Bioware’s already let us know that they’ll be going in a slightly different, more human-centric direction with Dragon Age 2. Now we know when we’re going to be able to play it, as well as getting a glimpse at Hawke’s powers in this new trailer.
The trailer’s nice and all, but it remains to be seen what the game plays like. Judging on the scenes in the clip and comments from the press release below, there might be more of a focus on up-close combat and spell-casting.
From the press release:
With Dragon Age 2, we are building on the outstanding RPG fundamentals the original delivered while taking the franchise in a new direction with faster, more responsive combat that will allow players to think like a general, but fight like a Spartan,” said Mark Darrah, executive producer at BioWare. “We are giving the franchise’s gameplay a shot of adrenaline. We can’t wait to get the game in people’s hands so they can feel the difference.”
It really does sound like a medieval Mass Effect, doesn’t it? Not that that’s a bad thing…
