Dragon Age II Announced for March 2011


This comes a lit­tle late as it was announced on the 9th but bet­ter late then nev­er.  The much antic­i­pat­ed sequel to Drag­on Age: Ori­gins has been announced and it promis­es to be big­ger and bad­der then the orig­i­nal.  The orig­i­nal com­bined an epic sto­ry with amaz­ing visu­als and com­bat to cre­ate one of the best RPG’s seen in years.  I’ve put in over 60 hours in the orginal game and plan on return­ing for a sec­ond pass through as there are so many paths that you can take and you can’t get them all in one play through.  You can also play many of the ori­gins sto­ries which great­ly affect how the game world per­ceives you.  Drag­on Age II will defi­nate­ly be on my wish list this spring and we will post the first pre­view trail­er when it arrives! 
Drag­on Age 2 thrusts play­ers into the role of Hawke, a pen­ni­less refugee who ris­es to pow­er to become the sin­gle most impor­tant char­ac­ter in the world of Drag­on Age. Known to be a sur­vivor of the Blight and the Cham­pi­on of Kirk­wall, the leg­end around Hawke’s rise to pow­er is shroud­ed in myth and rumor. Fea­tur­ing an all-new sto­ry span­ning 10 years, play­ers will help tell that tale by mak­ing tough moral choic­es, gath­er­ing the dead­liest of allies, amass­ing fame and for­tune, and seal­ing their place in his­to­ry. The way you play will write the sto­ry of how the world is changed for­ev­er.
Key Fea­tures:

  • Embark upon an all-new adven­ture that takes place across an entire decade and shapes itself around every deci­sion you make.
  • Deter­mine your rise to pow­er from a des­ti­tute refugee to the revered cham­pi­on of the land.
  • Think like a gen­er­al and fight like a Spar­tan with dynam­ic new com­bat mechan­ics that put you right in the heart of bat­tle whether you are a mage, rogue, or war­rior.
  • Go deep­er into the world of Drag­on Age with an entire­ly new cin­e­mat­ic expe­ri­ence that grabs hold of you from the begin­ning and nev­er lets go.
  • Dis­cov­er a whole realm ren­dered in stun­ning detail with updat­ed graph­ics and a new visu­al style.

The debut trail­er for the game is com­ing August 17, so stay tuned!
Drag­on Age II will be on the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 in March 2011.

    I’m not sure if I’m look­ing more for­ward to The Witch­er II or Draong Age II and if these games come out at the same time I don’t know how I’m going to slit my time between the two games. I might find myself divorced after i dump 300 hours into them com­bined.

    Bioware has cer­tain­ly been pump­ing out some all-around epic games recent­ly.

    You can buy it on steam for dirt cheap. It’s hands down one of the best RPG in years and Ger­alt of Riv­ia is one of the most badass VG char­ac­ters in his­to­ry in my opin­ion.

    “Dirt Cheap” is always a good qual­i­fi­er when it comes to me buy­ing games. I’ll def­i­nite­ly check it out then. Thanks!

    I’ve bought the game 3 times… sad­ly enough… first was the orig­i­nal release. Great game but sor­ta bug­gy. Sec­ond release was the Enhanced Edi­tion of the game which was far supe­ri­or to the orig­i­nal release. Final­ly was the Direc­tors Cut edi­tion on steam which was 6.95. This means I’ve spent close to 100 dol­lars on this game in total. At least now I won’t loose it like I did the first time.
