Ryan Syrett @ DBR writes: Dragon Age 2 is Bioware’s sequel to the acclaimed Dragon Age: Origins. You control a Ferelden named Hawke as he and his family escape from the blight, and finds refugee status in Kirkwall. Over the next ten years you control Hawke as he rises to power, re-establishes his family status and eventually become known as ‘The Champion of Kirkwall’.
The story is told by flashbacks via Hawke’s traveling companion Varric, as he separates myth from event to Cassandra Pentaghast, a Seeker of Thedas’ religious Chantry. For some reason or another Pentaghast really wants to find Hawke for what can only be described as ‘unspecified crimes’.
