EA have sneaked out the announcement of Dragon Age: Inquisition DLC and it’s out tomorrow on Xbox One and PC. Yep, it’s one of the darn timed exclusives.

For those who are unaware, “timed exclusive” is a concept created by people in suits at software publishers and is specifically designed to annoy the hell out of around half of their fanbase, whilst at the same time granting the publishers a bonus in some form. This could be money, extra promotion on the favoured format, or possibly a large bag of chips and a slap on the back.
Meanwhile their customers split in to two factions, the smug ones who are getting the “timed exclusive”, and the grumpy ones who are not. The rivalry between the two factions generates over two thousand tonnes of virtual bile and spite, and a recent study has shown that nearly four million mothers have also been insulted due to exclusivity deals.
There is a trailer for the Dragon Age: Inquisition DLC, but it’s not out till tomorrow which seems a bit silly.
Twitter has reacted to the news in much the same way it does when Justin Beiber takes his shirt off. No, it has, really, look at these.
