Dragon Age: Origins writer David Gaider thinks it's time for a "PS5-era bells and whistles" remaster, presumably with 4K visuals running at 60fps, with haptic integration, and we can't help but agree.
Gaider was musing on Twitter that, given the current appetite for high-quality remasters and remakes from the 2000s (such as the recently released Dead Space and the upcoming Resident Evil 4), it might be time for us to return to the now-classic RPG.
In the replies, Gaider plays down the chances of such a project being greenlit, however, noting that "I suspect EA would only do it if they thought it would sell like *gold-plated* hotcakes. They've... never really gotten DA, or understood why it sold better than Mass Effect, was my impression."
Dragon Age: Dreadwolf is the next entry in the series, and we haven't had official word on the project in a little while now. Rumour is that the title is still a ways off yet.
What do you think, would you like to see a PS5-style remaster or remake of Dragon Age: Origins? Alistair must be getting lonely after so long. Keep the flame alive in the comments section below.

I'd get it Day 1 if it ever happened as it is still a classic to this day. The combat is really basic by today's standards, but the game as a whole still holds up. I don't expect it to ever happen though unfortunately.
That’s be cool, but combat needs a complete redo. I hate it’s current form. I’ve only played the beginning, but I need to play more of it.
Literally so many of the big games of this year a remakes. Can we just,
Have developers make new games of old series with newer engines instead of reselling us the same 360/PS2 era games.
I get it’s less work, but looking at the scale of modern remakes like Dead Space it’s clear that triple A effort is going into more and more remakes.
I still have a run through on the PS3 each year along with Fallout 3 & NV and the Mass Effect trilogy.
Very enjoyable game and would certainly pick up a pre-owned copy if it was released. Not giving em my money.
I'm surprised they didn't do something with the three games like they did with mass effect legendary edition . It would be useful to play through them on the same console before dreadwolf finally releases
Ooh... i'd like that. Still the only DA worth playing. 2 and 3 were a disappointment.
Even more the fact that Bioware seems to hate the Grey Warden and want him to be dead or just "away". Not even a cameo. Just one letter in 3. Deary me.
Yes please - but with the same combat style from Inquisition! I loved the story in Origins, but hooo boy was the combat awful. I only finished it once whereas I finished 2 and Inquisition at least four times by now
No more remasters...so pointless ... if you are determined to re release a game ...got to give it the full remake treatment
I'd love a remaster of 1&2. Loved them both. As long as they don't so something stupid and make it pure hack n slash. I'd rather think when and where to press a button rather than mash it.
Yes please. A Dragon Age Legendary Edition similar to Mass Effect would be fantastic.
There is a real opportunity cost with making these sort of from-the-ground-up remakes, and frankly i'd prefer that time was spent creating something new.
It was a great game, and modern DA could learn from it. If we weren't so overloaded with remakes and remasters i'd be all for this. But there's just so many nowadays, at the expense of new experiences
please enough with remaster/makes.
between that and live service, gaming is potentially heading in a boring direction.
"Remaster? Alright, that is fine!
But a Remake is just a waste of time!"
OK it didn't quite rhyme, but it'll have to do. C'mon fellow protesters, memorize the motto, gather your signs and let's meet up outside EA HQ pronto!
Remasters are great, but I prefer new IPs, unless it is KOTOR. The more games the better.
I dont mind.a dragon age origins remastered would be cool.word up son
Do a bundle like Mass effect with all games in 1, day 1 buy from me
Yes please. That is my favourite Dragon Age. I'd take a remake if they keep it the same. Would look and feel better than a remaster.
I really enjoyed Inquisition but DA 2 was a big disappointment so Origins is the only one I care about. For that reason I'm going with the remake to get the best out of it until the next game comes along.
Easily one of the best RPGs of its time. Dragons, zombies, vampires, werewolves and blood mages. And whatever that god forsaken thing was in the catacombs. Need I say more?
Such a great game! One of the best RPG's in the history of gaming 😌 great DLC as well.
I'd gnaw off me own legs for a remaster.
I seem to recall not really like Dragon Age Origins when I played it at the time but I also can't remember anything about it. I seem to recall I did quite like Dragon Inquisition when I played it at the time but I can't remember anything about that one either.
Yes, DA:O with remade animations, graphics, and a streamlined UI and class system (I seem to recall that you could waste skill points on perks that didn't suit your build if you didn't know what you were doing) would be ace. It had a great story that I replayed many times to see all the permutations of the story, and interactions with the world and party members based on your choices.
@General_Spiller why would you not give them your money ? Just asking
I agree! Though I also need how to live 48h per day if this ever becomes a reality.
Oh look, another unnecessary remaster they will probably sell for $70
@KingPev Hey. Just because I've been around gaming a long, long time and I'm not inclined to support some of their business practices. They are getting better, so credit there.
Not that most triple AAA companies don't do the same mind you
Having never played the original, this is one I would actually consider if it happened. I remember hearing good things about the game back at launch, but something about it made me put it off until eventually the generation came and went.
Would be nice if it did happen, but I won't hold my breath.
We don't need one just work on the new game.ive these games on steam Xbox and playstation I'm happy with the trilogy as is just bring me the 4th game please... More deep roads visits in the 4th game to please I Wana see them in all the scary ps5 glory.
I'd love a DAO remaster. The only DA that I really liked.
I'd buy this for sure. Make it happen!
Oh lord, enough with the remakes already. How about a new Dragon Age game built specifically for the PS5? I don't blame the developers for cashing in on the used car with new paint, I blame us for keep buying them. There are some worthy of purchase but I'm afraid it's those few diamonds making this a trend. You had an excuse in the middle of the pandemic. Move on, for the love of Baldur's Gate, please move on.
I'd definitely be interested, but only if they remade/remaster Dragon Age 2 as well.
Both games are stuck on old gen consoles. Yes there are PC releases, but I'm not a PC gamer and never will be.
