Surprise! Dragon Age Inquisition DLC coming tomorrow. For some of us.

Well, this was unexpected. It was pretty much guaranteed that Bioware would eventually release single player DLC for Dragon Age Inquisition. But usually, there’s a bit of a buildup. First come the rumors, then the teases, then the trailer, then finally, the DLC itself. This time, Bioware decided to skip all that and is releasing a brand new expansion tomorrow. Read on for the details.

The announcement was made earlier today on the official Dragon Age twitter feed, along with the image below.

Dragon Age Hakkon

Initially, the assumption that most had was that we would be getting a trailer for this new DLC, entitled Jaws of Hakkon. Later on, Bioware clarified that not only would be getting the trailer tomorrow, but we would be getting the whole friggin DLC as well.

For Xbox One and PC.

Yeah… so there’s some bad news to go along with the good. Jaws of Hakkon will undoubtedly be coming to Xbox 360, PS3 and PS4 eventually, but for now, the expansion will only be available on Xbox One and PC. Platform exclusivity agreements are so awesome, aren’t they? It’s so much fun to play a game, and not be able to discuss it with a friend who has the misfortune of owning a competing game console whose manufacturer failed to properly compensate the game’s publisher for the rights to release the game on their platform first.

Anywho, not much is known about Jaws of Hakkon yet, other than the fact that it appears to have trees, rocks and fog. Oh, and one tree has some sort of platform built into it. Let’s hope the DLC doesn’t place on Endor. We’ll find out more tomorrow.

To top off today’s Dragon Age news, Bioware has also released a new patch for the game. This 6th patch features a number of single player bug fixes, along with a few for multiplayer as well. Check out the full patch notes below.
