***Note: Return to Ostagar has been shortened to RTO for this review.

Content/Is it worth it?

RTO offers a quick little side-trip in the journey that is Dragon Age: Origins. If you haven’t guessed by the name, you go back to Ostagar. It offers a little more lore that anyone who loves a good story and reading the codexes will find interesting. Also, anyone who wants to get some good old revenge for the King, this is the pack for you. As with the previous DLC packs this adds new items to the game but no spells or talents. For a mere 400 MSP, or $5 USD, this is a great but short pack only for those true fans of the game.


There is one little achievement worth 25GS that cannot be missed, which is awarded for completing the DLC’s main quest. Nice and simple addition to your total score.

Overall = 10/10

Closing Comments: It isn’t very long or very fancy, but you get some cool armour, some new lore and closure on the dramatic events that took place early on in the game for a mere $5. Only recommend for fans of the game as they are the only ones who will really appreciate this.

So what’s the story surrounding this DLC? You and your band of merry companions have heard of a survivor from Ostagar hiding somewhere in the Bann Loren’s lands. Eager as always (I hope) you set off to find this man only to learn that there is a chest hidden in Ostagar with some important documents pertaining to the Grey Wardens of Orlais. You set off back to the snow-covered Ostagar ruin which has now been overrun by Darkspawn in an attempt to gather these documents as well as recovering the lost weapons and armour of King Cailian.

The DLC costs 400MP’s and adds very little to the original game for this price. A new quest in which you are to return to Ostagar; King Calian’s armour set and weapon; Duncan’s blades; various random loot; some back-story into why the Grey-wardens of Orlais never arrived to battle and finally a nice 25G achievement that cannot be missed.

Is this DLC worth it? I would personally say yes, because as a fan of Dragon Age I found the armour and weapons as well as the back story quite interesting and nice to have. The armour and weapons are decent and have stuck by my Sten character throughout the game, however you could probably find better. From a completionist point of view you will need this DLC to gather the 100%, but you’ll be glad to know the achievement is un-missable although slightly misleading, you actually have to complete the DLC to acquire it which shouldn’t take very long at all. The DLC isn’t the longest in the world even by short DLC terms. However it does allow a bit of pay-back if you want to get back at those dirty Darkspawn for killing the king and Duncan.

However if you aren’t particularly a fan or aren’t bothered too much with the completion then you might want to skip this as it doesn’t add anything that is going to radically change your gameplay. Albeit maybe a few very easy Darkspawn kills to get you closer to their respective achievements. I bought the ultimate Edition of Dragon age and so I got this DLC with it alongside all the others, brand new for only £15 so that might be a consideration for any potential buyers out there as it’s a lot cheaper to buy a new copy with all the DLC for £15 than buying all the DLC. It also makes this DLC seem a bit more worth it to those who aren’t particularly HUGE fans of Dragon Age.
