Burn, baby! Burn! Morrigan returns in final Dragon Age: Origins DLC

The bitch, it appears, is back. From monstrous Archedemons to conspiring ex-girlfriends, developer BioWare has announced plans to end Dragon Age: Origins' extensive DLC run with a full-on swan song for Morrigan; the heroic renegade witch of the Kokari wilds and/or willing demonspawn incubator (depending, of course, on how you rolled).

Arriving in virtual stores September 7th, Witch Hunt will send gamers into the southern wilderness after it‘s revealed that Morrigan has returned to Ferelden with all-too-unsavoury intentions, instead of slinking quietly into the night with her dirty little secrets as promised.

In today's press release, BioWare explains, “her plans and her whereabouts have remained a mystery... until now. But whether you seek answers, revenge, or reconciliation with your lost love, you may find more than you bargained for.”

(Cue ominous gospel choir.)

It looks like BioWare has saved the baby mamma drama for last.  And whether or not you opted to go the distance or drop Morrigan like a bad habit at the first roadside tavern, expect your deeds to catch up to you in this, the final journey of Ferelden's last grey warden.

    Heres a hint you name the kid hawk and he then becomes the main character of DA2 and thats why he can summon dragon hands...arch demon anyone? Then again that would mean canon wise you were evil... interesting...
  • IIBrownieII - August 26, 2010 1:54 p.m.

    Wahey! Looking forward to this... completed DA about five times but currently powering through a 'perfect' playthrough to carry over into a 'perfect' awakenings playthrough... hopefully I can do those before 7th sept and tackle Morri with everything fresh in mind. Should be a fun and time consuming experiance :D Released the same day as Lair of the ShadowBroker aswell Bioware... you spoil us!!!

    Oh crap, I just hope Morrigan don't sue my character for back payments of child support. Time to hunt the baby's mama! Pedro.... daddy's on his way! It must be tough for him being short and stubbier than the rest of the kids. The damn witch must of told him that his dad was a gay elf. ...(lights a torch)

    Anyone who hasn't got around to finishing a playthrough with a human male character (and took Morrigan up on her offer rather than pass the 'duty' on to someone else)has a compelling incentive to do so now. It'd be better than watching Alistair (or 'the other guy')and Morrigan's second hand baby mama drama or two BFFs having a falling out,that's for sure.

    Well if you died in the first game you don't have to play it.
  • Doctalen - August 26, 2010 12:48 a.m.

    Huh, okay, is this like Awakening where your forced into the story regardless of your choices in Origins?
  • MACGRUBER7693 - August 26, 2010 12:11 a.m.

    Or at least should have been the expansion.
  • MACGRUBER7693 - August 26, 2010 12:10 a.m.

    I know it wouldn't be as involving for a person that isn't romantically involved with morrigan or was a girl but damnit this should of been dragon age 2.
  • Starplatinum - August 25, 2010 11:25 p.m.

    HOly shit! I might have to dust off my dragon age origins! I paid no attention to the DLCs and such since I didnt wanna spend any more money but dammit i want closure with Morrigan! That saucy minx!
  • H2A2I00 - August 25, 2010 10:20 p.m.

    ah man i lost my data for dragon age now i need to play it again to see what happens I always wondered what happened since I chose for her to be my baby mama :)
  • Felixthecat - August 25, 2010 10:06 p.m.

    I thought this was gonna be about Morrigan from Darkstalkers. *Sigh*, oh well.
  • juicenpancakes - August 25, 2010 9:57 p.m.

    Yes, yes, I know. Matt mentioned the baby in the article. I just remember talking about that option in forums about a year ago, and I had to be really careful so I didn't piss people off with the spoiler. Force of habit. -- "demonspawn incubator" made me giggle, by the way.
  • juicenpancakes - August 25, 2010 9:54 p.m.

    I unfortunately had to sell my copy of Dragon Age a few months ago. I was planning on just buying DA2, but now I may have to re-purchase DAO just to play this DLC. I was really interested in the Morrigan storyline. Spoilers for Dragon Age: Origins -- (if anyone actually cares) I did the really interesting option at the end of the game in which Morrigan had my child and left forever and said to not follow her. It was actually kind of sad, for I had become pretty invested in the story. So I really want to see what ended up happening with my offspring!

    I hope she won't bring her *gulps* mother... she was a BIG surprise!!!
