project Ten Dollar" (an incentive to buy EAs games new) akin to Mass Effect 2s bonus content delivery system, the Cerberus Network. "We will be doing that," executive producer Mark Darrah confirmed to Joystiq during a recent press preview of the game. "We havent announced whats in it, but itll definitely be something kind of in that Cerberus vein where there will be additional content."
Speaking of Dragon Age 2 DLC in general (and not necessarily just the freebie content), Darrah said we could expect to see a boost in quality over the Dragon Age: Origins DLC, which prompted complaints about a limited scope and areas being recycled from the main game. He assured us that the sequels add-ons would be more unique: "What were doing with the DLC in Dragon Age 2 is making it larger; so itll be bigger teams, more unique environments, more unique creatures -- so that it gets the attention it deserves to get."
BioWare intends to offer free DLC to early birds as well, with pre-orders of Dragon Age 2 being upgraded to the BioWare Signature Edition at no extra charge. Dragon Age 2 will launch on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on March 8, 2011.
