Dragon Age: Origins pre-order, collector’s edition, piles of swag available

Pre-orders for the anticipated BioWare and EA title, Dragon Age: Origins, have opened along with bunches of goodies for the good girls and boys.

For starters, anyone who purchases the game new will receive some DLC at no additional cost. “The Stone Prisoner” is an additional chapter for the game with a new character, environments, and items extending the gameplay by a few hours. Also, buyers will get the Blood Dragon Armor, a piece of equipment that can be used in Dragon Age: Origins as well as BioWare’s Mass Effect 2. For anyone who pre-orders the title will receive the Memory Band, another handy piece of equipment along with other retailer-specific items. So depending on which outlet you pre-order from, you will get different special prize.

But wait, there’s more! For only $74.99 (console) or $64.99 (PC), there will be a limited collector’s edition of Origins with even more prizes. Shelling out the extra cash will get you a unique steel case, a cloth world map, a making-of documentary DVD, a digital version of the soundtrack, trailers, wallpapers, strategy tips and three exclusive in-game items.

Dragon Age: Origins will be released on November 3 in North America and November 6 in Europe for Xbox 360 and PC. The PS3 version will follow later in November.
