image005 Bioware Unleashes Dragon Age II: Mark of the Assassin

Remember the contest that we held recently, giving away keys to the new Dragon Age II DLC titled “Mark of the Assassin”?  You do?  Great, because Bioware has announced that Dragon Age II: Mark of the Assassin is available today on Xbox Live, Playstation Network, PC and Mac for $9.99 (or 800 Microsoft or Bioware points).  Of course, as we all know, the DLC adds a new party member and playable character modeled after Felicia Day (of The Guild, among other things).

“I’m a huge fan of Dragon Age and working with BioWare on Mark of the Assassin has been a dream come true,” said Felicia Day. “The colorful characters and deep story-telling of Dragon Age is what BioWare does best and the way the team brought Tallis into the fiction felt very natural. I was extremely excited to use their amazing world as my creative playground in developing her character.”

“We instantly recognized Felicia’s passion, expertise and inherent knowledge of the Dragon Age lore and knew it was something special,” said Mark Darrah, Executive Producer on Dragon Age. “Felicia is a really great fit for Tallis and incorporating such a passionate fan into our fiction was an opportunity we couldn’t pass up.”

Also, the first episode of the web series Dragon Age: Redemption has launched over on Youtube, for those of you who want the entire story behind Tallis.
