We've received official word on the release date for the Dragon Age 2 demo, and a bonus for completing it as well, details after the break.
After some hype and circumstance, Bioware has announced that the demo for Dragon Age 2 will be available for PC, XBox 360, and PS3 on February 22. Furthermore, for completing the demo before May 31, 2011, you'll also be getting a promotional sword with bonuses to health, mana, and combat abilities.
An interesting note is that the demo will be divided in two parts. Much like the Mass Effect 2 demo, you'll be allowed to play through the intro and then a later part to showcase the abilities that will be available to you as the game progresses. You'll also be able to make a save file after playing through the intro, which will allow you to hop right in after buying the full version.
