One of my favorite games from last year will have its sequel be available on March 8, 2011. That's the day Dragon Age 2 is slated to be released. BioWare's moving into a little bit of a different direction with the second game emphasizing a faster-paced action as well as a new art direction.

For Dragon Age 2, you play Hawke, Champion of Kirkwall. You'll experience all that goes about Hawke and his rise to power. The game will take place in a span of 10 years so you're going to be spending a lot of time with Hawke and his companions. I am a little disappointed you won't be importing your character from the first game, but it should be a fun ride once the game arrives.
