If a seemingly oddball rumor holds true, it appears that Dragon Age: Origins owners could be devouring a huge slab of DLC in the near future. Something much more epic than Warden’s Keep or Return to Ostagar.
The Czech Web arm of Eurogamer is running the sexy gossip: according to the Web site, EA and Bioware are slated to announce a full expansion for the PC version of the game dubbed Dragon Age: Awakening this January. The content is said to feature a wholly new character, as well as a proper origins narrative, and at least 15 hours of additional play time.
Eurogamer.cz continues with the info drop, stating it believes that the content will drop in Europe this March (possibly retail and digital) and will cost around two-thirds of the game’s original price.
We’ve dropped a letter to Bioware to check the validity of this, but like proper people, the studio’s staff is probably enjoying the seasonal break. We’ll let you guys know when we get the answer. Until then, celebrate the fact that expansions are still being rumored in this era of micro-transactions.
