Dragon Age: Origins Awakening is an expansion pack to fantasy game Dragon Age: Origins developed by BioWare.


The game's story continues where Dragon Age: Origins ended. The protagonist becomes a commander of the order of The Gray Knights which acquire a manor in their protectorate. The players arrive at the castle, where the creatures of the Darkness still attack humans even after the murder of their leader. The Knights find information that several Darkness creatures became sentient and began their investigation.


The game's core mechanics are largely the same as the base game with several additions. Now the players have to take care of the land in their possession, making decisions about building up new defenses (by looking for ores and purchasing new buildings).

The story takes 10 to 15 hours to complete. There are many side quests present in the game apart from the main story. Unlike the base game, you cannot romance any of the Knights as there is no love story whatsoever in the expansion pack.

The players are free to create whatever character they like, but the story does not depend as much as it did on the player character's race. There are three specializations with several classes in them. That makes it very easy for the players to create a character to fit their own playstyle.

Dragon Age: Origins Awakening reviews and comments

EA loves money and make money on DLC, forgetting about the presence of bugs in the game. The Addon for Dragon Age is no exception. Surprised by the number of bugs, but it has been 4 years. And in fact in the game almost there were no bugs. Except that related to DLC. And then the corpses hang in the air, then the inability to complete the quest, the missing items themselves. But Most of all the last choice between the protection of the city and the tower. You do all the upgrades of the tower, you go to save the city. They Say that the tower is destroyed, all died. And already in the epilogue says that everyone is alive-healthy, all cool, you're cool. And who to believe after that? But Despite such errors, everything is pretty good. Except that Overpower-abilities with which all bosses die even before doing anything. WELL, the Dragons were not enough. Dragon age is the same. More Steam as always otburnt. You must use this product for at least 5 minutes before you write a review (2 min.). But when you run the addon, the game starts and time is protected by it.

Dragon Age™: Origins Awakening-Mor is defeated, but is it the end? Your Grey Guardian The savior of all Ferelden goes to the Fortress of Guardians-the Tower of Vigil. But it was attacked by Darkspawn, they came out of nowhere, and moreover one generation can speak. And It's up to you to rake all this ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ to ♥ about and learn the cause of this attack. The Plot, though not great, Awakening to pass for 12 hours, but interesting and makes you think about it all. A Lot of additional tasks, as a board with ads, and complete quests with several solutions, depending on the ending. This is also A plus of the restores Tower Vigil, looking for the Grey Guards ore for weapons and armor. By the Way will help you in this Master Wade, the same blacksmith who made us armor of dragon skin. Also in the adventures of us will be accompanied by our loyal companions, 5 new and old Ogren. All of them will pass the Rite of enlightenment and become full-fledged Gray Guards. In addition, added new skills that allow you to create runes, as well as a couple of specializations and abilities. Of course, added a couple of usable compositions again affecting the soul. Only the graphics and the combat system did not change, but it is for the better. In General, I liked the Awakening, bugs have not met, only one quest did not have passage. But This is all the little things, because I was once again able to plunge into this world not for a long time and with pleasure. If you compare the Awakening with other additions to Dragon Age: Origins, it will definitely be the best among them, and in it the only present Russian voice. Of Course 10 out of 10 Tons of different and interesting content, prolonging your journey, and what else is needed for happiness?
