We no longer have to rely on Google-translated rumors about retailer listings regarding an upcoming Dragon Age expansion. EA has officially revealed Awakening, the first retail expansion for Dragon Age: Origins, due in stores March 16 for $40 -- and it's up for pre-order on GameStop now. (There's no word on a downloadable version.)
Awakening takes place after the (many) events of Origins, putting the player in the role of a Grey Warden Commander taking on new monsters, like the Inferno Golem and the Spectral Dragon, in a new area of the world called Amaranthine. That character will have an increased level cap, new items, new spells, the ability to "re-spec" attributes, and five new friends with whom to bond. You can also import your old character or start fresh with a new one.
It seems odd that the DLC delay and the expansion announcements would coincide so closely, though we don't think it's a matter of BioWare trying to starve people for Dragon Age content so that the expansion would appear more attractive. We can't think of any other explanation than "it's a weird coincidence," though we'll attempt to clear it up with BioWare.Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening announced, dated March 16 originally appeared on Joystiq on Tue, 05 Jan 2010 09:30:00 EST.
