About Dragon Age

Dragon Age: Origins is a single-player role-playing video game developed by BioWare’s Edmonton studio and published by Electronic Arts. It is the first game in the Dragon Age franchise. The game was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in November 2009, and for Mac OS X on December 21, 2009.

Set in the mythical kingdom of Ferelden during a period of civil strife, the player assumes the role of a warrior, mage or rogue who must unite the kingdom to fight an impending invasion by demonic forces. BioWare describes Dragon Age: Origins as a “dark heroic fantasy set in a unique world”, and a spiritual successor to their Baldur’s Gate series of games, which took place in the Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting of the Dungeons & Dragons franchise.

Fantasy roleplaying goes back to its dark and gritty roots with the Dragon Age RPG, the latest game from the company that brought you A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying and Mutants & Masterminds. Based on the critically-acclaimed Dragon Age: Origins computer game, theDragon Age RPG brings the excitement of BioWare’s rich fantasy world to the tabletop. Make your own heroes and control your own destiny as a Blight comes to Thedas once again.
