BioWare Confirms Dragon Age 2 And "New Mechanics"
An insert in the last expansion pack for Dragon Age: Origins essentially confirmed it, but here's the official announcement.
BioWare has confirmed Dragon Age 2, which will be a direct sequel to last year's stellar RPG. DA2 is now slated to drop in March 2011 - which actually marks a slight delay, as the insert in Awakening told us it would be ready for February - and it'll be available for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. The game will take place over a 10-year period, as you will transform Blight-survivor Hawke "from a destitute refugee to the revered champion of the land." But perhaps more importantly is the news that new combat mechanics are coming our way for each of the three classes, and we can expect "an entirely new cinematic experience." All we'd really want is a set of upgraded visuals, a slightly less demanding difficulty curve, and a game that's equally impressive across all platforms. But regardless of what we get, we'll remain excited between now and March.
Origins is the game that received our 2009 award for Role-Playing Game of the Year (sorry, Demon's Souls fans) so naturally, we're all sorts of pumped for the sequel.
