The soon to be released Darkspawn Chronicles add-on for Dragon Age: Origins was only just a leaked announcement until yesterday when the official site delivered some details. The city of Denerim “must burn” according to the press release and it’s down to you, a Darkspawn hurlock vanguard, to lead your fellow uglies into battle. Commanding genlocks, hurlocks, shrieks, and ogres will all become second nature to you.
On top of that, the DLC offers an alternate history of the Dragon Age storyline; “what if your character had died in the Joining ceremony, and the Grey Wardens marched under Alistair’s command instead?” I’m guessing it’ll be more than just your team calling Alistair boss then. Completing the DLC will unlock an “epic Darkspawn item in DA:O and Awakening.” And all for 400 MS Points/£3.40/$4.80, I suppose that is epic. Darkspawn Chronicles is out May 18th on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
