BioWare has announced the date for the first real Dragon Age II DLC adventure. The lazily-named Legacy content will be available on July 26, and offers players the chance to venture outside the Dragon Age II locale of Kirkwall. It's playable from any point in the main campaign, so if you fancy taking a break from the game's oppressive gloom and relentless grimness, Legacy will let you “uncover the harsh truth about the Hawke lineage” while coming “face to face with an ancient horror.” Well, you knew what you were getting into when you bought the game.
The Legacy DLC – which will be $9.99 on PlayStation 3 or cost 800 BioWare/Microsoft points – includes new exterior and interior locations including a Grey Warden prison. There's also a new, customizable class-specific weapon in it for you. Time will tell whether fans of brooding fantasy – starved for new episodes of Game of Thrones, done with The Witcher 2, and contemplating the terrifying possibility of venturing out into the regular-people world – will be able to hold out until July 26. Are you looking forward to the new content?
