DLC coming for Dungeon Siege III

Square Enix has announced the upcoming release of new DLC for Dungeon Siege III, entitled Treasures of the Sun.  With this new content comes hours of new gameplay, a brand new plot arc, additional quests, and new enemies with tons of phat lootz!

“In DUNGEON SIEGE III: TREASURES OF THE SUN, players will extend their journey and travel beyond the borders of Ehb to an all–new environment: the Aranoi Desert. On their search for a lost Legion hero, players will fight through hordes of new villains only to find a forgotten abbey hiding a long–lost secret: the greatest treasure of the Azunite faith.”

The developers have also improved several refinements to the systems and mechanics of the game including:

  • New abilities: Players will be able to attain mastery of the arcane through powerful new attack, defense and healing abilities.
  • Level up to 35: DUNGEON SIEGE III: TREASURES OF THE SUN will further power up players by raising DUNGEON SIEGE III‘s existing level cap from 30 to 35.
  • More monsters and items: Players will encounter new monsters in the Aranoi Desert—including mummies and giant skeletons—and will find more powerful items, adding to the thousands already available in DUNGEON SIEGE III.
  • Reallocate Talent & Proficiency Points: Players can reallocate points spent in Proficiencies and Talents, enabling changes to character customization throughout the campaign.
  • New Enchanting System: Transmuting items now gives players chances at gaining powerful new Vials that allow them to enhance their weapons and armor through the DLC’s new enchanting system.

Treasures of the Sun is due out in October, and should retail for $9.99.  Players can download the DLC via Steam, Xbox LIVE and the PlayStation Network.
