@ OmicronEXE I meant the game is out not this article.Here it still says TBA,but I alredy completed it.
$5 DLC will add underground adventure to PC, PS3, and 360 editions of BioWare's high-fantasy role-playing game.
Though Dragon Age II has already been formally announced, its predecessor is still getting a steady stream of downloadable content updates. The latest, Golems of Amgarrak, was unveiled today on Electronic Arts-owned developer BioWare's official Web site.
The add-on will cost only $5 and will be available for the PlayStation 3, PC, and Xbox 360 on August 10. It will take players back to the dwarven realm of Orzammar--or more specifically, the labyrinth of caverns that lies beneath it. As in one of the storylines of the original game, players will have to face hulking golems created by rogue dwarven paragons.
Golems of Amgarrak is billed by BioWare as "an advanced challenge for even the most experienced adventurers" and will feature numerous puzzles and a "terrifying" new foe. It will let players either import their characters from Dragon Age or create all-new ones that will enter the game at a level high enough to encounter the new enemies.
Dragon Age II, a sequel to last year's hit action role-playing game Dragon Age: Origins, will ship in March 2011 for the same three systems as its forebearer. The sequel is set over a 10-year period, according to BioWare. It will see the player transform Blight survivor Hawke from "a destitute refugee to the revered champion of the land," with new combat mechanics for the game's three classes, as well as "an entirely new cinematic experience." Its debut trailer is due out on August 17.

@Rocker6 Their timing was just fine. If you had checked the top of the article, you'd have seen that this was posted on July 28th.
@howie1926 Oh really? So Darkspawn Chronicles did not cost 5$ and was not badly received? I just think that a low price point hints at a short game. But since the mood here is obviously positive, I'm not going to spoil it. I would be happy if the game turned out well.
This is good. I have the PC and 360 versions. PC one has better control, but the 360 was is still very good. I'll have to check out this DLC.
A few days ago i was thinkin while talking to Shale that i wanted a Golem DLC to delv deeper into the history and lore about Golems. And now thay are makin a Golem dlc. And i think this sounds cool and im lookin forward to playing this. And i wonder if thay will let us become Golems our selfs? That whould be interesting from a story perspective. Atleast i think so. But sins every singel game develepor have this thing about only letting players play as humans i dont think we will be able to become a golem. But i still can switch to Shale to play as besids my main character. =)
DAO is one of the best games of its year. And I still love it, I can't see anything on the Horizon of the same genre better than DAO. And DAO Awakening stands right behind DAO. Great expansion. I wish for more. I have uninstalled DAO for now, but I finished the game 2 times and went through 100% of Awakening expansion.
A lot of people here hated the deep roads so much, i enjoyed the looting and pillaging in the deep roads. What i really hated was the fade, especially in the mages circle when you fall asleep and have to travel back and forth shape shifting
im still loving origins, and will definatley be buying da 2 but i wont be buying this dlc, if it contained a new selectable party member i probably would, but just a new dungeon? no thanks
@alert0 I don't know who this "we" you are referring to are. That is fine if you are not intertested in it, but do not speak for everyone else.
Haven't we already made it clear that we're not interested in low-budget, 'have-a-few-more-hours-of-gameplay' type add-ons? I don't need another Awakening, but something mid-size, instead of bite-sized would be good. That said, I can't play DAO anymore. I've played that game toooo many times.
@Breyant Leliana's Song is very nice. 2-3 hours with fully voiced dialogues, and you discover something more about Leliana and Marjolaine. :)
I absolutely loved DA, but this DLC just isn't doing it for me. I stopped after the return to ostagar, because it just felt like I was paying for nothing. Can anyone tell me, is the newer stuff more worthwhile??
Good stuff. There's almost enough brand new DLC that I dont yet own available, to justify a nice big "play from the start" mission including all of the brand new content. Excellent, I'll look forward to building a new invincible Arcane Mage :)
i have all dlc but going to back in deep roads is bad idea :D, it was most booring part before anvil :D, still think i'l get this dlc.
Jeeez, more DLC. I'd rather they just concetrated on making new games, not these paltry mission packs.
ugh me too, hated the deep roads, and on my 2nd and a half play through im heading there soon... the fear is building!
The monotonous grinding of the Deep Roads still haunts me. Hopefully this is something a bit more interesting.
Well at this point i don't know if Bioware is going to release the GOTY Edition of this game taking in consideration that they're going to launch more DLC until the DA2 comes out.
Another DLC...Sweet. Now Gamespot needs to add this to the other DLCs on their game database...it isn't there yet.
I wonder if you can import characters from Awakenings? (just checked the bioware website) you can.. Ouch that has to be one sick game to cope with +30 level characters Oink!
I don't want challenging new content; I want the original game to be challenging. Bioware, I'll pay $10.00 for a Super-Nightmare mode because normal Nightmare mode is a cakewalk at later levels.
New personal strategy for Bioware games...don't buy at launch. Wait for price drop or GOTY editions that contain most or all of the DLC.
@jarrodwesley When your going to start playing those DLC add ons you'll be happy as a crack head that you got them.
The main campaign is already really damned long, and going through it with all the different party configurations available is more than enough for me. Besides I hear the DLC generally stinks and Dragon Age didn't quite stick in my mind well enough to buy all the DLC. I do wonder if the Shale DLC will be required in the next Dragon Age (I didn't DL it).
Might as well its not like there are any other games coming out, its summer time. its a dead zone for games
@Mr_Alexander Couldn't agree more. They are just milking it, and I'm not buying into it. Gearbox's DLC for Borderlands was pretty good, as was Bethesda's FO3 stuff. Mostly new assets and new enemies/areas/weapons. I'd like to see more of that.
The only problem I have with Bioware's strategy for DLCs is that they're each so small individually that I dont have any motivation to come back to a game that Ive already beaten (twice)
nice, i got 400MSP to spare. will be getting this. hope it's of higher quality than leliana's song. that was garbage.
This better take place in a new cave, I'm getting so tired of Bioware just recycling vanilla areas and adding a few new enemies in the DLC --Return to Ostagar - Ostagar at the vanilla beginning --Darkspawn Chronicles - Vanilla finale area AND slightly changed vanilla mission (Destroyed Denerim) --Leliana's Song - Denerim yet again Yep, that's all of the DLC, excluding the game launch one, 17 bucks total for recycled content with minor changes, sigh...
Shadow Broker DLC for Mass Effect, now this? You are spoiling me, Bioware. Keep up the high quality, and keep that sweet DLC train a-rollin'!
Playing Xbox One games on somebody else's console will also require a check-in every hour. Full Story
