Two years of DLC planned for Dragon Age

Everything from items to expansions.

BioWare has revealed that it has extensive plans to support Dragon Age: Origins with a broad range of downloadable content, across all platforms, for at lest two years after its release next month.

"We have plans that stretch out for basically two years," producer Mark Darrah told The Game Reviews (via VG247).

"And it's going to be everything from really small stuff like item packs, up to larger quests that might last an hour or two, up to even fully-fledged expansion packs. Really, it's a broad, long-term support plan for the game."

All of this will be released across PC, Xbox 360 and PS3, although Darrah admitted that "I can imagine we might release something related to the toolset, which would of course be PC only". BioWare is still exploring ways of getting user generated content onto consoles, he said.

Eurogamer understands that the sheer quantity of DLC BioWare has planned for Dragon Age is huge, easily eclipsing any other releases to date, including Fallout 3. There will be three packs available at launch, two of them free.

Also, the Dragon Age character creator launches today for free on PC, and is available at the game's official site.
