Default Dragon Age Series

Bioware had launched the Dragon Age 2 website!

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.
Other things confirmed:

* You play as a human named Hawke (can be male or female)
* The game will take place over a 10 year period
* They are aiming for a March 2011 release

Not much to go on right now, but thoughts? I know a ton of people are already giving cries of protest over not being able to play an elf.

Also, this is basically Mass Effect doing the fusion Dance with Dragon Age, consider me cautiously optimistic. It's nice the character is going to have a voice now though.

So beautiful.

But I want to see Alistar and Morrigan, but the whole "10 years later" makes it suspiciously sound like they're just going to write them out completely or they are going to get the Ashley/Kaidan treatment- one line and an email. Which will make me RAGE.

At least Morrigan and her hell spawn should get a mention.

Actually, the game takes place over ten years, not after. I don't think there's been any word about the time frame between the first and the new one mentioned yet.

I'm kinda hoping the main character is the son of the original warden and Morrigan.

Also, I know it sounds a little like blasphemy, and while I loved, and I mean loved the combat system in the first game, but I wouldn't mind them mixing real time action controls into the game, while leaving the original combat system in tact if you want to use it. A combination of both would make me jizz

Same. Also, I like the idea of a voice actor for the character, but I did like all the options they gave your character in the first game. I guess we'll see how that all balances out.

Ack, maybe I should clarify -- I don't know how long it'll be between DA and DA2, but DA2 itself is going to cover a decade.

Bring on Morrigan. I...never really liked Alistair. I wish there was a bomb I could have left him with. :C

They confirmed on the boards that the main character isn't Morrigan's child. :\ I was kinda hoping for that (especially since the chick has some weird demon arm).

Tbh I never liked morrigan, but I fucking LOVE Claudia Black and her voice acting is fan fucking tastic. Which instantly wins her one over boo hoo Alistair.

I played as a mage so she and my character were pretty chill. She never annoyed me, at least.

But Alistair. OH GOD. I don't even have any words, he just won't ever shut up


EVER

What pisses me off is he's always poking fun at my character, but the minute I do it to him, HURP DURP Alistair disapproves.

One of the reasons why I couldn't bring Morrigan along with me is because for EVERYTHING I DID SHE GOT PISSED. Side missions, not being an asshole, not committing mass murder- negative ten points.

I hate lip from my side characters. I am extremely petty and once when I sided with Miranda isntead of Jack, and Jack screamed "FUCK U" at me I got annoyed and now kill her off almost every time I play the ending.

Jack is a terrible character. At least I managed to get Morrigan on my side AND still be a morally ambiguous hero, without making her my baby daddy.
