BioWare has posted a Call to Arms on the official Dragon Age II site, and it appears that should the demo of the game get downloaded enough, the firm will unlock some goodies.
According to the site: “If we get over 1 million demo downloads and logins on the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 combined before March 1, we will unlock two in-game items for the entire community to use in Dragon Age II. Demo download progress will be tracked on this page, so check back often!”
The items that will be unlocked are:
- The Far Cliffs of Kirkwall: Written by a Fereldan refugee as she fled the Blight, this book of poems describes her dreams of a new start in Kirkwall, the city across the sea. Readers will surely be enriched by her insights. (Gives money when read.)
- Lothering’s Lament: Written by a Fereldan refugee as she fled the Blight, this book of poems contains touching reminiscences of all she had to leave behind. Readers will surely benefit from her experience. (Gives XP boost when read.)
There seems to be no end to the various goodies or ways to get a hold of extras for the game.
The demo of the game will be unlocked on February 22, and in it, folks will play through the game’s prologue, choosing from three different character classes. They’ll also learn more about Hawke and “hone the skills and abilities that will make them the ultimate hero.”
After finishing the prologue, players will enter a location called Kirkwall, meet your romantic interest in the game Isabela, and upon completion of the demo, unlock a special weapon: Hayder’s Razor which is a dwarven blade that increases health, mana, and combat abilities in the full release of the game.
Dragon Age 2 will be available on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 come March 8 in the US and March 11 in Europe.
