Dragon Age: Origins is now available for preorder on Steam. Should you purchase the normal version, or spend an extra
$5 $15 on the shiny Digital Deluxe Edition?
Steam is unlocking Dragon Age: Origins on November 3rd, and it's got two different flavors of the game to choose form. Both versions come with the preorder exclusive Memory Band experience ring, The Stone Prisoner DLC, and the Mass Effect 2 crossover Blood Dragon Armor, as well as a Steam exclusive ring called The Wicked Oath, which adds 10% to critical strike damage, improves your armor penetration, and helps you regenerate stamina faster in combat.
So what do you get for an extra $15 in the Digital Deluxe Edition?
First off, there's even more new content in the form of Warden's Keep, featuring quests that explore the Grey Wardens' original expulsion from Ferelden, new items and spells, and a base of operations where your character can store his or her stuff. The deluxe edition also comes with a special helmet, a magic staff, and a grimoire that increases your attributes. All that, plus a selection of desktop wallpapers and a collection of music from the soundtrack for only $15 above the normal price. <s?Sounds like a pretty good deal to me.<.s>
Both editions are now available for pre-purchase via Steam.
UPDATE: Steam has corrected the price for the Digital Deluxe version to $64.99, $10 more than it was originally listed for. I have modified the post accordingly.
