[UPDATE] Dragon Age 2 is a reality


Fresh details have emerged via developer BioWare, who confirmed that the game’s story will last a decade in game time, with the title itself due out in March 2011 for PS3, 360 and PC. As expected, the first trailer will debut at GamesCom, during publisher Electronic Arts’ press conference. See below for the full scoop via the game’s official website:

"Experience the epic sequel to the 2009 Game of the Year from the critically acclaimed makers of Dragon Age: Origins and Mass Effect 2. You are one of the few who escaped the destruction of your home. Now, forced to fight for survival in an ever-changing world, you must gather the deadliest of allies, amass fame and fortune, and seal your place in history. This is the story of how the world changed forever. The legend of your Rise to Power begins now."

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.

  • Discover a whole realm rendered in stunning detail with updated graphics and a new visual style.


Electronic Arts has let slip that BioWare is currently hard at work developing a sequel to Dragon Age: Origins.

The company let the cat out of the bag in a press release for Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning, as it recently nabbed the European publishing rights for the upcoming MMO.

The document reads: ‘Currently announced projects at BioWare include the development of ongoing downloadable content for Mass Effect 2, one of the highest rated video games of all time, Dragon Age 2, the highly anticipated sequel to 2009’s "RPG of the Year" Dragon Age: Origins, and the story-driven massively multiplayer online game, Star Wars: The Old Republic.’

Unsurprisingly that’s all we have to go on at present, though we’ll hopefully get a formal reveal at EA’s GamesCom press conference on August 17. Stay tuned.
