More Dragon Age II Pre-Order Bonuses

By Jonathan Barnes, 7 years ago
Although the deadline has passed for the free upgrade to the Bioware Signature Edition of Dragon Age II, Bioware has just released details on some new, in-game bonuses for those still interested in pre-ordering.

Those who pre-order Dragon Age II will receive the Lion of Orlais Shield and the Fadeshear Sword. The Lion of Orlais Shield will increase your health and provide a bonus in XP gain while the Fadeshear Sword does additional damage against demons and the undead. Game Informer has also managed to get a picture of Hawke using both.

In addition, gamers who purchase a new copy of the game will also gain access to "The Black Emporium" which Bioware describes with the following:

Nestled deep under Kirkwall, you'll find a market with a curious collection of items, some for sale, some for free, and ranging from the mundane to the myserious! One artifact can even transform your very body, face, hair, eyes - all new! We've even granted you your very own mabari war hound to call to your side with a whistle - a boon in battle and a beloved pet at home. Visit the Black Emporium today, and you'll be the envy of adventurers everywhere. Your invitation awaits!
Dragon Age II is set for release on the 8th of March in North America and the 11th of March in Europe.
