BioWare Confirms Upcoming Dragon Age DLC, Gives Us More Details

Following yesterday's slip from console makers Microsoft regarding some upcoming Dragon Age DLC, BioWare today have confirmed the DLC and announced the "Darkspawn Chronicles."
Other than confirming the price ($5), the post actually gives us a little more insight into what we can expect... and it's all a little bizarre and unexpected.
"You now fight as the Darkspawn!" says the blog post on BioWare.com. "The city of Denerim, jewel of Ferelden, girds itself for war. As a hurlock vanguard, you alone hold the power to make thralls of your fellow darkspawn and drive them into the heat of battle. Heed the archdemon's call--Denerim must burn!" continues the post.
According to the post, you get to take a look at "an alternate history: what if your character had died in the Joining ceremony, and the Grey Wardens marched under Alistair's command instead?"
Described as a "standalone adventure in which you command genlocks, hurlocks, shrieks, and even the mighty ogres," if you complete the Darkspawn Chronicles you even "unlock an epic Darkspawn item in DA:O and Awakening."
The post isn't quite as specific as Microsoft's slip in terms of date - the BioWare post lists May whereas Microsoft pinpointed May 18th - but at least you have a little more of a definitive announcement to go on now.
