Dragon Age 2 trailer introduces The Exiled Prince

Don’t ask me why BioWare has stuck Dragon Age II DLC up on the console networks a week before release – you can’t play it. But this trailer for The Exiled Prince maybe explains why I rushed off to buy it anyway.

The titular Exiled Prince is one Sebastian Vael, an extra companion for Hawke and co, with a funny haircut but a dramatic backstory.

“Sworn to the priesthood as a boy, the noble archer Sebastian Vael is thrust back into the viper’s nest of princely politics when his family is brutally murdered, leaving him as the sole surviving heir. Choose to either avenge Sebastian’s murdered family and reclaim his title or direct his holy vengeance on your enemies in Kirkwall.”

For the really keen, the DLC’s official mini-site is hosting a short story about Vael, penned by BioWare lead writer, David Gaider.

See the trailer below.
