BioWare has updated the Dragon Age: Origins site, and it reveals the Dwarven fortress of Kal’Hirol in Awakening.

Here’s the blurb:

The dwarven fortress of Kal’Hirol was long known as a center of learning for the smith caste. Its workshops are where Paragon Hirol conceived his famous improvements to golem resilience and power, and where Hirol’s favorite student developed a method for storing refined lyrium that is still used today. These breakthroughs brought Kal’Hirol great prosperity; its passageway are said to have glittered with gold and silver. But the fall of Kal’Hirol is shrouded in mystery. All that is known is that the fortress’s elite one day showed up at Orzammar’s great doors, exhausted and in despair over the loss of their home.

Gotta hand it to the writers at BioWare, that’s some nice fantasy there.

There’s 11 bits of art for the fortress through here.

The expansion hits March 16 for PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 worldwide.

It will be a downloadable only title for PSN in Europe.

    and even though th first one was amazing i’m still not going to pay nearly full price for a mini expansion. especially when this should have been part of the game. *the ones who read the books know what i’m talking about.
