Posted by at 11:55 am on February 13, 2009


BioWare, a division of Electronic Arts, has announced the highly anticipated details of all six Origin Stories featured in the upcoming dark, heroic fantasy  Dragon Age: Origins. Each Origin Story starts the player off with a unique series of locations, characters and events that establish their motivations and lay the groundwork for the adventure to come.

With each Origin Story boasting several hours of unique game play, as well as challenging strategic combat and exploration, these 6 distinct preludes make  Dragon Age: Origins  the first BioWare game to offer not only multiple endings, but also multiple beginnings. Players will start their adventure in one of the following roles:

Dalish Elf

As one of the  last “true elves”, you were content to spend your life  wandering with your  clan…until a chance encounter with a relic of your people’s past threatens to tear you away from everything you’ve known.

City Elf

You have always lived under the heavy thumb of your human overlords, but when a local lord claiming his “privileg”with the bride shatters your wedding day, the simmering racial tensions explode in a rain of vengeance.

Dwarf Commoner

Born casteless in a land where rank is everything, bound as the lackey and thug of a local crime lord, you have spent your life invisible…until chance thrusts you into the spotlight, where you can finally prove whether you will be defined by your actions or your birth.

Dwarf Noble

The favored child of the dwarven king, you proudly take up your first military command…only to learn that the deadly intrigues of  dwarven politics  pose an even greater danger than that faced on the battlefield.


Gifted with a power  considered a dangerous curse by most, you have spent most of your life secluded in the remote tower of the Circle of Magi to be trained and watched closely by the dreaded templars. Now your final test is upon you — succeed and prove your strength, fail and you will perish.

Human Noble

Born to wealth and power second only to royalty, you find your training in both diplomacy and war put to the test when your  father’s castle is betrayed from within on the very night your elder brother is to lead the family’s forces to war.

The player’s choice of Origin Story lays the foundation for a  journey based on the character’s past experiences, establishing how they perceive the world and how the world perceives them. The choices the gamer makes during an Origin Story will influence the way the game unfolds, including different story elements, dialogue options and even plot branches, providing a wealth of replayability.
