Free Dragon Age: Inquisition DLC and patch released

UPDATE: Black Emporium stock captured in video.

UPDATE 2.45PM BST: One fan has recorded a video from the Black Emporium, showing the some of the shop's crafting stock. There don't appear to be any new schematics, but - handily - the game's entire range seems to be contained there. Via the BioWare forum.

ORIGINAL STORY 10AM BST: Dragon Age: Inquisition has been patched and there are also two free lumps of downloadable content available today.

The free downloadable content is The Black Emporium (single-player) and Dragonslayer (multiplayer).

The Black Emporium is a bit of a cheat shop - a place accessible from the War Table where you can buy really powerful items, new schematics, and even alter your face.

"The Black Emporium expansion adds four high-level stores that sell epic weapons, powerful accessories, new crafting materials and schematics, and other hard-to-find items," it says in the Xbox Live Marketplace blurb. "Change your facial appearance with the Mirror of Transformation."

The Black Emporium is just under 200MB.

Could use a bit of a tidy up.
And a dust.

The Dragonslayer multiplayer add-on brings high dragons via a new map, and three new characters, including Isabela the horny pirate from Dragon Age 2. The other characters are a big burly Avvar Skywatcher and a Virtuoso music person thing.

The Dragonslayer add-on is a massive 3.85GB.

The patch rolled out at the weekend - Patch 7 - was 2.6GB on PS4 and 3GB on Xbox One. It addresses a few things in multiplayer, a few bugs - such as beards not aligning properly - and paves the way for the Jaws of Hakkon DLC, which finally comes out for PS4, PS3 and Xbox 360 on 26th May.
