While BioWare are clearly set for masses of downloadable content for both Dragon Age: Origins and the upcoming Mass Effect 2, Eurogamer.cz claim to have uncovered details about a possible retail expansion, titled Dragon Age: The Awakening.
A quick Google translate of the article reveals more about the supposed expansion, namely that the subject was brought up on the BioWare forums and promptly deleted, adding weight to the rumour. The expansion is said to be a 10-15 hour experience and cost roughly two thirds of the full games price, when it releases in March.
According to the article, The Awakening will follow the Dragon Age: Origins story chronologically with users playing as an entirely new main character, with his own prologue. The level cap is also said to increase along with new enemies and equipment.
An official announcement from Electronic Arts is said to come in January.
