BioWare has announced that the long awaited downloadable content (DLC) for Dragon Age Origins, dubbed Return to Ostagar, will be released for the XBox 360 and PC on January 5, 2009.
PlayStation 3 owners will have to wait until later this January. No reasons on why the PlayStation 3 version is delayed, but perhaps it's the exclusivity BioWare is giving to Microsoft's XBox 360 and the PC.
Press Release: BioWare, a division of Electronic Arts, announced today that the Return to Ostagar downloadable content (DLC) for Dragon Age: Origins will be released on January 5 in North America and Europe for the Xbox 360 and PC versions of the game at a cost of 400 BioWare Points or Microsoft Points. The DLC will be available for the PlayStation 3 later in January priced at $4.99.
Return to Ostagar allows players to exact their revenge and embark on a quest for the mighty arms and armor of the once great King Cailan when they revisit Ostagar, the site of the Grey Wardens' darkest hour, to reclaim the honor and learn the secrets of Ferelden's fallen king.
Aaryn Flynn, the General Manager and Vice President at BioWare Edmonton had the following to say:
"We are thrilled at the way the fans have embraced Dragon Age: Origins and we're excited to welcome them back into the game. Return to Ostagar represents BioWare's commitment to providing a steady stream of compelling post release content as we continue to expand the Dragon Age universe."
Return to Ostagar summons players to a new quest in which they will return to the fateful battleground in Ostagar where the Grey Wardens were nearly wiped out. Players will discover King Cailan's top-secret political agenda and go behind enemy lines to revisit a place that many feared had been lost to history.
