BioWare Bundles Everything Dragon Age Into One Ultimate Edition

Gamers who have been holding out on buying Dragon Age: Origins look like geniuses today, as BioWare has officially announced an all-in-one Ultimate Edition bundle for its hit spiritual successor to Baldur’s Gate. And it will be available for all three platforms: PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

The complete suite of Dragon Age: Origins content, including the base game, the Awakening expansion pack, and all seven of the main DLC add-ons (plus the Feastday Gifts and Feastday Pranks packs, according to GameStop), will be included in the Ultimate Edition. BioWare says all that content costs a total of $114 when sold separately — but will only cost newcomers $60. That’s an incredible deal for new Dragon Age adventurers, but also kinda cruel to those who have been supporting the game from the beginning.

GameStop lists an October 12th ship date for the Dragon Age: Origins Ultimate Edition, though I’ve read elsewhere that the release date will be October 26th. Either way, it’s coming soon.
