Dragon Age: Origins Darkspawn Chronicles, The (2010)

Alternate history DLC. One Grey Warden remains, one threat to the Archdemon: the King of Ferelden, Alistair. He has gathered allies and armies but the Archdemon has endless hordes of Darkspawn at her disposal and has got herself a Hurlock Vanguard (the player) to slay the heroes and ensure darkness triumphs.


Though it’s not at all obvious that this takes place in an alternate history where your would-be Grey Warden died in the initial joining ceremony and Alistair became the Warden-King who led Ferelden into battle against the Darkspawn, this is a fun expansion with something of a studio tour feel. Look there’s Arl Howe! Look there’s Ohgren! Ooh, there’s Leliana! No way, it’s Morrigan! Though a studio tour where you’re equipped with a hulking great sword and then proceed to mow down all the stars. Terrific fun.

This Dragon Age: Origins game contains strong, gory violence with an hilarious option to leave you peppered with gravity resistant blood splatters that are way too big.
