Return to Ostagar, the downloadable content for Dragon Age: Origins that was scheduled for release today, has been delayed.
Announced in November, Return to Ostagar will take players back to the battlefield where King Cailan of Ferelden fell to the Darkspawn and the Grey Wardens' "darkest hour" began. The DLC was expected to be released today but gamers looking forward to more Dragon Age woke up to a somewhat less pleasant surprise instead.
"We're sorry but the planned Return to Ostagar downloadable content scheduled to launch on January 5th has been delayed for all platforms," BioWare Community Coordinator Chris Priestly wrote on the Dragon Age forums. "We will update you as new information becomes available."
That "new information" remains undisclosed at this point, so exactly why the DLC has been delayed or when we can expect to see it released remains unknown. We've asked BioWare to fill us in and in the meantime, we're keeping our eyes open and our fingers crossed. Hopefully this delay won't be a long one.
