Designed and written by the same team that brought you Dragon Age: Origins, the Awakening expansion pack offers a brand new area of the world to explore known as Amaranthine, featuring an epic story that will allow players to unravel the secrets of the darkspawn - and their true motivations! Players will face a range of horrific and terrifying creatures including an evolved, intelligent breed of darkspawn and other menacing creatures such as the Inferno Golem and Spectral Dragon. Dragon Age: OriginsAwakening provides exciting new ways for players to customize their heroes and party, including the ability to re-spec their character attributes, allowing even greater customization and replayability. Featuring an increased level cap, new spells, abilities, specializations and items, plus five all-new party members, players can continue their adventures from Dragon Age: Origins, or begin with a brand new character.

Dragon Age: OriginsAwakening, BioWare’s next thread in the Dragon Age: Origins tapestry, occurs following the events of Dragon Age: Origins and puts players into the role of a Grey Warden Commander entrusted with rebuilding the order of Grey Wardens. In addition to rebuilding the ranks of the Grey Wardens, you will be tasked with uncovering the mystery of how the darkspawn survive after the slaying of the Archdemon. How players choose to rebuild their order, resolve the conflict with the mysterious “Architect,” and determine the fate of the darkspawn are just some of the many intriguing moral choices that will shape each player’s heroic journey. Players will be able to import their character from Dragon Age: Origins or start out as a new Grey Warden from the neighboring land of Orlais.

Queen of the Blackmarsh

A generation ago, a dragon settled in the Blackmarsh. The local villagers, fearful of what she might do to their homes, hunted her in vain, losing many lives and gaining nothing. The men and women of the Blackmarsh had almost given up hope when the Orlesian baroness who had been sent to rule them interceded. Some whispered that the mysterious woman was a witch, but witch or no, she drove the beast away and saved her people. Most believed that the dragon had been killed and pointed to the bones scattered about the marsh as evidence. Others were not so sure, for they had seen the beast in fever dreams, soaring on great wings, a terrible storm in her wake. Those skeptics said that the dragon was not destroyed, merely trapped. But some things in this world are not meant to be tampered with, and they are left well alone.
