BioWare’s lifted the veil on Mark of the Assassin, a brand-new chunk of downloadable content for Dragon Age II.

Due out on October 11 for PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360, Mark of the Assassin focuses on the exploits of Tallis and Hawke, as the pair attempts to pinch a jewel known as The Heart of the Many from an Orlesian Baron.

Tallis features the voice and likeness of actress Felicia Day, who Dragon Age fans may recognise as the co-creator of series web comic, Redemption, as well as the MMO-centric comedy web series The Guild.

"Mark of the Assassin features new items, new enemies and monsters and new environments as well as giving players the opportunity to experience a new, tactical way to play with the return of Stealth gameplay. Plus, along with the new environments and monsters, you will learn more about the Orlesians and Qunari,” commented BioWare’s Christ Priestly. 

Mark of the Assassin can be played at any point in the main quest after you have reached Kirkwall and your house, and features a number of familiar faces including party members.
