BioWare’s RPG sequel is coming soon to a digital download service near you. Well, a demo version at least. Before Dragon Age II launches for real on March 8th, EA and BioWare will give wannabe fantasy heroes and heroines a head start on their quest for power in the release of a playable demo on February 22nd. Consisting of the game’s prologue chapter, the demo will be available for all three platform users — PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 — and will even come with an unlockable bonus item to carry over into the full game.

In the demo, players will venture through the game’s prologue, choosing from three different character classes. They’ll also learn more about Hawke and hone their skills and abilities that will make them the ultimate hero. After finishing the prologue, players will enter a key new location in the world of Dragon Age, Kirkwall, befriending Isabela, a romantic interest in the game who is also a deadly smuggler. Upon completion of the demo, players will unlock a special weapon, Hayder’s Razor, an ancient dwarven blade which increases health, mana, and combat abilities, in the full release of Dragon Age II.

This demo represents just a small taste of what Dragon Age II has to offer. With a whole new realm to discover, and an all-new hero to become, players will go deeper into the world of Dragon Age unlike ever before in an adventure that shapes itself around every decision you make. The time has now come to engage in action-packed, dynamic combat that allows you to think like a general and fight like a Spartan! The legend of your rise to power begins now!
