BioWare has gone ahead and granted your wishes for details about the upcoming Darkspawn Chronicles downloadable content for Dragon Age: Origins by passing along…well, a bunch of details.
The DLC, which releases on May 18, lets players step into the evil (yet surprisingly comfortable) shoes of the Darkspawn, and play as hurlock vanguard during a campaign set within an alternate history that kicks off with the death of your character.
If that’s not enough juicy info for you, try this out:
- Imagine a world without heroes, where the greatest among you never became a Grey Warden.
- Play through the Fall of Denerim from the perspective of the darkspawn.
- Complete the module and unlock an epic darkspawn item for use in Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age: Origins – Awakening.
- Use the “Enthrall” ability – recruit any darkspawn you encounter into your party.
Even though I’ve never played Dragon Age, I’m a big fan of alternate histories and parallel narratives, so Darkspawn Chronicles sounds kind of rad to me. But what do you diehard Dragon Age fans think?
