The combat animation guys should get a raise. It takes creativity to make a Mage look as badass as a typical warrior/soldier class.

Interesting how Bioware has been choosing templates for their main characters, starting from Shepard based on a real supermodel's face.

Dragon Age 2 looks so damn badass now, combat looks faster and much more exciting to look at during gameplay.
I can definitely see myself play through all 3 classes, especially mage.

This is the first game I have seen were Mages are just awesome, kind of like if shaolin monnks used a staff with powers, that sort of thing, really awesome.
From long range they use magic but from close range they use their staff/blade WITH magic to enhance the attacks.

Can't wait to play the demo until March!

PS. Kudos to Bioware that they made an awesome CGI trailer were Hawke fights like a badass mage and yet they implemented that into actual gameplay :)

Oh man that Rogue is a freaking Attacking Demon!!

Everything looks so badass in this game seriously, even Mages that I don't like them in DA:O Im considering making a playthrough with that class!!

Im taking my sweet time with DAO at the moment to be ready for this masterpiece!!

I already have like 10 items ready for launch for this!!

So amazing!!

Sigh they just keep using "default" male model for every trailer out there... That's really sad.

Oh dear, I was looking forward to playing Two Worlds 2 on Feb 8, but as this game has been push back to Feb 25, I might just save me cash and get this one instead, as I loved the last Dragon Age.

What did you expect?

It was exactly the same with their Mass Effect series.
They do that so they have a iconic character to represent their boxarts, wallpapers, gameplay...etc. but everyone knows you can totally customize your male/female character.

They've made the Mage look worhty of trying this time round and not just some pleb in a dress like the first, the mage looks bad-ass now.

Cant wait for the demo on the 22nd to try the combat out!!

Thats the character you will have, there is no other, this is Hawke's story.

Nice trailer, but i get the feeling they have made the combat and animation look better than it actually will be whilst playing.

Loved the music at the end of the trailer.

Any improvement in the combat department over DA:O is a good thing.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure they stated there will be no character customization this time. They want you to play as one guy and follow his story..

There WILL be character customization, that has been confirmed.
Just like Mass Effect they want someone "iconic" to show off the gameplay easily without keep making new characters in every new demo they show, and show in cmmercials, boxarts, wallpapers...etc.

But just like Mass Effect, you can customize the head and only choose the first name and have Hawke as secondary so the NPCs can give you a name, basically give dialogue to your character as well than the old age text decisions.

So dont worry, character customization from Dragon Age 1 is back, only thing that isnt going to be there is the race.
You can only be human.

    KORNdog @crookedmind: higher framerates = more responsive controls. pitting someone with a 25-30 fps version of BF4 with someone with a 50-60 fps version of BF4 would be pretty unfair. (0 minute ago)
