New Dragon Age: Origins DLC – Return to Ostagar

on November 19, 2009 7:41 PM

Dragon Age: Origins has been out for barely over two weeks.  It has been getting great reviews and is packed full of content already – without even including the two pieces of launch-day DLC that were provided.  Yet, today the folks at Bioware announced that a new piece of DLC will soon make its way to us and will be called Return to Ostagar.

Here are a few of the highlights of the new DLC, straight from Bioware’s site (and appropriately vague so as to not spoil much).

  • A return to the battlefields of Ostagar, now thick with darkspawn encamped amidst the snow.
  • An opportunity to reclaim the lost arms and armor of a king.
  • A second chance to add Dog to your party.

This DLC will be available sometime this winter, although no specific date was announced.  You’ll be able to revisit Ostagar as soon as the entire world map opens up to you, which happens a few hours into the game.  Also, for those who have already completed the story and don’t want to run through the game again, you’ll also be able to visit the DLC areas from your epilogue save file.  When it is available, it will be 400 Microsoft points or $5 on the PSN and Bioware’s store.
