Dragon Age: Origins – Awakening rises to shelves tomorrow!

RPG Xbox 360 Playstation 3 PC News EA


The brand new Dragon Age: Origins release is just around the corner. Dragon Age: Origins – Awakening is a complete expansion to the original Dragon Age: Origins, taking place months after the battle at the finale of the previous game.

This expansion will include a completely different storyline, with five new party members and an old face making a return. As well as increasing the level cap from the previous game, adding in new skills, abilities, brand new items, and a new origin story. The expansion will also offer the ability to import your previous character from Dragon Age: Origins. However no DLC equipment or skills will be imported alongside your character, and since this occurs after Origins, you may not take your character back in time to play DLC from Origins.

The story revolves around the gray wardens and their attempt to rebuild the order after the end of the blight. However the darkspawn are not gone, and suddenly they have grown more intelligent, able of speech and planning. With new members and a new origin story, you must travel forth as one of the sole gray wardens left alive to do battle with this unknown foe known only as the “Architect”

This expansion pack to the original DA:O will run at the price of $39.99, and can be played as a stand alone title for the 360 and the PS3, however requires DA:O to be previously installed on the PC version of the game.

Personally I am quite excited about this. After playing through DA:O multiple times, playing this extension should be amazing. Plus I can’t wait to see who the returning character from DA:O will be. It’ll be interesting to see how long the story will turn out to be, and when the time comes for Dragon Age: Origins 2, or possibly “Dragon Age: The Middle,” will our choices and actions in this expansion also be reflected? Or will it be completely stand alone.

    Dragon Age Origins is still on my wishlist, i really want to play it, and now together with Awakening. I will keep my eyes on deals.

  • Well my friend plays this game pretty much nonstop so I guess I should remind him of this. I personally didn’t like it that much but that’s probably because I was playing the console version.

    i havent played DAO but it looked sweet shouldnt this just be a download? and 40$? it must be really long because the gta expansions were pretty big and they were i think 15$

    yaay, it’s here, just got my preorder=D…love this game, really, along with everything bioware makes. pure genius

  • versapak

    It can be played stand alone on 360? I thought I had read that it couldn’t be (probably just confusing it with the PC version). If it can be, then that is great news, because I traded in the game a lil while back.
