February 22nd is the date nerds. That’s the date Bioware will be releasing the Dragon Age 2 demo for mass consumption. Like most sequels, Dragon Age 2 plans to amp everything up, from smoother battles, to better graphics and an awesome new story line. Dragon Age 2 is out March 8th, for the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360.
In the demo, players will venture through the game’s prologue, choosing from three different character classes. They’ll also learn more about Hawke and hone their skills and abilities that will make them the ultimate hero. After finishing the prologue, players will enter a key new location in the world of Dragon Age, Kirkwall, befriending Isabela, a romantic interest in the game who is also a deadly smuggler. 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 II.
