Packaging downloadable content onto retail discs has become a routine among publishers lately. Fallout 3, Borderlands, and even Uncharted 2 are all titles that have released a Game of the Year Edition with DLC included. But someone messed up on Dragon Age: Origins…
Dragon Age: Origins Ultimate Edition was just released to the EU regions last Friday and BioWare have confirmed that they have made a massive error. The purpose of these types of collections is to package all of the downloadable expansions onto one disc that were originally released digitally. Along with the Dragon Age: Origins – Awakening expansion, the Ultimate Edition includes the following DLC releases:
- The Stone Prisoner
- Warden’s Keep
- Return to Ostagar
- The Darkspawn Chronicles
- Leliana’s Song
- The Golems of Amgarrak
- Witch Hunt
- Feastday Gifts
- Feastday Pranks
But the problem is, the PS3 version of the game does not contain Return to Ostagar. At all. It’s just not on the disc. Not that the Blu-Ray disc can’t handle it, as the US version of the game has the content. The online producer of the Dragon Age franchise Fernando Melo has come on to the official BioWare Forums to address the issue.
While there is a DLC listed with this name, it appears to be the contents of one of the other DLCs. Our sincere apologies for this error.
If you are unfortunate enough to experience this error , be sure to contact EA Customer Support. If you provide your product code (check near the bottom of the game’s spine and the product id should begin with “BLES”), your region’s EA Representative will give you a voucher to download this DLC pack from the PSN Store. It defeats the purpose of a compilation release, but at least EA is rectifying the situation. Hopefully this will be the last time something like this happens.
