First Dragon Age: Origins expansion pack “Awakening” to be released in March

Submitted by on Tuesday, 5 January 2010No Comment

dragon-age-origins-logo1Bioware has announced that the first true expansion pack for Dragon Age: Origins, entitled “Awakening,” will be coming to consoles and PCs on March 16, 2010 worldwide.

Of course, you might be wondering what they mean by “first” since there is already a bunch of DLC already released for the game. While “The Stone Prisoner” and “Warden’s Keep” provide more to do, they are just extra quests. Awakening however, offers so much more…

What was considered a possibility has now become a reality. Dragon Age: Origins – Awakening opens up an entire new realm to explore called Amaranthine. The map is filled with new and ferocious darkspawn along with the Inferno Golem and Spectral Dragon to take down.

With more powerful enemies, you’re going to need a more powerful character. Thankfully Awakening features an increased level cap, new spells, abilities, specializations and items. In addition there will be five new party members available for wooing.

Awakening will tell the tale of how the darkspawn managed to survive after the slaying of the Archdemon as you rebuild the Grey Wardens. There’s also the question of who the “Architect” is and the mystery surrounding him. Let’s just hope we don’t end up having to decide between taking the red or blue pill.

As stated before, the expansion pack will be released in March 2010 and will fetch a hefty price of $39.99. While it may appear like a standalone title, you’ll need the original Dragon Age: Origins to play it. Now excuse us while we go and hunt down some darkspawn while we wait.
