About Dragon Age II

Dragon Age II is the sequel to the computer role playing game Dragon Age: Origins. Set in the same game world as the first title, players will assume the role of Hawke as they adventure through an all new area of the Dragon Age world known as the Free Marches. With a story that spans a decade players will be able to alter and shape the world as they adventure and quest to become a Champion. Dragon Age II also gives players the option to import the world from Dragon Age: Origins save files, so the choices made in the first game can have an impact in Dragon Age II.

Features & Game-play

Much like the original, Dragon Age II will be a non-linear, almost sand-box style storyline that is molded by the choices that the player makes with the main protagonist.
Character Race & Classes - Unlike the original, players will not have the ability to choose their race, they can only play as either a human male or female. There are three classes to choose from and as you would expect each has their own strengths and weaknesses. The three classes are Warrior, Mage and Rogue.
Combat - Combat in Dragon Age II allows players to control their character in real-time in all types of combat, melee, missile/ranged and spell combat. The game does allow you to pause at anytime in order to take control of other non-player characters during combat. In addition to can customize combat tactics for both your character and NPCs in your party.
Weapons, Spells & Abilities - In addition to make of the standard weapons and spells, Dragon Age II also includes a wide array of new weapons, spells, and skills/abilities.
