Just because the first expansion for Dragon Age: Inquisition--Jaws of Hakkon--launched first on Xbox One and PC, doesn't mean it's not coming to PlayStation 4. The content will indeed be released on Sony's new console, and BioWare is planning to announce more details about the PS4 release sometime next week.

"Jaws of Hakkon is a timed exclusive for the Xbox One and PC (through Origin). This approach allowed for a lot of support from Microsoft and Origin in launching the DLC, so [it] did have that benefit for the team, and we appreciate the partnership," BioWare general manager Aaryn Flynn said as part of a Kotaku Q&A session today.

"However, as a timed exclusive, it is definitely coming to the game's other platforms, and based on our internal discussions I expect we'll be announcing more details next week."

"I hope no one boycotts the purchase, as it's a pretty fun adventure that WILL be available on all platforms," he added. "That said, everyone is free to vote / message / communicate how they feel, so if that happens it happens. We're definitely paying attention."

Jaws of Hakkon was released this week only for Xbox One and PC as part of an exclusivity arrangement between BioWare owner Electronic Arts and Microsoft. The terms of this deal prohibit BioWare from even disclosing the length of the exclusive period.

So far, the Jaws of Hakkon expansion has been confirmed only for Xbox One, PC, and PS4. BioWare has not announced any plans to bring the DLC to last-generation consoles such as Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3.

In Jaws of Hakkon, players will "discover the fate of the last Inquisitor and the powerful dragon he hunted."

Set in an overgrown wilderness populated by the Avvar hunter people, the content will see players exploring an "ancient Tevinter fortress that hides a dangerous secret."

Gamers can also expect to face off against new enemies, and amass new legendary armor and weapons. Jaws of Hakkon concludes with a battle against an "ancient god of war bent on destroying the world."
