Dragon Age ...Something Coming February 1

Tucked away within retail copies of the Dragon Age: Origins expansion Awakening is an indication that ....something is coming on February 1, 2011, 1UP reveals.

Exactly what that something is remains unclear--it could be anything from another expansion to a full-fledged sequel to a new book--though it's likely to be that mysterious "Dragon Age Title TBA" publisher Electronic Arts recently said would hit PC, console and handheld in that timeframe.

Developer BioWare previously stated that Dragon Age: Origins--released on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in November 2009--could have up to two year's worth of downloadble add-ons. As for Awakening, the RPG's first true expansion pack, it hits PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on March 16, priced at $39.99 and requiring a copy of the original.

      Is it too long? DId you kill someone you didn't want to kill? What killed your spirit?

      You must be a fan of linear JRPGs :p

        Dragon Age is about as non-linear as a piece of string.

          true true... there are ''different'' paths in the game but it eventually plays out the same. I am yet to play a totally open ended game. any suggestions? :D

          Fallout 3 was kinda open ended but still you weren't able to be bad for example since you's lose a lot of potential quests and stuff.

            Compared to what? GTA? Okay. Final Fantasy XIII? I don't think so. It's a matter of opinion. You can go through DA:O many time and make different choices that don't effect the game's plot, but will effect your experience. To me that's non-linear.

              well for you. I want a game where you can do what ever you want and play how ever you want and have any ending you want :P

      It's been slow going for me too. I'm still working through it, but am not really enjoying the battles as much as I thought I would. And so far, the characters seem pretty generic too. Perhaps it'll pick up as I go...

      (I loved the BG series btw, but have never had much luck with 3d RPGs...)

      Ditto. I cannot stand my companions, I don't find the main threat to be very threatening, (and it's dull besides), and I'd much rather ride off somewhere and let the whole lame country burn.
