Dragon Age II is now available at retail stores in North America and will be available in Europe on March 11. Featuring a gripping new storyline and stunning visuals (full review coming in the weeks ahead), Dragon Age II allows gamers to experience the rise to power of Hawke, a refugee who survives the destruction of his homeland, to become the Champion of Kirkwall. Also available today is “The Exiled Prince,” the first downloadable content pack for Dragon Age II.
In the main Dragon Age II storyline, Hawke’s rise to power is shrouded in myth and rumor, with these mysteries being the driving force behind a story that spans an entire decade. Players will experience how the legend unfolds by gathering the deadliest of allies, making tough moral choices, and amassing fame and fortune as they seal their place in history and change the face of the Dragon Age universe forever.
The Exiled Prince DLC introduces the noble archer, Sebastian Vael, with players joining him in the middle of his quest to avenge the horrific murder of his family. Sworn to the priesthood as a boy, Sebastian is forced to re-enter the viper’s nest of princely politics when his family is brutally murdered, leaving him as the sole-surviving heir. Banding together with Sebastian and his unshakable loyalty and excellent aim, players will choose to either avenge Sebastian’s murdered family to reclaim his title or direct his holy vengeance on their own enemies in Kirkwall. In addition to this action-packed storyline, players will also be able to enlist Sebastian as a follower throughout a majority of Dragon Age II. The Exiled Prince DLC is be available for $6.99, or 560 Microsoft Points.
Dragon Age II is available for PS3, Xbox 360, the PC and Mac. If you’d like to get your copy to start playing this weekend, here are the Amazon links:
