Bioware has released a new character trailer for their upcoming expansion Dragon Age: Origins Awaking.
Redwood Shores, CA – February 20, 2010 – The Darkspawn are evolving, becoming more skilled and treacherous opponents. Faced with the task of eliminating this new threat, you will be happy to have on your team someone who isn’t just willing to die in battle – she has to. Sigrun’s fate is sealed – she will do penance by giving her life on the battlefield. But she also has a huge chip on her shoulder, and she plans on taking out as many enemies as possible before she does.
There is only one way to leave the Legion of the Dead: by fulfilling a vow to die in battle against the enemies of Orzammar, a sacrifice that absolves any guilt. Sigrun craves a chance to prove she is more than a worthless gutter-rat, but it’s hard to rush headlong into a battle you won’t survive. After all, when you grow up casteless, you learn to fight for everything. You learn that you have to watch out for yourself, because no one else will, and the Stone knows no one’s going to miss you when you’re dead. Sigrun’s a survivor, and old habits die hard.
