The developers describe this installment as a successor of Baldur’s Gate series, though it isn’t based on Dungeons and Dragons. It is based in a fantasy world created by BioWare where all stories and battles of the game take place. Thus, it is where take place the following extensions of the Dragon Age.
In Dragon Age Origins, the player assumes the role of a rogue, mage or warrior to choose between elves, human or dwarves. The game story takes place in the Kingdom of Ferelden during a period of a terrible civil war. Like an actual hero, you have to unite the tropes of the resistance in a single army with the purpose of fighting the enemies and the demonic forces, and stopping the invasion and destruction of the Kingdom Ferelden. You have a lot of characters and heroes among to choose, each one with special abilities and features. Besides, you can be one of the last grey wards of the kingdom, destroy the demonic, save the rest and rebuilt it.
Depending on the race and the class you choose at the beginning, you will begin the game with different origin story. For instance, if you have chosen to be an Elf mage, you will start in the Circle of Magic of Ferelden's, however, if you have chosen an Elf Commoner, you will start in a separated area of the Capital of Ferelden. Those different origins will determinate your background of the gameplay in the main story. It is very interactive since your moral decisions will affect the game development. Feel free of choosing between being good or evil and that decision will affect the whole plot.
The controls of this game may be a little tricky for beginners since you have to be aware of several factors, such as your movement, the camera movement or the fights. For instance, with W and S you move your characters from the top or the bottom of your PC screen, while with A and D you move the camera. Also, you have to control the mouse to decide if running or walking, or to attack or target your enemies.
