Ontwikkelaar BioWare heeft vorig jaar hoge ogen gegooid met Dragon Age: Origins. Deze action-RPG was redelijk succesvol en daarom staat er niks in de weg voor een tweede deel. Daarom komen ze volgende maand met Dragon Age II, welke ook ditmaal wordt uitgegeven door Electronic Arts. De game ligt vanaf 11 maart bij ons in de winkels, maar als je niet kan wachten hebben we goed nieuws voor.

EA heeft namelijk vandaag onderstaand persbericht de deur uitgedaan en daarin staat dat voor elk platform een demo komt. De demo van Dragon Age II zal vanaf 22 februari aanstaande in de PlayStation Store staan. Vanaf dan heb je dus nog ruim twee weken de tijd om te beslissen of Dragon Age II iets voor jou is.

GUILDFORD, UK., The entire world stands on the brink of war and you are the one person at the center of it all. On February 22, 2011, BioWare™ will release a demo for Dragon Age™ II, allowing gamers on all platforms to experience a portion of this epic action RPG. Featuring enhanced graphics, faster, more responsive combat and a gripping storyline, the Dragon Age II demo is your chance to find out firsthand why IGN, Game Informer, MTV and The New York Times’ Seth Schiesel have endorsed Dragon Age II as one of the most anticipated games of 2011.
In the demo, players will venture through the game’s prologue, choosing from three different character classes. They’ll also learn more about Hawke and hone their skills and abilities that will make them the ultimate hero. After finishing the prologue, players will enter a key new location in the world of Dragon Age, Kirkwall, befriending Isabela, a romantic interest in the game who is also a deadly smuggler. 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.*

This demo represents just a small taste of what Dragon Age II has to offer. With a whole new realm to discover, and an all-new hero to become, players will go deeper into the world of Dragon Age unlike ever before in an adventure that shapes itself around every decision you make. The time has now come to engage in action-packed, dynamic combat that allows you to think like a general and fight like a Spartan! The legend of your rise to power, begins now!
