EA’s announced the first piece of DLC for Dragon Age II, known as “The Exiled Prince”.

The first trailer for the content shows an archer named Sebastian Vael, who is out for revenge following the murder of his family. Players will join him in the middle of his quest to avenge the murders as he is the sole surviving heir and must reclaim his royal title as he directs his holy vengeance on enemies in Kirkwall.

In addition, players will also be able to enlist Sebastian as a follower throughout a majority of Dragon Age II.

“Our goal for the Dragon Age II DLC is to extend Hawke’s journey and the Dragon Age universe by introducing additional characters with meaningful storylines and intense, dynamic missions,” said Mark Darrah, the game’s executive producer. “Not only will ’The Exiled Prince’ allow players to experience Sebastian’s powerful revenge story, but they will also be able to utilize him as a follower throughout Hawke’s rise to power in Dragon Age II.”

The Exiled Prince DLC is a three-mission digital content pack and will be available for download coinciding with Dragon Age II’s retail launch. Those who pre-order Dragon Age II before January 11 will receive a free upgrade to the Dragon Age II BioWare Signature Edition, which includes additional content including The Exiled Prince DLC pack, the game’s digital soundtrack and an exclusive in-game digital armory featuring a variety of in-game weapons.

You can pre-order until January 11 – after which, the Exiled Prince will be available for purchase separately for $7.00/ 560 Microsoft Points.

The trailer’s over at RPG Site. You can also watch it below, with subtitles.

Dragon Age II releases on March 8 in the US and March 11 in the UK for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
