Updated / Dragon Age II official, trailer next month, art now

Update: Dated for ‘March 2011′

Original story: Dragon Age II is official.

The news arrives via GameInformer’s latest cover reveal which presumably pictures the new hero (above) the sequel’s said to follow.

Beyond it focusing on a different part of the world, only a few bits and pieces about the game are known; according to the teaser site BioWare’s opened up, the game will offer “dynamic new combat mechanics,” “a new visual style,” and tells a story that spans a decade. And that’s it for now.

The game’s been said to be “visually super hot” in the past, by BioWare’s own Greg Zeschuk mind you, and may have already been dated for February 1, 2011. Best get those savegames ready then.

The reveal trailer is promised for next month, August 17. Until then, there’s a few pieces of art to go over in the gallery.
