Jaws of Hakkon, the first story-based DLC for Dragon Age: Inquisition will launch today on Xbox One and PC (and later for PlayStation).
Well this is a fine how-do-you-do. Bioware has quite unexpectedly announced that the first story-based DLC for Dragon Age: Inquisition, Jaws of Hakkon, will launch… tomorrow! That is, if you happen to be an Xbox One or PC gamers. The official Dragon Age Twitter account posted the news, which was initially interpreted by many as an announcement of the DLC’s trailer. However BioWare boss Aaryn Flynn has confirmed to Kotaku that the full DLC is indeed coming tomorrow.
No mention was made of the PlayStation release, except that it would be “later”, meaning that this is most certainly the result of one of those nasty “timed exclusivity” agreements between Microsoft and EA. No pricing details, or comment on whether or not the DLC would make its way to “last-gen” platforms, was announced.
If you listened very carefully while playing Inquisition, you would have heard “Hakkon” mentioned a few times. The name Hakkon itself seems linked to one of the old Avvar gods, Hakkon Wintersbreath. Hakkon is the “Lord of Winter”, so we can probably expect the DLC to take place in some snowy mountaintop.
And that’s pretty much all we know – anything else would be pure speculation. I’m excited!
