I can say, I think, that the $5 price is one that was hotly debated by people inside. Some people wanted less, some people thought it had to be more in order for it to be profitable enough (based on the work done on the new content -- it is not, I have been told, just another by-the-numbers uncharted world with a new enemy model, and there were people working long-ass hours to get it done) based on the time it took to make. The popular consensus is that yeah, it's a premium price, but that's how premium packs work, and unless we want to make DLC that's just new armor or something, it's too much work for us to price it any lower.

I'd say more, but I don't know more, frankly. I'm on another project now, so I'm getting all of this secondhand.
