Dragon Age: Inquisition DLC escapes to new platforms

I’ll forgive you for forgetting that Dragon Age: Inquisition, last year’s stellar RPG epic, even had DLC. It’s been ages since Jaws of Hakkon released as a little timed-exclusive package for Microsoft platforms (sorry 360, not you), but if you’ve waited with bated breath you can finally let out a sigh of relief. It’s coming to every other platform, and pretty soon too.

Jaws of Hakkon explores the fate of the last Inquisitor, who mysteriously went missing after fighting a powerful dragon. I’m struggling to see how hunting a massive, hulking lizard translates to a mysterious disappearance, but I digress. The DLC opens up a brand new area in Thedas, with the lush, mountainous area hiding a shadowy, winding undergrowth lying beneath.

The bit of story DLC, which launched on Xbox One and PC on March 24, will launch on PS4, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC come May 26. You’ll be able to download the package standalone for $15, or hit it free if you’ve splurged on the game’s Season’s Pass.

I personally feel no real obligation to dive back into Inquisition, despite the amount of fun I had with it last year. Even though the tale that my own Inquisitor endured in the main game was compelling, I don’t really find anything interested about the history of the order. A piece of DC exploring how BioWare might continue their stake in Thedas might be more entertaining – but there’s nothing like that in the pipeline just yet.

But if you’ve been looking for a good excuse to get back into the swing of Dragon slaying (just after The Witcher 3 launches), then this seems like a good excuse.

  1. If it was released on PC on March 24 why are they releasing it on PC again on May 26? Is it a remastered version or has it come out of beta now? πŸ˜‰

      Was wondering the same thing. 2 months for a remaster and/or re-release. Typical EA.

    Are they going to split the DLC into 50 pieces too?

      50 + 10. The 10 are mini-dlc’s that you need to play and finish to reveal the locations of the other 50.

            For once, I want a quest that goes:
            You have a question needs answering? Well. there be this crazy dragon-lady over them yonder hills. Ye’ll need ta “ruffle her feathers” nudge-nudge, wink-wink upon which she will provide ye the answer ye be searchin for and turn into a dragon and try and bite yer cuckotoo off.
            Good Luck

    I’m so over EA and Microsoft. I mean I get that it’s competitive market and all but I am so sick of these marketing ploys that just screw over gamers. I mean they wouldn’t even let it come out for the 360!?! And for what? To catch up to Sony’s PS4? Microsoft has done every shady, underhanded thing to move units rather than offer a compelling product. and now EA is ruining some of my favorite franchises all in the name of their bottom line. I’ve already had to walk away from Halo, Gears and Fable but now I have to walk away from The Sims, Mass Effect and a bunch of other franchises? At this rate i’ll be paying all the older games and PS exclusives
