What is Dragon Age Origins?

Dragon Age: Origins is a third-person single-player role-playing video game developed by BioWare's Edmonton studio and published by Electronic Arts. Set in the fictional kingdom of Ferelden during a period of civil strife, the player assumes the role of a warrior, mage or rogue coming from an elven, human, or dwarven background who must unite the kingdom to fight an impending invasion by demonic forces. BioWare describes Dragon Age: Origins as a "dark heroic fantasy set in a unique world", and a spiritual successor to their Baldur's Gate series of games, which took place in the Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting of the Dungeons & Dragons franchise. The game incorporates 6 "origins", the choice depending on the race and class chosen. For example, a dwarf noble begins the game as part of the dwarven royal family, whereas in the dwarf commoner origin, the player starts as a "lowborn" living in poverty. In the human noble origin, the player begins as a Cousland, one of the human noble families in Ferelden. Elven and human mages start their story off in the Ferelden's circle of magi. Origin stories determine the background of the player's character prior to the main events of the game's story, forming an introduction to the world (and a gameplay tutorial) while also comprising hours of play. Events of an individual origin are reflected in the game story and characters. Characters that the player meets during the origin story may reappear throughout the game, some as adversaries.
