Today BioWare announced that gamers who buy new copies of Dragon Age: Origins will receive $15 worth of DLC for free.
Dubbed the Stone Prisoner add-on, this bit of DLC adds the NPC Shale, a “mighty stone golem,” as well as numerous quests, environments and items. According to BioWare it will add “hours of additional gameplay.”
If you choose to buy Dragon Age used, the Stone Prisoner DLC will cost you $15. Some of you might be scratching your head as to why EA would give away DLC to gamers who buy new copies. You see, used games sales only benefit the retailer. EA would rather have you buy new copies so that it sees some of the profit.
Dragon Are: Origins was recently delayed to a November 3 release for the PC and Xbox 360. The PS3 version will arrive later that month.
