Now, forced to fight for survival in an ever-changing world, you must gather the deadliest of allies, amass fame and fortune, and seal your place in history. This is the story of how the world changed forever. The legend of your Rise to Power begins now.

Dragon Age 2 thrusts players into the role of Hawke, a penniless refugee who rises to power to become the single most important character in the world of Dragon Age. Known to be a survivor of the Blight and the Champion of Kirkwall, the legend around Hawke’s rise to power is shrouded in myth and rumor. Featuring an all-new story spanning 10 years, players will help tell that tale by making tough moral choices, gathering the deadliest of allies, amassing fame and fortune, and sealing their place in history. The way you play will write the story of how the world is changed forever.

Players who complete specific goals in Dragon Age Legends will have the opportunity to earn up to five exclusive items which can be used in Dragon Age II*. Additionally, players chosen to participate in the closed beta will receive the Jade Empire inspired Death’s Hand Armor for their hero once Dragon Age Legends enters open beta.

Players can sign up for the closed beta, once accepted you will be able to take on challenging quests, earn loot, share rewards and build your kingdom. Recruit friends and work together to take on demons and darkspawn. Become a legendary hero within the Dragon Age universe.

When Dragon Age II launches on March 8, owners of Dragon Age II along with current Dragon Age Legends beta players can get a head start on playing the release version of Dragon Age Legends before it officially launches to the rest of the public later in the month by signing in with their EA accounts. Players who purchase and log in to Dragon Age II by March 15 will also receive the Dragon Age Legends BioWare Signature pack the next time they log in to Dragon Age Legends. This includes Hawke, the main character in Dragon Age II, as a companion, a bundle of in-game items to help accelerate their progress and an exclusive that will forever designate a player as a BioWare Signature member.
