Back of the Box
The Chantry teaches that it is the hubris of men that brought the darkspawn into our world. Mages sought to usurp Heaven, but were cast out, twisted by their own corruption, only to return as monsters--the darkspawn. They plague the underground caverns and tunnels once inhabited by the dwarven kingdoms. When they awaken one of the Old Gods, ancient dragons slumbering in the depths of the earth, it rises as an archdemon to lead the darkspawn in a full-scale invasion of the human lands: a Blight. It has been four centuries since the last Blight, but the darkspawn are amassing once again.

I'm guessing you got it for free? So just try it on low and work your way up, you have little ram and your CPU might struggle, but your native resolution is low

I just downloaded this game for free (thank you EA) and was looking at the DLC's. Which of the numerous dlc's and the one big expansion ''Awakening'' are worth getting? I'm only planning on buying a few of the best if they are worth it, or should I just wait for the ultimate edition to go on sale on steam this haloween

It looks good enough in my opinion, I have been playing for the past few hours, if you don't mind slightly outdated visuals, but are more into the actual story and into RPG games, you can look past it, I don't even notice it to be honest.

I would recommend playing before you get spoiled by the visuals Dragon Age Inquisition will most likely bring.
