DRAGON AGE: Origins reaches Triple Platinum sales

  Leading video game developer BioWare, a division of Electronic Arts Inc., announced today that Dragon Age: Origins has sold-in over 3.2 million* units worldwide. The "RPG of the Year" as named by Game Informer, G4, SpikeTV, AOL.com, and PC Gamer, Dragon Age: Origins has been hailed by Seth Schiesel of The New York Times as, "...perhaps the best electronic game made yet." Dragon Age: Origins has won over 30 "Best of 2009" awards and has an average review score of 91**. This staggering critical and commercial success makes Dragon Age: Origins the sixth consecutive blockbuster from BioWare, alongside Baldur’s Gate, Neverwinter Nights, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Jade Empire and Mass Effect.

  Since the release of Dragon Age: Origins in fall 2009, the studio has continued to enchant gamers with additional content packs including Warden’s Keep and Return to Ostagar. The upcoming expansion pack, Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening is set to launch on March 16, 2010.

"This is a tremendous start for the Dragon Age franchise and we are extremely pleased with the great reception the game has already received from critics and fans worldwide," said Dr. Ray Muzyka, co-founder, BioWare and Group General Manager of the RPG/MMO Group of EA. "Our team is dedicated to crafting high quality, engaging new adventures and stories in the world of Ferelden for our fans!"

  Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening, BioWare’s next installment in the Dragon Age lore, occurs following the events of Dragon Age: Origins. Players assume the role of a Grey Warden Commander entrusted with rebuilding the order of Grey Wardens and tasked to uncover the mystery of how the darkspawn survive after the slaying of the Archdemon. How players choose to rebuild their order, resolve the conflict with the mysterious "Architect," and determine the fate of the darkspawn are just some of the many intriguing moral choices that will shape each player’s heroic journey. Players will be able to import their character from Dragon Age: Origins or start out as a new Grey Warden from the neighboring land of Orlais.

  Dragon Age: Origins received "Best of 2009" awards from a wide range of respected media outlets around the world, including USAToday.com, CNN.com, MSNBC.com, The Associated Press, Game Informer, GameSpot, IGN, and many more. The game has also inspired a tremendous response from gamers as BioWare’s online community skyrocketed to more than 5 million registered users, helping to make DragonAge.com the most visited site in EA’s network in 2009, including EA.com.

  Dragon Age: Origins is available now for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and the PC and is rated ‘M’ for Mature by the ESRB, ‘18+’ by PEGI, and 18 by the BBFC.
