I don't know if it's supposed to be available or not, but it's available to purchase on the US Marketplace.

http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-US/games/offers/0ccf0017-0000-4000-8000-0000454108c0?cid=SLink

I have not downloaded it yet as I won't be able to play it for another 9 hours.

EDIT: The DLC has been pulled until further notice. Who knows when it will be back.

Just got it from the European/Swedish marketplace. Playing it right now,weird that it's not showing up on the news though.

Already downloaded it and beat it, took about 30 minutes. Pretty meh in my opinion, but you get a few cool items.

Wow 30 mins, kind of sucky. But I just bought it too, lets hope its good.

Canada has it as well. Any bugs or anything?

Heads up: I leveled up during the DLC and all the specializations I had unlocked (besides the ones I had active on a character) became relocked. Other people on social.bioware.com are reporting this issue as well.

Does this include 1 achievement? And also is it working or is it glitched?

Yeah, it includes a 25 point achievement and it popped just fine. As I said above, the only bug I've found is the specialization one. Everything else works fine.

Finally. Although too short, still fun to play. Also glad they fixed the DLC achievements from early on.

By what I am reading over on the BW boards this is a bit unexpected on thier end. It looks like MS might have jumped the gun or something because the devs seemed to be just as surprised as we are. It took them all day to get an official post up about it.

they wouldnt "delay" it and release it unnanounced unless there were problems with it or it wasnt worth the money.

definetly waiting on reviews for this one first

Only 1 achievement? The achievement says defeat the Ogre that killed King Cailan. I thought Duncan killed the Ogre? Watch the cinematics at the end of the Battle of Ostagar. lol

Just played it. Only took about 30 mins and there is nest to no plot.

For 400 points its not bad, but its nothing special.

I updated the guide to explain how to get it(although it's almost impossible to miss honestly).

Yeah, it seems to be really glitchy right now. Every time I tried to purchase it, it would say it was free and then give an error.

This is from the BioWare forums:

Hello Dragon Age fans

This morning a title update on the Xbox 360 for Dragon Age: Origins was made available in preparation for the release of Return to Ostagar. This title update introduced a previously undetected issue that causes specialization classes to not work correctly in Dragon Age: Origins. We are removing Return to Ostagar from Xbox Live until the issue is resolved and are recommending that you do not download the title update. If you have already performed the update, we apologize for this and are working hard to ensure a fix is available as soon as possible.

We will provide more information to you when it is available.


Here's the link if you want to keep track:

So I come home
Read the update
Get all excited to go get it.
Can't find it on xblmarketplace
Go to check on the PC it has a page with it to download free o.0 i was like no way. Then it tells me that offer is not available in my region. I go to my xbl and it says theres no DLC in existance.
I'm like WTF, then i read forum and find out it's been taken off.. way to go Bioware. Get my hopes up and destroy it >.>

I was also gonig to pick this up after work today to get the achievement from it.

From what I can understand, I should not bother trying to play my current game at the moment, until there is a new title update?

Either that or clear your cache and play offline. It seems the title update is screwing up specializations and possibly the Recruiter achievement.

I'm just gonna play the damn game with or without this glitch. . . . I could care less about my specializations atm

I just hope the "fix" they are putting out doesn't just fix the locking.. but rather they re-unlock the ones i have. I've already completed the game, I don't want to have to play through a few more times to get all the specs again for the expansion

As everywhere else it was withdrawn shortly after its release due to these update problems. I was fast enough to get it when it was launched though.

Strange enough that the Ostagar DLC has not been brought back online, I thought the root of all problems was the update (which is removed easily), not the DLC itself o_O

you make a good point. . . . so I say to myself "Wtf? Wheres my DLC?!" for christ sake if its not out this Tuesday I've given up hope for it. . . . really. . . I have.

That's sort of what I'm thinking. I downloaded it before it got pulled and got the update but haven't played it yet. So if I understand correctly, is the only thing that could happen is that my specializations get screwed up for that one save? Everything else works? The achievement still pops?

I bought the DLC when it was available, and also got the title update. However, I did not play through the DLC until after I removed the update from my system. When I played through, I did not get the achievement.

Based on my experience, I am under the impression that the RTO DLC requires the title update. If true, then it makes sense that the DLC hasn't been put back up for sale; since people would not be able to get the achievement otherwise.

I found out that the title update also corrupts your perfectionist achievement as well. . . . my friend was on his last ending and it didnt unlock for him lets just say he was a sad panda.

Damn, I was about to ask about this. I just have one more ending to go (if I remember rightly what I've already done) and got worried when I heard about cross-game achievements being messed up. Guess I'll wait til they fix things before finishing the game again. Thanks for letting us know about this!

That's actually a bug in the latest patch. To fix clear your system cache. You may have to load an old saved game that has them unlocked and save it again. But that part is sometimes unnecessary.

This is not always the case. I downloaded the update and had only finished two of the four endings. This was the only achievement that I needed (other than the RTO one) and I just went through the end-game and never leveled up when prompted (since I knew about the glitch) and the achievement unlocked just fine. Maybe your friend is experiencing something else.

This didnt happen on my save file after downloading the patch, i had only done my first ending, downloaded the patch, then finished my other endings and still got my perfectionist achieve, didnt get my recruiter one however until i removed the patch, same with blight-queller

I finished all the achievements for this game back on 12/27/09 so I really wouldn't had to worry about the title update messing up any of my achievements. I didn't get RTO anyway because I missed it, so I'm not really too worried about it. Just wish they hurry up and fix it so I can 100% this game AGAIN!

Yessir! Everything unlocks like it should! You just might have to repeat one more part of the requirement to unlock it.
