Dragon Age: Redemption premiered today on youtube and has already garnered 66,000 views as of 5PM. The show is the first of its kind - the main character, Tallis, has been taken from the Dragon Age II video game and made star of a web series based on her quest. Felicia Day had been approached by Bioware and personally put a lot of time and effort into the project, and so far the web series is looking fantastic!
Felicia Day said on her blog about the new series:
"I believe this is the first time a project has taken a character from a web series into a video game as a playable character, and if you know me, you probably can tell that I am more incentivized by innovation rather than pay checks As a big Dragon Age fan I am thrilled to be able to use their epic fantasy universe to tell a story I created, and then live IN their universe as the character. I did full mo-cap and vocal recording, over 12 hours worth, so this is a truly innovative project. I really hope you enjoy that adventure, Tallis is a fun character to play with!"
The first episode is fun and shows a bit of a dark side to Tallis, an elvin assassin who must succeed in her quest or risk losing everything - including her freedom. If you're playing Dragon Age II - you'll note that this storyline takes place alongside the story in the game, and that Tallis is now available as a playable character in the DLC Mark of the Assassin. Watch the first episode here and let us know your thoughts!
