First Dragon Age II DLC “Legacy” launching July 26

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?

    Wait till Mass Effect 3 comes out. Its gonna make DA2 look like a fantastic sequel in comparison.

    Oh yay... I can't wait for more mindless repetition and the ridiculously painful feeling that despite in DA:O we killed the Arch Demon, something only a grey warden can supposedly do, the "most powerful darkspawn" yet can only be beaten by Hawke, who can either be a joker, an angelic hero or a horrible person. Really, BioWare made this bad. -.-

    I adore Dragon Age 2, in spite of its initial shortcomings. I'll definitely be buying this DLC.

    @shadowreaper I'm guessing you're talking about consoles, right? On PC, DA:O was one of the greatest RPG's to come out in years. Its console port was...ell let's just say lacking. To those who played on PC, DA2 was a definite disappointment.

    Why is everyone hating on DA2 so much. This game was so fucking amazing. Origins is trash if anything. I actually had fun playing through DA2 unlike Origins.

    Can we get some DLC that makes the game less casual garbage?

    Sold this crap a couple days ago. Never going back.

    Wow, the writer of this article sure hates Dragon Age II. It had it's flaws, but it was still a pretty good game. I've always admired GamesRadar for the fact that you typically have people who are excited about certain games write the news stories, but the vitriol in this article is out of character for this site.

    I'll probably give this a shot. I found that I quite liked Dragon Age 2. It was definitely flawed, but still a lot of fun.

    Complete with buggy achievements no doubt. I think I may take a pass on this one unless I hear really great things about it.
  • mockraven - July 8, 2011 8:27 p.m.

    I want to be excited, but I'm also a little dubious since there was so much repetition in DA2. If there's even half as much recycling as what was done in the primary game, then I'm not interested. Here's hoping, though.

    Awesome i cant wait to pick this up ^^
