[Update] Jaws of Hakkon, the First Dragon Age: Inquisition DLC Has Been Announced
The first DLC for Dragon Age: Inquisition has finally been named. Jaws of Hakkon will be the name of the first of several single player DLC content updates for BioWare’s very well received Dragon Age: Inquisition.
The official Dragon Age: Inquisition Twitter account spilled the beans on the name of the first DLC, Jaws of Hakkon. The trailer for such will be released tomorrow, March 24th 2015.
Jaws of Hakkon will be released on the Xbox One and the PC first, other than that there are no details to be had. The official trailer will be released tomorrow and we’ll definitely be covering that as soon as it becomes available.
As we’ve already covered, there was already some indication that a story based DLC will be made available soon. BioWare has also been very tight lipped as to their DLC progression and as to what their plans were. Hopefully their plan to keep things silent until now will help to stave off the hype train that can sometimes ruin an otherwise great game when it overshoots the actual potential. We’re crossing our fingers that Jaws of Hakkon doesn’t end up with the same fate as so many others before it.
In the meantime, why not go revisit Thedas and prepare your character for the no doubt awesome content that’s about to be incoming. The selling point of the Dragon Age games has always been the strong story-line and the very deep character development, and this DLC is anticipated to continue that trend towards character driven gameplay.

If you are on the Xbox One then it looks like you can enjoy a little gift from EA earlier than expected. Jaws of Hakkon has slipped out into the open on the Xbox store due to a technical glitch, and EA doesn’t appear to be wanting to close that little hole. So the DLC is there for your enjoyment! PC will still have to wait until tomorrow, unfortunately.
The DLC itself should include a host of new content, including some great new enemies, armor, weapons and an entirely new region. Head on over to the Xbox store to enjoy a present a bit early folks and let us know how it is in the comments. The description from the page is below.
