Dragon Age 2: Mark of the Assassin DLC announced
Dragon Age 2 is set to receive new DLC, according to a new trailer from Game Trailers, released today. The new DLC, entitled ‘Mark of the Assassin‘ looks set to feature the elven assassin Tallis, voiced by Felicia Day. Fans of the Dragon Age series will know Day had previously announced she was starring in a six part web series set in the Dragon Age universe – and this DLC appears set to introduce the character she will be playing in the webseries into the actual Dragon Age game universe.
Chris Priestly, on Bioware’s official forums, provided further details on the new DLC:
Hawke meets a mysterious female Elvin assassin named Tallis, voiced by the talented Felicia Day, and joins her to steal an ancient relic from an Orlesian Baron in his well-guarded estate. A cross between Varric and Isabela, Tallis is a rogue who introduces a new fighting style to add more variety in combat. Get up close and personal with her deadly skills or stand back and pick off enemies with her ranged combat abilities.
Mark of the Assassin features new items, new enemies and monsters and new environments as well as giving players the opportunity to experience a new, tactical way to play with the return of Stealth gameplay. Plus, along with the new environments and monsters, you will learn more about the Orlesians and Qunari.
Mark of the Assassin will be available for download on the PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 on October 11 for $9.99 or 800 Microsoft points.
