We posted about the rumors and sightings of a Dragon Age: Origins expansion yesterday, but now it’s official. BioWare will be bringing Dragon Age: Origins – Awakening to Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, on March 16, 2010. The first official expansion to one of the best titles to release in 2009. The expansion will cost $39.99 on all 3 platforms and will continue where Dragon Age: Origins left off. Players will take over the role of a Grey Warden Commander responsible for rebuilding the order of the Grey Wardens.

“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: Origins – Awakening 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, or begin with a brand new party.”
