Looks like Oghren the dwarf is back for the Awakenings expansion to Dragon Age: Origins, according to a tweet and subsequent post by BioWare today.
In case you are not familiar with Oghren, here’s a blurb on the diminutive fighter:
Oghren of Orzammar is known throughout Ferelden for fighting alongside the Grey Warden who halted the fifth Blight. Some say Oghren was the hero’s constant companion; others suggest he merely rode on the Warden’s coattails. But the stories all agree on two important points: that Oghren is a beast on the battlefield, and that he can easily imbibe liquids that would fell lesser men. After the archdemon was defeated, Oghren settled down with his old flame Felsi and had a child. Those who know him say that he was truly happy, at least for a time. But Oghren is a warrior born and bred, and, as he is fond of saying, you can take a warrior out of the fight, but you can never take the fight out of the warrior.
Those paying close attention may have noticed Oghren in the video released for Sigrun a while back.
Don’t forget – an inside look at Awakening will be live on X-fire Friday night.
Game’s out March 16.
