If you're willing to commit now to buying "Dragon Age 2" by way of a pre-order, you're going to get quite the nice hookup in the form of DLC at launch.

Those who place a pre-order for the game before January 12 will be put down for a copy of the "Dragon Age 2" Signature Edition. This is a special pre-order-only version of the game is only available for those who put some money down prior to 1/12. As a new trailer reveals, the Signature Edition gives players "The Exiled Prince" DLC as a free download, which includes an extra party member and his associated quest.
