Ships Ahoy - Dragon Age: Origins

BioWare announces Dragon Age: Origins is now available in North America, offering the RPG they are calling the spiritual successor to Baldur's Gate. The game is available for Windows, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3, and multiple bits of DLC are available for each platform. Here's a bit:

EDMONTON, Alberta--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Leading video game developer BioWare™, a division of Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:ERTS) announced today that the highly-anticipated game Dragon Age™: Origins is now available on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system and PC. Dragon Age: Origins introduces a dark and gritty approach to the fantasy genre where players must make ruthless decisions and be willing to sacrifice their friends and loved ones for the greater good of mankind. Several downloadable content packs are also now available, including Warden’s Keep, The Stone Prisoner and the Blood Dragon Armor.

“The launch of Dragon Age: Origins is the fantasy event of 2009,” said Dr. Ray Muzyka, co-founder of BioWare and Group General Manager of the RPG/MMO Group at EA. “I am extremely proud of the entire development team - and we’re all very excited to release one of our best games yet!”

BioWare has also launched a robust package of downloadable content (DLC) for Dragon Age: Origins. The Stone Prisoner gives players access to new environments, items, hours of additional gameplay and the mighty stone golem Shale who can become one of the most powerful party members in the game. The Warden’s Keep premium DLC provides players of Dragon Age: Origins with a new dungeon-exploring adventure, new loot including a set of ancient Grey Warden armor, a chance to gain two of six mysterious new abilities, a new base complete with merchants and a party chest to store their hard-earned items.

Wow Thirty seconds into playing this game and I have already come across blaring problems.

Does not bode well. I recommended waiting for a demo copy and or some patches.
Download code redemption through online website is sketchy.
Will suffer the game awhile and see if it picks up.
