Felicia Day + Dragon Age 2
We’re already huge fans the Dragon Age series, which kicks off its second installment on March 8th. But the wait is excruciating. How can we fill the hole? With an awesome press release from the good people of Bioware, that’s how. We’ll let it speak for itself:
What do you get when you combine one of the richest RPGs with the creator of one of the most watched web series of all time? Dragon Age™: Redemption. This all-new six-part web series is based in the Dragon Age universe and created by Felicia Day, the force behind the blockbuster web series “The Guild.” Scheduled to premiere this summer, Dragon Age: Redemption is set in the same time period as BioWare’s Dragon Age II.
Oh, corporate boiler plate. How I love it so. And because I am a total cliche, I also love Felicia Day so. We all know she’s cuter than a bumblebee riding a baby elephant, but as we’ve seen from watching The Guild (and from her ubiquotous appearances at LA area gaming events) she’s also made from 100% Gamerantium. In other words, this is just full of so much win… in the dorkiest possible way. And to prove it, here’s what Felicia had to say:
“I’m a huge Dragon Age fan, and I have been looking for a follow up project to ‘The Guild’ for quite some time,” said Day. “I was thrilled when the opportunity to work with BioWare materialized. Dragon Age: Redemption allows me to tell a fantasy story in a new way, using a universe I really love. It has been a dream working together.”
Apparently, Day stars as an Elf assassin hired to take down an evil wizard planning to do some seriously evil wizarding shizz to the Dragon Age world. She’ll collect a group of followers who of course will all have different outlooks, motives, and amounts of clothing, and they’ll have to set aside their differences or become a team or something to win. Basically, it’s the live action version of the BioWare template. And we can’t argue with that.
You can catch the world premier, presented by Ms. Day herself, tomorrow night on Jimmy Fallon. After that, you’ll have to wait until Summer to see the whole thing. But that’s no big deal, since you can spend the interim playing Dragon Age II. Meanwhile? Who wants to bet this ties into some pretty keen Dragon Age II DLC later this year?
