Which Character Class Will You Play In Dragon Age II?

BioWare's Champions trailer for Dragon Age II asks players a very fundamental question: Which combat style will your version of the hero Hawke embrace?

Dragon Age II may have done away with the three different races of the original game, but there's still the question of class. The game's hero, Hawke, can be a warrior, a mage, or a rogue. How can he possibly decide?


Being a mage ideally keeps you far away from the action, casting spells from a safe distance that rapidly becomes less safe if you pull your enemies'' attention away from your warrior. The rogue is all about graceful attacks, big damage, and finishing off enemies before they can do too much damage. The warrior is a metal-encased tank.

Me? I'm going with a female rogue Hawke for starters, and then we'll see what comes of that. How about you?

You know what I really, really want?

For a game to be 90% as cool as it's trailer.

No, seriously. I'm going to be pissed if I can't drop my shield and EXCALIBUR my sword into an enemy. Or hit a dude with my staff and then rip a guy into a fine mist. And if I roll a rogue, he better back flip over all sorts of flying things.

I guess you could say I've been bitter about trailers ever since ODST (if that game had been 10% as cool as it's trailer . . . ), but seriously.
