Dungeon Siege 3 DLC announced

Treasures of the Sun expansion in October.

Action RPG sequel Dungeon Siege 3 gets a beefy DLC expansion this October on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, publisher Square Enix has announced.

Expected to sell for $9.99, Treasures of the Sun will include a new plot arc and additional quests set in the new environment of Aranoi Desert. You'll be searching for a lost Legion hero and rifling through a "forgotten abbey" for a long-lost Azunite treasure.

The DLC also adds in various new abilities and raises the level cap from 30 to 35. There'll be new monsters to fight and items to pick up, and a new Enchanting system that lets players enhance their weapons and armour.

Finally, players will now have the ability to reallocate points spent in Proficiencies and Talents, enabling changes to character customisation throughout the campaign.

The Obsidian-developed title launched back in June, picking up a very respectable 8/10 from Eurogamer's Quintin Smith. See his Dungeon Siege 3 review for details.
