The Fantasy Art of Dragon Age: Origins and the Awakening Expansion - Creature - Ogre

Back to the main page for The Fantasy Art of Dragon Age: Origins

Dragon Age: Origins is a beautifully rendered fantasy role-playing game with medieval European visualization for the game art direction. Combat is bloody and gruesome, filled with spraying blood and decapitation, but also stylized with special finishing blow animations. The game has various Downloadable Content adventures, items, and small expansions; and one major expansion/sequel, "Awakening".

This page of fantasy game art from Dragon Age: Origins features Ogres. These are darkspawn born from BroodMothers that were once female qunari. Their huge size and ability to hurl boulders make them siege weapons and shock troops for darkspawn hordes. In Dragon Age: Origins, Ogres and Ogre Alphas use the same model. In the Awakening expansion, Armored Ogres are introduced but only seen in a few encounters.

From Codex entry: Ogre:

Towering over their darkspawn kin, the massive ogres are a rare sight on the battlefield. Traditionally, they only appear during a Blight ... Up to a hundred of these creatures can accompany a darkspawn horde at any one time during a Blight, often using their great strength to burst through fortifications and demolish the front lines of the opposing army. ...

...Grey Warden lore urges caution when slaying an ogre. Unless it is ensured that they have received a major wound to the head or the heart, it is possible that they are lying dormant and will regenerate to full health within a matter of minutes. During a Blight, most Grey Wardens recommend burning all darkspawn to ashes... "dead" ogres in particular.
