News: The next great RPG is less than nine months away.
Electronic Arts has pushed out one more Dragon Age II update, this time dealing with the game's release date.
Previously teased with a February 1 release date, EA has confirmed that BioWare's next RPG will be available for the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in March. The new release date may be a month later than expected, but that's still an extremely quick turnaround from part one to part two (with a full-fledged expansion in between).
The company has also revealed a slightly more detailed story outline, that names the game's main character as Hawke:
Dragon Age 2 thrusts players into the role of Hawke, a penniless refugee who rises to power to become the single most important character in the world of Dragon Age. Known to be a survivor of the Blight and the Champion of Kirkwall, the legend around Hawke's rise to power is shrouded in myth and rumor. Featuring an all-new story spanning 10 years, players will help tell that tale by making tough moral choices, gathering the deadliest of allies, amassing fame and fortune, and sealing their place in history. The way you play will write the story of how the world is changed forever.
We'll have more on Dragon Age II soon, but probably not today.
