BioWare and Electronic Arts have announced Dragon Age II, the sequel to Dragon Age: Origins. Dragon Age II is scheduled to release in March 2011 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
The game will take place in a new area of the world, although the exact location has not yet been revealed. It stars Hawke, a human hero who rises from poverty to become one of the most powerful people in the Dragon Age world over the course of the game, which spans ten years. Although there will still be multiple races in the game, Hawke will be either a male or female human.
Beyond this basic information and two pieces of concept art, Bioware has said little about Dragon Age II. We'll be able to learn more on July 17, when the first trailer for the game will be released.
