Dragon Age 2 is a sequel to the dark fantasy RPG series Dragon Age developed by Bioware. The game will take place some time after the Blight of Ferelden in the original DA:O, and feature a new protagonist: Hawke, a Blight survivor from Lothering.

Unlike in the first game, the main character of DA2 will be fully voiced; players will be able to choose their gender and class, but not the race. It is going to be similar to the Mass Effect series in this regard. Bioware promises an epic story that will span over a decade and follow your rise to power. You’ll also have several opportunities for romance with party members and other NPCs.

Some characters from Dragon Age: Origins will make an appearance in DA2, including Flemeth, the Witch of the Wilds. Hawke will meet her before she is killed by the Warden in the original game. Players will also be able to import their game saves, so the choices they made in Origins or Awakening will be reflected in the world of Dragon Age II.
