Mods or "modifications" are exclusive to the PC version of Dragon Age. For those new to modding, these projects are user-made and allow anyone to alter the game for increased enjoyment.
Some mods are down to preference, like the Auto-loot mod (which allows you to grab items in-game without going to the loot screen), while others are full-scale campaigns with voice acting, music and more, like the Baldur's Gate remake. Over the years, fans have created thousands of mods for BioWare's Neverwinter Nights series, and with an even more powerful toolset this time around, Dragon Age is expected to see an even better turn out.
For those with the skills or interest, you can get started here.
