Dragon Age II coming March 8, new trailer released

By on
BioWare has provided a solid release date for its upcoming sequel to 2009's gritty fantasy RPG, Dragon Age: Origins. PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Dragon Age II will land in US stores on March 8, 2011. Europeans will have to wait another three days for a March 11 launch. Of course, if you have $50 burning a hole in your pocket, you can preorder the game online -- for PC anyway, it's $60 on consoles.

The story is set sometime after the Blight of Fereldan and unfolds over the course of a decade in a "non-linear framed narrative" as you resave the world from the Darkspawn and other threats. New features include a fresh art style and a reactive combat system that should make for faster-paced action. BioWare released a trailer today, and while it's pretty cool, we're bummed it doesn't show in-game footage.
