Two Free DLC Add-Ons Coming Next Week To Dragon Age: Inquisition

Now that we know when the Dragon Age: Inquisition – Jaws of Hakkon DLC is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360, it’s time to turn our ambitions elsewhere. BioWare has announced two upcoming DLC add-ons that are arriving very soon.

Those who played Dragon Age II will likely remember the Black Emporium and its strange curios. You’ll be able to visit that wondrous shop once more. And, if you’re anxious to change your appearance, the Mirror of Transformation remains in place in Xenon’s collection.

This DLC also comes with two seats upon which you may place your posterior in Skyhold. If you’ve played Dragon Age: Origins with your Origin account, you’ll get the Legacy Ferelden throne. If you’ve done the same with Dragon Age II, you’ll unlock the Legacy Kirkwall throne.

Also on the way is the Dragonslayer multiplayer DLC. As you might have guessed, this add-on will allow you to take on giant drakes… if you craft the Dragon’s Call.

Three new characters are being added with this DLC pack. An Avvar warrior named Skywatcher and Zither the Virtuoso join the fight. Oh, and if you’re wondering that image above is who you think it is, you’ll be happy to know that Isabela is making her return.

Both DLC packs will be out on May 5, at no charge. All platforms (PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC) will have access at the same time. The Jaws of Hakkon paid DLC ($ 14.99) will be out for PS4, PS3, and Xbox 360 on May 26.

For more on Jaws of Hakkon, check out our impressions. For our review of Dragon Age: Inquisition, read on.

If You Grabbed Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty PS4 With PS Plus, You Will Get The Vita And PS3 Versions Free

Developer Just Add Water originally planned for Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty to only be cross-buy compatible for copies of the game purchased after its PS Plus window, but it has changed its mind.

Writing on its website, the developer talked about changing its mind due to fan feedback:

Developing the other versions of the game is not a simple, cost-free process, and takes time, money and considerable effort. That said, numerous factors (including fan feedback) have prompted us to change our stance on this particular matter. So, if you downloaded New ‘n’ Tasty for PS4 during the PS Plus period, the PS3 and PS Vita versions of the game will be free for download for you on release.

Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty was available for PS Plus subscribers in March on PlayStation 4. The PlayStation 3 version of the game released on April 21. The game is also available on Xbox One and PC, and is currently in development without a solid release date for Vita and Wii U.

For our review of New 'n' Tasty, head here.

Our Take
Vita is actually my platform preference when it's an option, so this is good news for me. I never played Oddworld back during its original release, but it has always seemed like the kind of game I would like. I look forward to playing it on Vita.

Xbox Live Gold Members Can Play NBA 2K15 On Xbox One For Free This Weekend

To celebrate the start of the NBA playoffs, Xbox Live Gold subscribers are able to play Visual Concepts' NBA 2K15 for free this weekend. Starting at noon Pacific on Friday, April 24, Xbox Live subscribers can play the entire NBA 2K15 experience for free until Sunday night at midnight Pacific.

In addition, players who enjoy the game enough to want to pick it up will be able to do so at a discounted rate on Xbox Live. The NBA 2K15 bundle, which includes the game, as well as 15,000 VC, the currency used in the game, will be available for 40% off MSRP on Xbox Live. All achievements and saves will transfer from the free version to the full version.

Our Take
I know that whenever any sport starts its playoffs, I immediately want to pick up the best game for that sport, so 2K Sports and Xbox coupling this free weekend with a sale to coincide with the start of the playoffs is a smart move. I already purchased NBA 2K15 and have been really enjoying the various career modes.
