EA confirmed that the rumoured Dragon Age II demo will, indeed, release on February 22.

Versions will release for PC, 360 and PS3.

The news comes after a week of rumour, the latest of which was branded “speculation” by BioWare overnight.

The demo will allow players to play through the game’s prologue, choosing from three different character classes.

You’ll learn more about Hawke, and, after “finishing the prologue, players will enter a key new location in the world of Dragon Age, Kirkwall, befriending Isabela, a romantic interest in the game who is also a deadly smuggler.”

Even better, you’ll unlock a special weapon, Hayder’s Razor, upon completing the demo. The sword’s “an ancient dwarven blade which increases health, mana, and combat abilities, in the full release of Dragon Age II.”

The full game’s out on PS3, 360 and PC on March 11, 2011 in Europe.
