Dragon Age: Origins expansion 'Awakening' announced

7:40 AM on 01.05.2010 // Brad Nicholson

The rumored Dragon Age: Origins expansion, “Dragon Age: Origins -- Awakening,” is a real thing. This morning, EA and BioWare announced the expansion, confirming several details leaked days prior, thanks to an odd European retailer listing.

The expansion appears to take place after the events in the core game, tasking users with rebuilding the devastated Grey Warden ranks in a place named Amaranthine as the order's new Commander.

Don't think the Darkspawn are toast. The conflict isn’t over -- one of the Commander's main goals is to figure out why the Darkspawn are still running around after the Archdemon's death. The official release promises a moral choice accompanies this mystery, and morals will factor into rebuilding the order.

The content can be kicked off with new Grey Warden "from the neighboring land of Orlais" or your own dude. Being introduced alongside this mysterious Orlasian Warden are five new party members, as well as a host of various other game components, such as new spells, specializations, (evolved) enemies and items. The official release also makes mention that the level cap is being boosted, and the ability to re-spec characters is being added with the expansion as well.

“Dragon Age: Origins -- Awakening” is priced at $39.99 and will be available for all relevant platforms on March 16, 2010.
