Dragon Age 2 gets official release date and trailer
Originally expected to launch in February, BioWare has now announced that Dragon Age 2, the sequel to 2009's "RPG of the Year", will now officially be available on March 8, 2011 in North America and March 11, 2011 in Europe.
Dragon Age 2 will feature faster-paced action, striking new art direction and an updated method of storytelling that will allow gamers to experience the rise to power of one of the most important characters in the Dragon Age universe. Players will take on the role of Hawke, a refugee who survives the destruction of his (or her) homeland and becomes the Champion of Kirkwall. Hawke's rise to power is a story that will span 10 years of the Dragon Age universe's timeline. Players will be able to uniquely shape and experience how this legend unfolds by gathering the deadliest of allies, making tough moral choices, amassing fame and fortune and sealing their place in history.
“The Dragon Age franchise got off to a tremendous start. With Dragon Age 2, we are building on the outstanding RPG fundamentals the original delivered while taking the franchise in a new direction with faster, more responsive combat that will allow players to think like a general, but fight like a Spartan,” said Mark Darrah, executive producer at BioWare. “We are giving the franchise’s gameplay a shot of adrenaline. We can’t wait to get the game in people’s hands so they can feel the difference."
