Do I need an internet connection to play Dragon Age: Origins (PC)?

If I do, how does it work? Do you basically need a connected computer to play the game at all, or do you just need to connect once when you install the game?

    I would not expect it, but I know some games, like Skyrim, try to connect even though they are single player. Aug 24, 2014 at 17:15

You need to connect once to EA with your EA/Origin login information to activate your DLC. After that, no internet is needed. This is also required if you have the game on Steam.

    Thanks. Do you know if the game tries to "phone home" passively when it is running? Aug 24, 2014 at 17:18

    @TylerDurden Yes, it tries to upload your characters to your Bioware Profile.
