One of the best PC RPGs released in the past few years, Dragon Age will get a new game turning the series into a new franchise: Dragon Age 2 has been announced by BioWare and EA, and it’s expected to hit store shelves sooner than some might have expected: in March 2011!

With Dragon Age 2, the developers are promising revolutionize the genre again, infusing the universe with more action, a new, more responsive combat system and a dynamic story that is already among the most multifaceted in gaming. And hopefully this is not just PR bullshweitt.

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.

We’re expecting even more details in the near future…
