Witch Hunt marks the beginning of the end for Dragon Age: Origins. The downloadable adventure will be the last DLC BioWare releases for the original Dragon Age and finds you in pursuit of one of our favorite party members, the saucy, shapeshifter Morrigan.
Witch Hunt picks up about one year after the conclusion of Dragon Age: Origins. You can start a new main character for this quest, but in doing so, you’ll miss out on the opportunity to continue your relationship with Morrigan where it left off. Your search for Morrigan begins at Flemeth’s hut, where you discover a Dalish Grey Warden on the hunt for the mysterious shapeshifter and a mythical artifact she’s stolen.
During your quest, your loyal Mabari war hound will rejoin you. Ariane, a Dalish elf warrior and Finn, a human mage who finds himself leaving the Circle of Magi for his first real adventure, will also help as you search for the illusive Morrigan. Dragon Age: Origins’ snappy dialogue is back in full force. Fans of the saucy back-and-forth between Morrigan and Allistair in the original, can expect to witness some similarly sharp verbal barbs exchanged between the all-too-serious Ariane and the never ending snark from Finn.

Since this DLC adventure will only last about 2 hours, we don’t want to spoil anything for Dragon Age fans by giving away too many details. But we will say that the ending in this final chapter will vary greatly depending on how your relationship with Morrigan at the end of Dragon Age: Origins. You’ll also get lots of suggested hints about how some characters from the original game might impact the main plot in Dragon Age II.
Witch Hunt is scheduled to release on September 7th for the 360, PS3, and PC. If you’re a fan of Morrigan, we highly suggest that you consider downloading this final chapter. In the meantime, you can check out the teaser for Witch Hunt below.
