BioWare has announced plans to release the character creator for Dragon Age: Origins as a separate PC application on October 13.
Oh yeah - it's free too.
The character creator will let you get creative with character customization from the game, which then you can save and use when the PC version is released in November.
Images of your character can also be uploaded onto the game's social networking which is expected to launch the same day as the character creator.
More information can be found over on the official forums.
