"Update: Some quick comments from BioWare's Rob Bartel on the official forums:

Sorry, no waffles but there will be some voicework, including from the followers. We put a particular focus on the various followers who were also present at the battle. As for precisely when it will come out, we don't have a specific answer to that yet which is why we're being vague. We're still tackling one last optimization issue and then we need to make it through final testing and certification across all three platforms.
Average playtime is always tough to pin down because everyone's mileage will vary (and developers player the game in a very different manner than a typical first-time player). I can do a speed run (skipping through conversations and cutscenes, using a buff party, controlling Dog, avoiding some combats, ignoring loot drops, not looking at the scenery, etc) in about 15-20 minutes. I suspect it would take a typical first-time player about an hour to complete."

This is a quoted and prooves the content is only 5-15minutes long for us who beat the game 3 times and want the thrill of something new so we'll probable try to avoid combat to view the dialogs and cutscenes which personaly I wont i'll try to make it last the hour thats been listed above for first time players.

EA milks money from anything they help produce which ****es me off. $5 for 10-20min of content is bull!!! I mean the original story lasted 80hours for me since I did all the side quests and quests included romance and took my time to enjoy my first playthrough. The 2nd playthrough took only 8hours. So if the game was $50 and had 70hours of basic gameplay maybe 80hrs then $5 for 10minutes of gameplay is a rip off!!!

I'm glad I don't play games the way you do.

What? You mean you actually take time to enjoy your games? Pfft!

>.>

The DLC will only take "five minutes" if you blow through it, completely avoiding exploration, combat, and loot.

Trust me when I say that I am not made of money. That being said, is five dollars really a rip off? Even if you would want to blaze through the game in 15-20 minutes, I can think of many ways numerous millions of people blow through that much money in lesser amounts of time. Lunch.

See this is why EA gets away with it :\ i'd go another route of acquiring the content and yes in relation to video games $5 is to much were not speaking of food which is a necessity.

Also I play games to their full intent so if you dont then your missing out on a lot of content. Yes if you do blow through the game it wouldnt take 15minutes it would be less. I beat Warden's Keep in 8min the 3rd time I played it.

Yeah EA seems to poison anything it touches... I bet if it were completely up to them, we'd get Dragon Age 2010, 2011 etc. with slightly updated graphics and maybe a new sword every year. lol

That said I don't think 5$ is that much for quality content. And there aren't many companies making good RPGs so I like to support Bioware in the hope that they will continue to deliver.
