Dragon Age 2, coming next year

http://gdc.gamespot.com/story/625342...ing-feb-1-2011

As can been seen in the photo, the flyer shows the series' iconic blood-red dragon. However, instead of being shown from the side with one wing, it is shown head-on, so two wings are visible. In the upper-right hand corner, the date "02.01.2011" is displayed. In North America, that translates to February 1, 2011.
Awesome! I can't wait to sink my teeth into the expansion pack

Re: Dragon Age 2, coming next year

Jeez. I wonder if that means ME3 will come out in less than 18 months then.

Hrm - it might be another Xpack though.

Re: Dragon Age 2, coming next year

I was under the impression ME3 was supposed to come out after a much shorter delay than the 2+ year gap between ME1 and ME2. I didn't expect to see Dragon Age II so soon though.

I won't complain as long as the games are good and don't feel rushed or half-assed to make a quick buck.

Re: Dragon Age 2, coming next year

Anything is possible, though a sequel doesn't seem unlikely. If they started work on it prior to the release of Dragon Age 1 (a pretty common practice it would seem) then 2011 seems like a pretty reasonable release year. I would assume that whatever it is they plan on releasing on February 1st is going to be delayed though, as is the norm with a big name game

Awesome.

I'd rather have ME3, though.

Re: Dragon Age 2, coming next year

I find myself split on this, as I really really liked both games. I think I'll be fine with either one coming out first

Re: Dragon Age 2, coming next year

I enjoyed the gameplay/combat of ME2 more but the RPG elements (story/companions/choices) of Dragon Age a lot more.

I went into Dragon Age planning to play a selfish Mage through the game but found the narrative gave me the opportunity to go much deeper and tell a really cool redemption story. Very satisfying stuff. And I loved that I'd be presented with choices that weren't Good or Bad but more like I was deciding between the lesser of two evils.

Either way, Bioware has totally cemented themselves as a company whose games I'll just give a shot, no questions asked.

Bioware is my favorite gaming company.

I need to pick up Dragon Age at some point.

Re: Dragon Age 2, coming next year

I adored Dragon Age, so yeah, put me down as interested. I wonder if my actions in the game will carry over or not into the sequel, and in what ways.

I hope so.

I've got the add-on pack for the first one on pre-order, though it'll feel a little odd using one of my characters on either that or a sequel. I will be pre-ordering DA2 and as soon as ME3 comes up, that's going on the list too.

Yeah, true, DA easily beats out ME2 in both depth of story and character. What I'd like to see in ME3 is more of a blending between ME2's combat (though I really hate the ammo system and the nerfed biotics), DAO's character development (and interaction between party members!), and ME1's epic storyline.

Re: Dragon Age 2, coming next year

Since this is the new thread, a couple of weeks ago someone posted a David Gaider/aimo collaboration on the BioWare blog:
http://blog.bioware.com/2010/03/01/d...elation-comic/

It's a scene that was cut near the end of the game.

Re: Dragon Age 2, coming next year

Game Informer cover confirms that DA2 is coming next year.

That's a frighteningly short turn-around time and I'm surprised they didn't announce anything at E3 considering it's coming in March.

Re: Dragon Age 2, coming next year

Well.. assuming they'll use the same graphical engine the development time will be cut short immensely as you don't need to program it from scratch anymore.. just a few tweaks here and there (please update the blood splatter on the characters as it always looks like someone took a full paintbrush and just splattered red paint all over).

What remains is level design and story and that can be done within a year or two.

So.. immensely enjoyed DA1 and really looking forward to the 2nd.

After the story disappointment that was ME2 (ME1 rocked the story but ME2 was just too short because the main storyline was over in a few missions and was padded out by the search for a new team) i'm very much looking forward to DA2 and hoping they expand the scope and include other kindgoms like Orlais.

Huzzah!

Guess I'd better get started on buying that spiffy new PC I've been meaning to buy so I can play DA2 (and replay DAO) the way it's meant to be.
