BioWare and Electronic Arts are really doing all they can to promote the upcoming epic role-playing-game “Dragon Age Origins.”

First the team revealed that the PS3 version of the title will release alongside its Xbox 360 and PC counterparts Nov. 3, and now this.

To celebrate the launch of the long-awaited title, BioWare threw together 10 teams of four players each, from across the globe, and on Oct. 28, the groups will set out on the “Dragon Age: Origins Wardens’ Quest” in hopes of taking home the top prize; $12,500 for each member!

“We’re extremely excited about the Dragon Age: Origins Wardens’ Quest “" it’s going to be an awesome chance for gamers to band together to prove they’re the best at navigating the world of Dragon Age” said Mark Darrah, Executive Producer, Dragon Age: Origins. “In the game, putting together a strong team is essential to success – In the same way the overall strength of the competing teams will decide who walks away with the money.”

The ten teams, hailing the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Netherlands and Belgium, Spain, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, Hungary, Poland and a “specially selected team comprised of the most loyal BioWare fans from around the world,” will duke it in London, England Oct. 28 in a grand hall with what BioWare is calling a “grandiose setting” to play the game.

No mention was made in the press release of just what the quest entails, and subsequently how the teams will be judged, only that “screens will be used to display leader board stats and show highlights” But when information becomes available, BioWare promises it’ll be posted at the official contest page.

Anyone ever pull an all-nighter to play a game?
