xx The Dragon Age 2 thread
« Thread started on: Sep 5th, 2010, 3:04pm »

Well since I started one for Mass Effect 2, I thought I would start one for Dragon Age 2 and the DLC that will come out for Dragon Age: Origins

First off coming Sept. 7, 2010 (the same day as Mass Effect 2: Lair of the Shadow Broker) is Witch Hunt the newest and the last DLC for Dragon Age: Origins and the return of every one's favorite witch Morrigan! It'll cost 560 MS Points on XBL and $7 on the PSN.


Next up is: Dragon Age: The Animated Movie is an anime movie to be released by FUNimation (the same company that released Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles and Dragonball Z).


Also out is the first 3 issues of Dragon Age the comic book series from IDW and EA Comics and the fourth issue is supposed to be out tomorrow (9/8/12).


And up is Dragon Age 2 coming March 11, 2011. Click on the link to see the trailer.

This time around however you will play as Hawke a human (you can pick Hawke's gender) refugee that escaped Lothering before it was destroyed by the darkspawn in the first game, and is now living in the city-state of Kirkwell in the Free Marches.
The story will follow Hawke's rise from penny-less refugee to Champion of Kirkwell over the course of a decade. Hawke will be fully voiced. Flementh is set to return, there will be no duel wielding weapons for warriors, that will be for the rouges only this time.
Images of a model can be dressed I guessed as the female Hawke can be seen the pic for the Inside Xbox episode from PAX '10. She looks hot IMHO.

Dragon Age II: The Signature Edition is up for pre-order! If pre-order it before 1-11-11 (BTW that is the release date according to gamestop.com for the PS3 version of Mass Effect 2!) you get an exclusive in-game digital armory of 4 special weapons (a staff, a sword, a bow, and a shield), downloadable game soundtrack, and a bouns character and missions.

This is for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.

There is also a new short video up on the Dragonage 2 website featuring some of the characters/voice actors. It will be interesting to see how they introduce the new game.

New pre-order area The Black Emporium where you get the following items if you pre-order before March 8th, 2011:

The Lion of Orlais Shield and The Fadeshear sword.

Original purchase of Dragon Age 2 who get the following:
A fighting Mabari Hound
The Mirror of Transformation
Access to exclusive magic and crafting stones.

Also pre-orders will get for free (I think) a new character DLC The Exiled Prince and if you buy Dead Space 2 you get a code for the armor of Ser Issac of Clarke for Dragon Age 2.

As far as I know it's for both the regular and signature edition. Except for Ser Issac of Clarke's armor that you have to buy a copy of Dead Space 2 to get the code for that.

From Chris Priestly a Bioware public relations rep.

Quote:
Upon completion of the demo, players will unlock a special weapon, Hayder’s Razor, an ancient dwarven blade which increases health, mana, and combat abilities, in the full release of Dragon Age II.

Anders, the smart ass mage from Dragon Age: Origins-Awakening is back and it seems he's bringing another a friend (or maybe foe now) along for the ride and it's not his cat Ser Pounce-Alot.

And apprently he's not the only returning character from DA:O Isabela the female pirate. Well according to David Gaider, the Head Writer on Dragon Age II on the Bioware's message boards, she was in Dragon Age: Origins she is the one who teaches you the Grey Warden how to be a duelist when you meet her in the Pearl. She will have a new voice (she was voiced in DA:O by the same woman who did the Queen) as well having a new look. Also said to be returning from Dragon Age: Origins is Merril the Dalish Elf mage who accompies Dalish Elf Warden to destroy the mirror in the Dalish Elf origin story is said to return as well.
And BTW Isbella, Merril, Fernis, and Anders are going to be Hawke's love interests in Dragon Age 2 has well.

Bioware has issued a call to arms to their fans! Which is basically if they can get 1 million demos for Dragon Age 2 downloaded (combined across all platforms Xbox 360, PS3, and PC) then they will unlock 2 special in-game items if the goal is reached by March 1st.

Even bigger news is that Felica Day (of The Guild and Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog fame) will star in Dragon Age: Redemption a live action web series! and she plays an elven assassin as well! Now that I want to see!

Demo downloaded and played!......And honestly im a bit underwhelmed, thought the voice acting was a bit lack lustre with the odd exception and the game lacked Origins sence or grandure and atmosphere.....HOWEVER im holding my judgement until I've got the full game.

Things that I liked: the voice acting Lady Hawke was great while Ser Hawke sounded like a poor man's Tim Dalton.

The mage class finally seemed to be cool and I could work with them without getting KO all of the time.

Bethany (Hawke's little sister) was cool.

The darkspawn's new walk I don't know why it looks twisted and funny at the same time.

Things that I didn't like:

The darkspawn's new look (especially the Hurlocks) they don't look scary they look a bad cartoon versions of the ones from DA:O.

Carver (Hawke's little brother). I don't like him.

Flemeth's redesign (her hair in particular) looks weird and out of place. Although her armor looks cool.
