The Guild web series writer and actress Felicia Day will be participating in another video game centric web series called Dragon Age: Redemption
. As you probably guessed, Felicia Day will be acting in a web series based on the Dragon Age universe set during the time of BioWare’s Dragon Age II
Ms. Day will play as an Elven assassin, Tallis, who is on a quest mandated to her by the Qunari to track down a rogue mage who has plans to bring destruction to the world. Tallis will have companions join her along the way and, much like in the Dragon Age series, these companions will be of all shapes, sizes, beliefs and goals brought together by their mutual desire to defeat the rogue mage.
The premiere of Dragon Age: Redemption will be on February 16th on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on NBC. There will also be an on-set look on February 24th on Gametrailers TV with Geoff Keighley on Spike TV.
What do you get when you combine one of the richest RPGs with the creator of one of the most watched web series of all time? Dragon Age™: Redemption. This all-new six-part web series is based in the Dragon Age universe and created by Felicia Day, the force behind the blockbuster web series “The Guild.” Scheduled to premiere this summer, Dragon Age: Redemption is set in the same time period as BioWare’s Dragon Age II.
Look for the world premiere of Dragon Age: Redemption this Wednesday, February 16, presented by Felicia Day on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” on NBC (check your local listings), and get your first on-set look at Dragon Age: Redemption on “Gametrailers TV with Geoff Keighley” on Spike TV, Thursday, February 24 (check your local listings).
“I’m a huge Dragon Age fan, and I have been looking for a follow up project to ‘The Guild’ for quite some time,” said Day. “I was thrilled when the opportunity to work with BioWare materialized. Dragon Age: Redemption allows me to tell a fantasy story in a new way, using a universe I really love. It has been a dream working together.”
In Dragon Age: Redemption, Day stars as Tallis, an Elven assassin hired by the Qunari to capture a rogue mage intent on wreaking havoc throughout the world. In her quest to find this dangerous mage, Tallis is joined by other companions who are not always aligned in their beliefs and goals, but who band together to defeat their foe, in an attempt to restore peace and balance to this dark fantasy universe.
Day’s original web series, “The Guild,” which follows the story of a group of players in a fictitious MMORPG, was an instant internet phenomenon, attracting more than 100 million viewers in three years. Day is also known as the main love interest, Penny, in Joss Whedon’s Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, and for her recurring role as Vi on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
