Sounds like they are gearing that new patch mostly to get things ready for the DLC. How many people even buy DLC?? I don't. I feel it is greed of game developers when you consider how soon after the original game comes out that they follow up with this stuff. Why couldn't it be part of the full game from the start.
If I like the games al get the extra stuff ave done that with D.A.O / G.T.A / M.E.2 / F.O.3 and more.
