Dragon Age: Origins 'Ultimate Collection' Rated by OFLC

By Xav de Matos, Aug 26, 2010 8:40am PDT If an OFLC listing is to be believed, Dragon Age: Origins will receive a much needed "Ultimate Edition," which will presumably bundle the role-playing game with its mountain of downloadable content.

Discovered by Joystiq, the listing by the Australian ratings board is the second hint that Dragon Age would see a retail re-release. Earlier this month, GameStop.com listed (and then quickly removed) a Dragon Age: Origins "Ultimate Edition" for release on the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. Although the listing did not detail the disc's contents, it dated the release for October 12 with a $60 price-point.

The second slip-up comes hot off the heels of new DLC for the game, which is set to conclude the tale woven in Origins. With Dragon Age 2 due out in March 2011, it seems like the perfect time to get a DLC-packed re-release out on store shelves.

Shacknews has contacted EA for comment on a possible "Ultimate Edition" but we suspect the company will remain mum until the new "Witch Hunt" DLC has been released.

  • The Dragon Age DLC has been a bust for me. DLC that didn't include my character from the main campaign. DLC that included gear that couldn't go over to the game's expansion. An expansion that gutted one of the best parts of the original game.

    The greatest flaw in the idea that DLC will enhance an RPG like this is that it takes a lot of time, effort, and care to make additions to the game. This content would be fine if it was $2-3 or if it was free as incentive to purchase the game, but when you're charging $5-7 and it is either incredibly short, inconsequential, or not even connected to your hero that you care about, well it seems like the company didn't really think it through.

    I'm hoping that the more focused narrative in Dragon Age 2 will lead to a superior experience, even if its regrettable they're taking away the Origins aspect of the first game to attempt it. Then again, I always played human, so it doesn't really bother me.
