Bioware today revealed the basic plot summary for Dragon Age 2, which is set to be released in March 2011. The game will feature a new character named Hawke, So I wonder if you will still be able to name you character even though he has a set name. The GameInformer cover shows Hawke (assuming it’s even him) as being a warrior; however I am sure you can change his class. Hawke is a survivor of the blight from the first game who will find himself in a completely new adventure in Dragon Age 2. Dragon Age 2 will be available once again for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC. The adventure is said to last a full decade (in game time), which sounds like it will be a lengthy adventure. Bioware mentioned in their press release that “the way you play will write the story of how the world is changed forever.”
Below are some of the first artwork releases of the game, along with the new August Game Informer cover which has a full feature on the game. Also look out for a full reveal on the game at Gamescom next month.
“With Dragon Age 2 we are creating an exciting new entry point into the Dragon Age universe while ensuring that fans of the original game retain a sense of satisfaction and familiarity in the world,” said Dragon Age 2 Executive Producer Mark Darrah. “We are amplifying the things that made Dragon Age: Origins such a huge success while introducing a more dynamic combat system, improving the graphics, and telling the most important story in our world.”
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.
