Bioware announced a few days ago that the Mac version of Dragon Age would soon be updated to version 1.03 and Mac users would also soon be able to access the downloadable content available to users on other platforms. Both the patch and the first of the DLC content, Return to Ostagar, should now be available. Dragon Age is powered by Transgaming's Cider Portability Engine.

Hello Mac Dragon Age fans,

Thanks to our partners at TransGaming, we are nearing the time when the remaining DLC will become available for the first time on the Mac version of Dragon Age: Origins! Starting soon, you'll be able to go beyond the origin and explore more of the Dragon Age experience!

On July 20, we will release the Return to Ostagar DLC and patch 1.03. We are also working with TransGaming on delivering the complete range of DLC releases shortly afterward, and will keep you posted on release dates for each of these.

Thank you for playing Dragon Age: Origins and we hope you enjoy your continued adventures in the upcoming DLC!

About Return to Ostagar:
Your memories of the battle of Ostagar will haunt you for years to come. It laid waste to your order and claimed the lives of many great men and women, including the brash young King Cailan and your mentor, Duncan.

Now, there are rumors that a fellow survivor of the battle has escaped from captivity and is seeking the Grey Wardens' help. The time has come for the Grey Wardens to make their return to Ostagar and exact their revenge upon the darkspawn.

King Cailan Theirin inherited a Ferelden at peace, and it frustrated him immensely. His father, beloved King Maric, had become a legend in his own lifetime, defeating the Orlesians to gain independence for the nation. To Cailan, that was the proper role of a king–rallying people against a common enemy. But he also believed his father's success had deprived him of the opportunity for greatness–Cailan's Ferelden was cursed by stability.

And so it was that young King Cailan, hungry for glory and eager to emulate the ancient legends, committed the armies of Ferelden to face the darkspawn at the earliest sign of the Blight. He took counsel from Grey Wardens, and bolstered his forces with foreign troops, even inviting soldiers from hated Orlais. This angered many who had served under Maric, but Cailan had no interest in their quaint national prejudices; the darkspawn and their archdemon master–these were threats worthy of a soon-to-be legendary king.

Whatever the reasons, Cailan and the Grey Wardens stood for Ferelden against the darkspawn. It should have been a decisive victory, but they were abandoned to face the horde alone.

Return to fallen Ostagar, discover the fate of a king, and reveal the true cost of betrayal.

Return to Ostagar requires Dragon Age and is available for $5. Check out the links below for more information.
