Dragon Age II Champion Trailer

Choose your champion's class in Dragon Age II. Will you fight as the mighty warrior, cunning mage or the nimble rogue.

Watch Video

The game's looking great. I'd really like to see some images of the female protagonist too though.

Wow that trailer was loud, even so it needs to hurry up and be March 8 already

I guess it's rogue for me again, although it promises less sneaky and more stab,dodge,roll gameplay. Something like a shadowdancer.

Mage, Definetely Mage for me :D

Mage. It has the best outfit.

Assuming we keep some of the old sub-classes, it's arcane warrior for me :D
Or rogue ofc, that just looks awesome.

Good job making the 3 classes look distinct. /sarcasm

Can't wait for this. I'll be choosing Mage :)

Cone. Of. Cold :P

Rogue. As always. And I don't like them to be backstabbing and invisible. Dashing duelist with lighting quick attacks, rather.

He can't be bothered with the strawberry jam on his face though, can he.

Looks pretty... Umm... Generic?

This whole choose warrior, mage or thief stereotype is getting a little old don't we think?
At best, this just looks like what Fable could have looked like, at worst it makes Fable seem like a better game in that you aren't limited to only one role...

Really thought bioware might have moved on from this by now.

[edit] Oh and that blood looks horrible, just sayin...

I hope they'll make Arcan warrior a tad more accessable. Its hard being a healer/DPS mage then switching over to a AOE/battle mage. But I'll probably be a rouge on my first playthrough.

WE all know this is exactly what the game isn'tgoing to look like (animation wise).
But I think that this is only a guideline to again show people the main variety in gameplay. They probably made some subclasses that soften the definitios a bit.

Visually nice.
However does seem a pointless trailer. It's message is "You can be one of three classes that exist in every single RPG in the whole of creation, except for Death Spank".
Does give a flavour for each of the three classes, I just don't see why they couldn't have done a statement about it.

I want that staff sword.

No really i was going to go mage anyways but that convinced me

I'm a fan of wizards (as you might guess by my handle) so of course I'll be playing a mage first, but I'll probably try all three classes at some point.

I see the trailer as being pretty pointless as that didn't appear to be game play footage, and it really didn't reveal much except for classes we already knew about. We have no idea how much those classes can be customized, and how much versatility is in them.

Interestingly it seems like they have shown videos of Hawke throwing spells while fighting with weapons in melee in some of the trailers, this does make it seem unlikely that anything like that has been implemented into the gameplay though, except perhaps as an Arcane Warrior type spec if it still exists.

When I saw the Revenant... <3
They were so fun to play in the first one

Tis a shame that the game combat won't be like that

No gameplay footage in this trailer at all?

=\

Y'know, it'd be nice to see the female Protagonist in the trailers at some point...

Rogue for me. Though the mage looks promising too.

Mage for me! Unless they make us wear those hats again...

*shudder*

So I take it archery's still the worst?

Looks like they're turning the mage into telekinesis.

I know the mage in Dragon Age: Origins sucked and they want to ad a little more oomph to the class, but this can hardly be called a mage anymore. The first game that does the role of sorcerer justice is still a long way away, I'm afraid.

It also looked a little bit generic. I don't think these combat moves are meant to be seen from up close.

Ok, yup, that fucking tears it. I'm being a Mage, outfit kicks ass, and the staff sword thing is boss.

They've announced it but no-one including me noticed. A kindly soul on these forums pointed me here:

It seems to be the only image of her available. I'm pretty sure that Hawke will be slightly customisable, so they'll only look like this if you make no changes.

Actually, there's a gameplay demo out and while the combat doesn't look exactly like this, it's a lot closer to this than the first one. In any case, warrior for James. James like kill things with swords... Fun...

Judging by the trailer, the mage is the way to go. Just as fast as the Rogue, close quarter combat like the warrior, and the mage can use magic. That said, I hate mages, so I'll be playing as the Rogue (like pretty much everyone else on this forum).

You know, for all their supposed rarity, High Dragons show up at an alarming rate in the Dragon Age realm.

True that.
Really, can't you be a tad more original?
It's okay to not follow Tolkien's 50 or so year old lead, you know?

Don't get me wrong, I don't mind that they's only 3 generic roles to pick as in DA2 (though originality is always welcomed).

It's just like if Bioware released a trailer highlighting the fact that there's clouds and birds in the sky of Therdas. It was a waste of time. A very pretty waste of time.

What do you expect? When Bioware has a speaking player character, the media will ALWAYS be with the Male build.

Actual:

Thank you! :) Much appreciated.

RPG great hair: check. All systems go.

Seriously they made a trailer just to show 3 classes? and the class themself is so predictable.
Why do they even bother? Bioware you just waste 3 min of my time.
I clicked this thread hoping to something like the DA2 announce trailer, not something as obivous as "sky is blue".

I don't know if Bioware should be more renowned for their excellent writing and storytelling, or their incredible ability to misrepresent gameplay in trailers.

That is a ridiculous amount of claret, isn't it? :P

Looks pretty awesome, if the choice of only three is kinda limited... But I'll trust Bioware.
Looking forward to seeing what they've done with this mysterious 'Hawke' character.
