If you’ve ever wondered what happened to Morrigan after the end of Dragon Age: Origins, now’s your chance to find out!
Sarcastic and funny, dark and mysterious, Morrigan is one of the best characters in Origins, and the one who had the most intriguing send-off at the end of the game. “Witch Hunt,” available on PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 on Sep. 7 for 560 Microsoft/BioWare points or $6.99 on PSN, lets you uncover Morrigan’s fate, and confront her:
The dreaded Archdemon has been slain and the advance of the darkspawn halted by a lone, heroic Grey Warden. The kingdom rejoices, but at least one question remains: what happened to Morrigan? The sorceress joined the Wardens cause, but it is said her true purpose was not revealed until the eve of the last battle. She vanished into the shadows, and while rumors claimed she crossed over the mountains into Orlais no trace of her path could be found. She was never heard from again… until now.
Nearly a year has passed since the Archdemon’s death, and word has reached the Wardens that Morrigan has returned to Ferelden. She has been sighted in the southern wilderness where she was first encountered. Is it truly her? If it is, then why has is she here and what secret does she carry with her? The Warden heads into the forest to find out and tie up this last loose end once and for all.
Here are a few screenshots from the DLC:
Like most of the Dragon Age DLCs, you can import your character from Origins or Awakenings into “Witch Hunt,” or create a new one. “Witch Hunt” also gives you “powerful rewards” (read: new weapons or magical jewelry) that can be transferred into Awakenings or Origins.
You’ll be joined in this quest by Dalish warrior Ariane, and two other yet-to-be-revealed characters.
Although at a mere 560 points and likely to offer only a few hours of gameplay, this final DLC for the original Dragon Age will probably be one of the most-downloaded DLCs given the interest in Morrigan’s character — and a nice bridge until Dragon Age 2 is released on March 8, 2011.
