With the recent uprising of Dragon Age: Awakening, everyone who has purchased the game legally received a flyer inside with a photo of a dragon and the date 02/01/11.
Today BioWare stated they will be releasing the “Prequel” to Dragon Age in the spring of next year, which subsequently has nothing to do with the flyer.
In the press release BioWare stated that you will be playing as a young Alistair, finding yourself in a constant battle with the Templars before eventually gaining rank among the Grey Wardens.
This comes as a surprise, that the prequel game will remove most of the RPG fundamentals from the original title. No character customization, no imported elves, squat, zip. Don’t get me wrong, Alistair is cute and witty but can he hold his own game?
There is still a lot of questions about Dragon Age 2 that I’m sure will be answered soon (at E3 I assume), but one still remains. What the hell is the flyer advertising? maybe it was a typo? maybe BioWare Bazaar 2? who knows.
I’ll see you on 02/01/11 to find out.
Happy April fools to all Citizens of Fereldan.
