While we’d settle for the original Dragon Age: Origins simply working on the PS3 like it’s supposed to, BioWare have an eye on the future with upcoming DLC Darkspawn Chronicles. Presenting an “alternative history” where the bad guys won, the new content will let you play out your diabolical fantasies as a Darkspawn character. From the BioWare site:
The city of Denerim, jewel of Ferelden, girds itself for war. As a hurlock vanguard, you alone hold the power to make thralls of your fellow darkspawn and drive them into the heat of battle. Heed the archdemon’s call–Denerim must burn!
- A look at an alternate history: what if your character had died in the Joining ceremony, and the Grey Wardens marched under Alistair’s command instead?
- A standalone adventure in which you command genlocks, hurlocks, shrieks, and even the mighty ogres.
- Complete the module and unlock an epic Darkspawn item in DA:O and Awakening.
The DLC is due on May 18th on Xbox360 and will cost 400 Microsoft Points. A PS3 date has yet to be confirmed. Probably because their mail server keeps crashing every ten minutes as they’re trying to get the press release out. When it does launch, it will cost £3.99/€4.99.
