‘Dragon Age: Origins — Awakening’ Expansion Announced And Dated For March

Dragon Age: Origins” thus far has produced Kate Mulgrew as a witch, music from Jared Leto’s band 30 Seconds to Mars and some ill-tasting darkspawn juice. As of March 16, 2010, you can add an expansion pack to that list when “Dragon Age: Origins — Awakening” launches.

“’Dragon Age: Origins – Awakening’ shows BioWare’s commitment to our fans by delivering new story-driven experiences which enrich the dark heroic fantasy universe our fans have come to know and love,” BioWare co-founder Dr. Ray Muzyka said in a press release. “The vibrant worldwide community of ’Dragon Age’ fans will relish uncovering the secret motivations of the darkspawn, revealing how the darkspawn continue to infest the world despite the defeat of the Archdemon.”

The game, which will require a copy of “Dragon Age: Origins” to play, is supposed to run about 15 hours and will allow for players to import and edit characters they’ve broken in from the core game. “Awakening” will place in the in the role of a Grey Warden Commander who’s been tasked with rebuilding the order of Grey Wardens and finding out how the darkspawn survived following the death of the Archdemon dragon.

In other news, these triple-tiered game titles are starting to make me wonder. When the inevitable day comes that we do see an expansion pack or DLC for an expansion pack, what punctuation will publishers use to set apart the fourth subtitle? Commas? Semicolons? Or has this happened already?
