Felicia Day, aka the girl who is in every successful Internet video sensation ever, will be in yet another (hopefully) successful Internet video sensation. Bioware is making a Dragon Age web series and Day will be starring in it. As if we needed more proof that the people at Bioware have good taste.
The series, entitled Dragon Age: Redemption, will be released in six parts. More interesting is that Day, creator of hit series, The Guild, as well as co-star of the best Internet based musical comedy based on a supervillain ever, Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog, is the one behind Redemption. She’s not just a name that will be used to get people to watch. Day will star as Tallis, an Elven assassin… give me a minute, the words “Day,” “Elven” and “assassin” combined have sent my heart all atwitter… ahem. She will be an Elven assassin hired by the Qunari to capture a rogue mage. Three things about this. 1) Assassin’s don’t really capture things all that well. They more… stab things. 2) Can you be a rogue and a mage? Or am I thinking too D & D here? 3) Felicia Day will star as an Elven assassin. And there goes my heart again…
“I’m a huge Dragon Age fan, and I have been looking for a follow up project to ‘The Guild’ for quite some time,” said Day. “I was thrilled when the opportunity to work with BioWare materialized. Dragon Age: Redemption allows me to tell a fantasy story in a new way, using a universe I really love. It has been a dream working together.”
Dragon Age: Redemption will release sometime this summer. You can get a sneak preview February 16 on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on NBC. You can also check out some behind the scenes stuff on Gametrailers TV With Geoff Keighley on Spike TV February 24. The Dragon Age II demo, unfortunately sans Felicia Day as an Elven assassin, launches on February 22 with the full game coming on March 8. The game will be for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC and Mac. So I guess today we’ve all learned something awesome. You guys learned about a cool new Dragon Age thingy and I learned that the word Elven is supposed to be capitalized. Who knew, right?
