For those of you who have played Dragon Age: Origins, or have seen the videos of the Battle of Ostagar, you’ll know how devastating a blow the battle was for the Grey Wardens, further deepening them in their plight. BioWare announced today that we will be able to revisit the dark scene with the upcoming DLC, Return to Ostagar. Quests leading us back to the site will hopefully allow us to avenge Kind Cailan’s brutal death by searching out his armor and arms. We’re promised to uncover some secrets along the way, which will undoubtedly add to the already detailed storyline, and hopefully provide some more insight into the unique personality that King Cailan was known for.

The DLC releases this holiday season for all three platforms running at $4.99 for the PS3, 400 BioWare points for the PC, and 400 Microsoft Points for the 360.
