No Reused Levels: Details Of Dragon Age 3 Emerge

By John Walker on April 11th, 2012.

So they SAY.

Rumours are flying that Dragon Age 3 might be something more like the sequel to Dragon Age we’ve been hoping for. After Dragon Age 2 came out feeling more like a side-project, BioWare have dropped some hefty hints that they’re looking to redress much of that in an unannounced third game for the series. At a PAX East panel, as spotted by Eurogamer and recorded by Gamespot, Dragon Age developers discussed what a hypothetical game might contain, were it to exist, which it currently doesn’t, but obviously does. It’s to be a far more varied game, with new locales, and decisions that carry over from previous games.

Dragon Age 2: Legacy DLC Footage

By Jim Rossignol on July 8th, 2011.

This dude just wants to be friends, I reckon.
Ooh, EA have announced that Dragon Age 2′s first big bit of story-driven DLC is nearing. Legacy, which features Hawke going into a Grey Warden prison to deal with a particularly unpleasant darkspawn nasty, is going to arrive on 26th of July. Needless to say, magicks which imprisoned the unpleasantness have worn out, because magic sort of “goes off” if you leave it in a dark dungeon for too long, and Hawke will have to deal with the consequences. Will it be any good? How much will it cost? I don’t know, but one of our sinister agents has seen Legacy and talked to the team behind it, so we’ll have more on that stuff soon.

In the meantime, you can watch the trailer, beloooooooow.

But! Dragon Age May Be Back On Track

By Alec Meer on June 14th, 2011.

Run, Hawke! Run from all the thousands of men who hate you!

EA may not have given Battlefield fans the answer they wanted to hear, but meanwhile, back in the kingdom of Ferelden, things might be looking a little rosier. Eurogamer had a chat with EA bigwig Frank Gibeau about the reception to Dragon Age 2. He was careful not to actually slag off the game or its makers, but he did imply that the negative feedback has very much been taken on board.

The Dragon Age 2 Demo Is Out Today

By Jim Rossignol on February 22nd, 2011.


Still nothing unlocked on the Dragon Age 2 demo page, but the demo is apparently out later today. We’ll keep this post updated, so please put links in comments once it’s live so we can get some mirrors and stuff. That said, I don’t know whether the mirrors will count towards Bioware’s one million downloads challenge, in which they’ve offered to unlock some in-game items if that figure is reached. Perhaps that’s just downloads from the official page? Hmm.

Anyway, keep eyes peeled for incoming, people!

Dragon Age’s Hawke Is Three Champions

By Jim Rossignol on February 8th, 2011.

At RPS we get choose between being Blogger, Snogger, or Dogger.
So, after having too many options for creating a character in Dragon Age: Origins, we are now down to just three options for the Hawke character chap in Dragon Age 2, II, Two. He can be a mage! (DUDES GET MAGICKED TO DEATH!) He can be a rogue! (DUDES GET STABBED TO DEATH!) He can be a warrior! (DUDES GET UH MORE STABBED I GUESS!) You decide.

Watch it, below.

Dragon Age 2 DRM Is Different

By Jim Rossignol on February 1st, 2011.


This forum post on the Bioware forums has detailed how the Dragon Age 2 DRM will work. The Steam version will use Steam, and nothing else. For the retail version there is no limit to install, no disc check, and are online checks, which mean that only five PCs can be used to play a single version of the game within a 24-hour period. While this game can also be played offline, you will need to “check in” after a number of days to keep playing.

The way things are going will mean that the retail version will end up being cheaper, but the digital version will be more convenient…

Dragon Space 2 Armour in Dead Age 2

By John Walker on January 21st, 2011.

I can't wait to get Darkspore add-ons from Populous.

When it was announced that there would be Dragon Age armour in Mass Effect 2, it may have gone crashing through the fourth wall like a confused rhinoceros, but at least the two games came from the same developer. It’s bemusing to try to fathom how the two universes might cross over, but we got over it. But for Dragon Age 2 you’ll be able to unlock unique armour if you also have, er, Dead Space 2. Buh-huh?

There’s a trailer explaining all this below.

Pre-Order Dragon Age 2, Get Pretend Objects

By Quintin Smith on January 13th, 2011.

Bioware has revealed the plethora, the deluge of imaginary items they will be gifting to first-hand buyers of Dragon Age 2 and the game’s pre-order customers. Are you sitting down? Are you reading this on an empty stomach? Because if not you may fall down and vomit simultaneously.

Dragon Age 2 Wants You Back

By Alec Meer on December 17th, 2010.

There’s been a tangy whiff of “hmm” around Dragon Age 2 amongst the PC faithful, with the game apparently headed in something of a press all the buttons kill all the monsters press them kill them press them kill them direction we perhaps hadn’t expected from our beloved tactics’n'conversation opus. Turns out that perhaps we’ve got the wrong impression, though.

Now, while this video makes the bewildering mistake of primarily consisting of a chattering man filmed in near-darkness, it also very deliberately seeks to demonstrate that pause’n'play tactical combat remains present and correct in the PC version of the game. Read the rest of this entry »

Fantasy Star: Dragon Age 2 Wobblecam

By Quintin Smith on November 8th, 2010.

Thanks to some tricksy Russians operating out of the Igromir Game Expo,there’s now in-game footage of Dragon Age 2 doing the rounds. You can watch it below. It’s the same level I played at the GamesCom expo that made me very nervous indeed, and is (I think) the opening of the game. Click on through for a little bit of dialogue, a little bit of cutscenery and a whole lot of combat.

Dragon Age 2 Rising To Power

By John Walker on October 27th, 2010.

KERRRRRRRRRRRRRR-CHOP!

How are we all feeling about Dragon Age 2? Quintin wasn’t too impressed when he played it at this year’s GamesCom, but me – with no experience of the game – I’m determinedly optimistic. I mean, it’s not like BioWare messes up very often. However, if picking my ideal Dragon Age sequel, I wouldn’t have it be more action orientated. Quite the opposite. They spent a decade developing that world’s lore, and exploring it, interacting with it, learning from it: that’s my motivation. Hitting it doesn’t quite grab me in the same way. Still, it’s not out for another six months, and I’ve not even seen it running, so I’m just wildly guessing. To become more informed on the matter there’s a new trailer below, that shows some glimpses of in-game footage.

The EA GamesCom 2010 press conference has been wrapped up – and there was no Battlefield 3 showing – but there is some interesting material in there. I’ve quickly jotted the relevant stuff below.
