Dragon Age 2 is arriving next month, and I’m feeling incredibly impatient about it. So much so in fact, that I’ve already gone through the ritual of alerting my social contacts, friends to you normal people, that I’ll be thoroughly ignorant from the 8th of March onward (more than usual anyway) and started a replay of the first game, just in case it’s changed since the other 5 times.
To give myself a little taster though, and to appease my Hurlock slaying appetite for a little longer, I’ve also made a point of remembering that a Dragon Age 2 demo will be available on the 22nd of February, and while that’s almost pointless considering that I’ve already ordered the Signature Edition, Bioware have conjured up yet another incentive to check out their offering.
Upon completion of the demo, players will unlock a special weapon, Hayder’s Razor, an ancient dwarven blade which increases health, mana, and combat abilities, in the full release of Dragon Age 2.
Not only that, but if Bioware see over 1 million downloads of their demo before March the 1st, across all platforms, they will unlock further exclusive content for the Dragon Age Community, in the form of two handy little in-game books:
The Far Cliffs of Kirkwall -
Written by a Ferelden refugee as she fled the Blight, this book of poems describes her dreams of a new start in Kirkwall, the city across the sea. Readers will surely be enriched by her insights. (Gives money when read.)
Lothering’s Lament -
Written by a Ferelden refugee as she fled the Blight, this book of poems contains touching reminiscences of all she had to leave behind. Readers will surely benefit from her experience. (Gives XP boost when read.)
Well, they can count me in! What about you? Ah, but don’t forget that you must be logged into the EA server for your contribution to be recognised!
