Dragon Age 2 Trailer Talks Origins

The origins of Dragon Age 2 are discussed in the first 'making of' trailer, with members of developer BioWare talking about the early days of the fantasy RPG sequel's development, when the broad strokes were still being worked out.

Thoughts offered include executive producer Mark Darrah's musing "If you're telling a dark fantasy, you don't want combat to feel like you're playing a chess game with a friend." Unfortunately, when I played twenty minutes of the Xbox 360 edition earlier this year, it felt like poor and dated beat 'em up combat had been bolted onto Dragon: Age Origins' tactical stylings. This time, "the new shit" is more than marketing.

Dragon Age 2 is due out for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on March 8, 2011.
