Dragon Age 2 Gets Release Date, New Trailer

Waiting for the next Dragon Age chapter? Now you'll know exactly how long you'll have to wait.

BioWare announced today that Dragon Age 2 will be available on March 8, 2011 in North America and March 11 in Europe.

“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.”

Dragon Age 2 thrusts players into the role of Hawke, a refugee who survives the destruction of his homeland and becomes the Champion of Kirkwall. The lore around Hawke’s rise to power is shrouded in myth and rumor and is the driving force behind this all-new story spanning 10 years in the Dragon Age universe timeline. Players will uniquely 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.

Check out the new trailer released below:

    So totally awesome news... As a Diablo fan, there is not much else on a horizon to look forward to in terms of RPG's. Dragon Age 1 was great, lets home number two will be better :-)

    Try getting torchlight on steam - relativly cheap, and feels very much like diablo 1 in a new dress.

    Thanks for suggestion neiroatopelcc. I had tons of fun with Torchlight, Oblivion, Fallout and Dragon Age. Great games. However what I feel is missing in these titles is re playability like its found in Diablo Series and how levels are randomly generated, giving the new look and feel everytime you set yourself on a quest to find a rare magical items pushing your character level further and further,like in Diablo 2 Lvl 99.

    Wow, that brings joyous feelings of endless hours of game play and sheer satisfaction. Great Times! Long Live RPG's!

    Hopefully they'll be intelligent enough to include some sort of multiplayer or co-op mode this time around.

    The splattering sound effects after summoning the arms made me laugh.

But to be honest, very few games have replayability that matches that of diablo 2. Heroes of might and magic, enclave and flatout are up there for me, but I think many people have other unique favorites.
