Update: Dragon Age Origins: Golems of Amgarrak DLC

I’ve noticed a trend between Mass Effect 2 and Dragon Age: Origins. When one announces a DLC the other game is sure to follow. Shortly after Mass Effect 2’s announcement we now have a new Dragon Age Origins DLC called Golems of Amgarrak.

During Comic-Con, Bioware gave PC gamers a little gift, the up-coming DLC.

This DLC is rumored to be harder than any of the other DLC so far and to be a bit more challenging. Even though it’s the same battle system a new story to an already great game is always refreshing.

Check out Joystiq to read up on someone who had a taste of this DLC.

From Bioware’s website, this new DLC will cost $5.00 and [...]

Playstation Plus Members To Get Kane & Lynch 2 Demo Early

Sony has gotten its hands on the Demo for Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days and will let new members of Playstation Plus get their hands on it before regular members on July 19th.

Presumably XBL members who got tokens to play the demo since July 1st have been doing so, and we can assume that the non-token bunch will get it along with the regular PSN gamers on July 20th.

A day later for all everyone else, so not to worry although we have yet to confirm the date for XBL gamers if they will get the demo the same time as PSN gamers.

Kane & Lynch 2’s release was pulled forward a week, and will now drop on August 17.

Assassin’s Creed 3 To Have “New Setting, New Hero”

It looks like AC: Brotherhood might be the last time we see Ezio and his story.

“Assassin’s Creed 3: new setting, new hero. That’s the way it works,” associate producer Jean-Francois Boivin told Gamerzines when asked if we’d see a new location and main character in the next numbered title in the series.

“We know what we’re doing; we’ve had a plan for a long time where this license is going to go.”

Don’t expect AC 3 remotely anytime soon, as the team is taking 365 day break after Brotherhood is released, so look for it in 2012 for PS3, PC and Xbox 360.
