Dragon Age II DLC coming in October

Fans of Dragon Age II (me) and superfluous DLC (also, sadly, me) will have another reason to revisit Kirkwall on October 11. BioWare’s latest addition to Hawke’s adventures, Mark of the Assassin, will team the hero up with elven assassin, Tallis, as they attempt to steal an ancient relic from an Orlesian nobleman’s fortified estate. The DLC will flesh out the Orlesians and Qunari and adds new environments, foes and gear

While that sounds horribly generic, Hawke’s new companion, Tallis, sounds a tad more interesting. She has her own unique fighting style which is somewhere between Varric’s and Isabella’s, so expect plenty of ranged skills as well as some up close and personal brutality. The Guild writer and star, Felicia Day, will be providing the voice and look of the assassin as it’s the character she portrays in the Dragon Age web series, Dragon Age: Redemption.
