Brave heroes of the World of Ehb, your adventures have only just begun. Dungeon crawling on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 since June, Square Enix and Obsidian’s hack ‘n’ slash RPG, Dungeon Siege III, is scheduled to get its first downloadable content expansion next month.

Available for download on all three platforms in October for $9.99, the Treasures of the Sun DLC pack will expand the game with “several hours” of content, including a new story arc that will take players to the Aranoi Desert in search of a lost Legion hero and a hidden Azunite treasure. The DLC will offer new quests, new abilities, new enemies, new loot, a level cap increase, a brand new gear enchantment system and more. Here are some specifics and screenshots:

– 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.
