According to a tweet from Mark Darrah, DLC for Dragon Age: Inquisition is being worked on. No details yet, but as soon as they nail them down they'll announce them.

Also, the previously PC-only Patch 3 was released for the XBox and PlayStation platforms to fix a large list of bugs. It's called Patch 4 due to it encompassing Patch 3 + the Patch 3 hotfix that fixed the crafted shields (that were broken by the initial release of Patch 3). Patch 4 on PC was the hotfix to Patch 3.


On January 26 we released Patch 4 on PC. It was a small patch focused on two important issues: armor stats for crafted shields and MP Key Drop issue.
 
- Previously, crafted shields were using the wrong primary stat – normal armor instead of front armor. This means that in a few scenarios a character would get more armor protection when being hit by the side. On Patch 3 we implemented a change that fixed the armor stat for shields. New crafted shields worked correctly after Patch 3 but shields that were crafted before the fix remained with their old stats which was not displayed properly and not applied to the character when equipped. In Patch 4 we fixed this scenario for old crafted shields.
 
- In Patch 4 we minimized substantially the chance of the MP Key Drop issue happening. We found several instances where monsters could die and not correctly update the internal kill counter—this would cause the end-of-wave key drop event to not occur.  We resolved these issues and also added a failsafe mechanism which will attempt to recover in case there are additional cases that have not yet been discovered.  We are continuing to investigate other sources of this problem, for example when monsters become unkillable because they manage to escape the playable area.
