Dragon Age II Character Reveal

By Rebecca Smith, 5 years ago
Think back to the Grey Wardens in Dragon Age: Origins. This character is a mage who escaped from the Circle of Magi. He was a potential companion in Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening, where players could take on a quest to ensure his freedom. Have you guessed yet?

Alright, alright; I'll stop teasing. Game Informer have exclusively revealed that Anders will be returning in Dragon Age II. Players will now find that he has escaped from the Grey Wardens and is now using his powers to heal refugees from the Blight. Protagonist Hawke finds the mage in the slums of Kirkwall, after seeking out his help.

Do you want to know why his eyes now have a sky-blue glow? I'm afraid that you'll have to play the game for that answer.

Dragon Age II is due to be released on March 8th, 2011, in North America and on March 11th in Europe. A demo will be arriving on February 22nd.
