New Dragon Age 2 DLC Announced: Mark of the Assassin

Turns out that Felicia Day's appearance on GT.TV last night was to announce a new story-based Dragon Age 2 DLC named "Mark of the Assassin." It features an adventure involving Tallis, an elven assassin character created by Felicia for her upcoming web series Dragon Age: Redemption, so it all ties in together nicely. We've scrounged up the GT-world-exclusive trailer and the video of the GT.TV segment with Felicia Day after the break.

Here is the official trailer in friendly Youtube form:

And we've uploaded the 1:18 minute segment featuring Felicia Day of the GT.TV episode from last night for you. You can also watch the episode in its full glory, which also features some cool footage of the upcoming Batman: Arkham City.

BioWare guy Chris Priestly kindly provided fans with a description to better flesh out the story and a list of key features that you can expect in Mark of the Assassin:

We are very pleased to announce the next Dragon Age II story based DLC, Mark of the Assassin!

Hawke meets a mysterious female Elvin assassin named Tallis, voiced by the talented Felicia Day, and joins her to steal an ancient relic from an Orlesian Baron in his well-guarded estate. A cross between Varric and Isabela, Tallis is a rogue who introduces a new fighting style to add more variety in combat. Get up close and personal with her deadly skills or stand back and pick off enemies with her ranged combat abilities.

Mark of the Assassin features new items, new enemies and monsters and new environments as well as giving players the opportunity to experience a new, tactical way to play with the return of Stealth gameplay. Plus, along with the new environments and monsters, you will learn more about the Orlesians and Qunari.

Mark of the Assassin will be available for download on the PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 on October 11 for $9.99 or 800 Microsoft points.

There you have it, the DLC is due out on October 11, 2011, and it will cost $10 (or 800 BioWare points).
