This roleplaying game is the unofficial successor of the "Baldurs Gate" series, which is very popular among genre fans. This time, the adventure takes place in the medieval-looking, shattered fantasy realm of Ferelden, which is haunted by the "Darkspawn" - a flock of dangerous monsters coming from the earth, astonishingly reminiscent of orcs. Led by a powerful arch-demon in dragon form, they plan to wipe all living creatures from the surface and usher in the reign of evil. This threat is countered by a fragile alliance of church followers, mages, and the "Grey Wardens". The latter is an elite unit of legendary warriors, whom the character joins as a recruit at the start of the game. Long ago, the Darkspawn were once put in their place, so their skills are the hope of the entire realm. Due to a betrayal by a fickle prince, the decisive battle is lost, the king is killed, and Ferelden now faces imminent doom. To master this dangerous threat, it is up to the player to make momentous decisions, travel with a group of adventurers to various locations, overcome challenges, and finally forge a powerful alliance of dwarves, elves, and humans. A decision-critical, emotional, adult-style, epic experience - this is Dragon Age: Origins for adult genre fans who have patience and perseverance, and above all, are willing to invest a lot of time.
