Dragon Age Awakening Officially Announced

dragonage
EA and BioWare have gone on record numerous times stating that the eminent Western RPG crafter’s sci-fi and fantasy epics, Dragon Age and Mass Effect 2, are going to receive a lot of post-release content that will give the titles significant longevity. Ergo, Dragon Age has already seen day-one DLC, another piece of content that was set to be released today, and now a full fledged disc-based expansion coming in March.

Last year (it already sounds so far behind, doesn’t it?), product listings from New Zealand hinted at the arrival of a new Dragon Age title, but not something that would be available for download. Dragon Age: Origins: Awakening looks to be to Dragon Age what ODST was to Halo 3 but much, much sooner and a lot less brief in game-play length. The expansion will run about fifteen hours and will allow players to import and edit their character from the main game. The setting of the expansion will be a new nation called Amaranthine and the Warden will face off against a terrible foe known as The Architect. Somehow, I imagine an older gentleman sitting in a room lined with crystal balls, but that’s just me.

So, who’s excited about this? My Dragon Age play-through was very slap dash, and I’ve kind of been feeling guilty about how quickly I burned through it. With Mass Effect 2 coming up soon, I want to get another campaign under my belt before I shift to sci-fi, and the upcoming Awakening expansion has got me interested. What about you guys?

  1. I haven’t played DAO but I have played ODST. If this is roughly 15 hours, then maybe a full price tag is acceptable. For ODST however, ’twas not.

  2. SHA-WEEEEET!

    I’ve gotten 100+ hours out of Dragon age, so a quest with an old character is everso welcome!

  3. This seriously has me ridiculously excited, though I’m a little hesitant about the price tag. However I’ve gotten so many stinking hours out of Dragon Age so far that I don’t know if I have any right to be wary. I’ve loved almost all of it, save for Bore-zammar.

  4. Eddy speaks the truth. Orzammar and the Circle tower are the two i have left for my second playthrough i just cant get excited to tackle those two.
