Hawke might be strong enough as a man, but he makes one damn fine woman. Bioware reveals the more feminine side to Dragon Age II's main character.

In order to tell a more compelling story, Dragon Age II features a main character much like Mass Effect's Commander Shepard. Players can choose between male and female versions of Hawke, the son of a noble family forced to flee the oncoming Blight. With the male version appearing in the game's official trailers, it seems pretty clear which version is the official version.

And now that I've seen the female version, revealed during PAX 2010, I'm damn sure which version I'm playing.

Now that's some heavy metal hotness right there.

So who else is planning on playing female now?

Okay, is it EVER going to be possible to have a female protagonist in a WRPG with long hair? Seriously, BioWare and Bethesda. Enough with the "look at me, I'm one of the boys!" haircuts for the female characters.
