Good news today for PS3 owners: turns out Dragon Age: Origins for the PS3 is going to ship on Nov. 3rd, same as all the other versions. The word had been that the PS3 version was going to be held back until later in the month. I guess the Microsoft check didn’t clear or something.
Anyway, today we have a new trailer, this one introducing Oghren, the dwarf whose tale you’ll experience if you pick his origin story. Here is his intro:
Oghren, of House Kondrat, was once a promising member of the Warrior Caste who had earned great prestige in the dwarves’ gladiatorial proving grounds. When a Smith Caste family with plenty of money but few political connections offered their daughter in marriage, his family accepted the match. And then everything changed. His wife, Branka, invented a process that revolutionized the smelting process and was declared a Paragon—the first in a generation, forever ensuring an honored place among the ancestors. Oghren gladly joined his wife’s new noble house, but when Branka took her followers and vanished into the Deep Roads, she left him behind. He remains determined to find Branka again and learn what obsession keeps her hidden away from the rest of her kind.
Steven Blum, who lends his voice to Oghren, also voices Wolverine in a number of venues (The Super Hero Squad Show, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2). He sounds a little Wolverine-ish in this trailer, doesn’t he? I’m not sure that’s a good thing.
