BioWare and Electronic Arts released a new gameplay video of the Exiled Prince DLC for Dragon Age II.
The game hasn't been released yet.
true its actually disgusting what they get away with.
Yeah this put me off DA2 actually I remember thinking of buying DA:Origins, When I saw the total price of all that DLC it astounded me, I got the game and never touched any DLC. Package felt....Incomplete, a bit anyway
WOW only EA manages to do that... the game is like is not even out yet.
Seriously we need to stop buying these games that do this BS. WTF the game isn't out and they are already advertising DLC to be released. That should be part of the game or they should be improving the game more instead of working on DLC right now. If the game releases with bugs then whoever buys it should not complain because you deserve it for supporting companies that do this. Bioware used to be awesome developers but now they are turning into money hungry whores like the rest and not carry about their fans. Not saying they don't make good games just saying they are not giving us their all if they are trying to milk us of our hard earned money with stuff that should be in the games or they shouldn't be charging us full price. Maybe I'm wrong and EA is the ones forcing them to do this which wouldn't surprise me either since EA used to be just like Craptivison is these days. Could be old habit returning? If so devs need to stand up to the publishers for fans but that will never happen.
This has become normal. Announce DLC before the release... Makes me think that this could be already in the disc, instead of some stupid DLC.
Is it me or people suddenly having selective memories ? it was the same with DAO already with success . Why expect something else for the second one ?
This DLC comes with the game if you buy it new, just like the Shale DLC for DAO
That's what I was thinking, as well. Weren't there a couple DLCs packaged with the first?
Yes, the 'shale' DLC and the 'warden' DLC
Oh what garbage! I will not buy this game. At least there will be Witcher and Skyrim.
Cash-in people. Cash in. The Mass Effect way.
I'm lucky. I bought Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood on January, and the gamestop guy said I can pre-order a game for free. So many thoughts in my head, but blurted out Dragon Age 2, after reading in N4g article about limited SE if pre-order. And yeah, Mass Effect 2 DLC > Dragon Age's. ME DLC are all worthy of being purchase. Random Note - Dayman rocks!(Fighter of the Nightman)
ME2 DLC rock! playing them on the PS3, did not played them when i had a 360, i should have they re awesome
Man.... People say Activision is bad...but comeon announcing paid for DLC before the game even ships? That is just poor PR / Marketing management. Noway should they be showing this off right now. Not too mention that anything made prior to shipping that game should be included in the retail game if you ask me. Total BS on Bioware/EA's part. I blame Bioware just as much as EA on this. Very disappointed.
different brand same taste!
Yeah right let's pretend we didnt know dlc for activision products before release too . Everyone has been doing that ever since dlc took off . And still doesnt change the fact that the original product on its own is better and work , as compared to the regular cod turd . and lol Looks at this , you guys are making me defend EA of all things ...
Screw again!Lame!First the state the game is smaller then origins than they release this BS!
well i don't know if its that much shorter they said its shorter then the first but they also said its longer then Mass Effect 2.but yeah i agree total bs like i said way below i will get the game but i will wait for the goty edition to get the dlc and trade or sell the original game.
i just bought DAO Ultimate Edition because of this. I will chew on the great story of DAO until they release DA2 Ultimate Edition. You all know is coming!
That's what I'm gonna do. PS: Origins did not have a great story. Competent at best. They pretty much lifted the story from LOTR. Origins is BioWare's LOTR.
thumbs up on your move!Waiting for the ultimate edition is the way to go on this!There some many games on the market, this can wait for a better opportunity!
I clearly remember reading that anyone who purchases Dragon Age 2 on release day gets day 1 release DLC FREE! Lets hope its not day 2 dlc lool.
Announcing DLC before a games release is one thing, but showing a trailer before or just after the games release makes me wonder if they took it from the main game. Dragon Age 2 is probably going to be a great game, but this is unacceptable.
still going to get the game but i will wait until the goty edition or some thing that has all the dlc on it and trade dragon age 2 in for the collectors edition or w.e lol that's what i should of done with dragon age origins,i will say this is bullshit and this dlc should be on the game..i hope people storm the ea forums about this i would but I'm way to lazzy after a long day of school and then work and the commute home X_X
Well if you pre-orderd this, you shouldn't have anything to complain about. I preordered back in october, and am only paying 59.99 for all the dlc and the game. I don't see what the big deal is.
I am quite excited to play this game but everyone knows there's going to be GOTY edition. I think I might wait.
And if you missed the pre order deal then this DLC will only cost you $7. People need to vote with their money. Ohh well. I guess it's still not bad as AC2 deliberately taking 2 chapters for the sake of quick cash in.
lol dlc already, remember when the first one was released, within a week there was like a 25$ golem character to buy plus others. stiff animation, bad combat, no thanks. give me dlc for good combat and actually try to make it look natural when the character attacks and maaaaybe i will buy the game used for its good story and rpg elements. fix gameplay 1st
