Dragon Age II will be in stores on March 8 in North America and March 11 in Europe, and BioWare is readying the launch of day one DLC titled "The Exiled Prince." This content pack will feature Sebastian Vael, an archer on a quest to avenge the brutal murder of his family. Much like Shale from the original Dragon Age, once his quest has been completed, he can be recruited as a loyal follower.
This DLC will be available a few different ways. First, those who pre-order the Dragon Age II BioWare Signature Edition before January 11 will receive "The Exiled Prince" DLC, the digital soundtrack, and an exclusive digital armory full of in-game weapons. This Signature Edition is available at the same price as the normal one, but will only be available for pre-order through January 11. Players will have to pay no extra for this content if ordered prior to that day, but for those who wait, the DLC will be available for $7 or 560 Microsoft Points the day of release.
