BioWare's next big role-playing game, Dragon Age II, will be a very different thing. For starters, the sequel sports a "new visual style", readily apparently from concept art and newly released first screen shots of Dragon Age II.
Game Informer magazine subscribers are already basking in printed versions of Dragon Age II's new artistic direction, but now you can see them (legitimately) online.
There's less photorealism and less blood-splattered heroes and villains, with some familiar faces re-imagined. Our new hero, Hawke, appears to have less Uncanny Valley heritage in his blood, thanks to the sequel's new look, but I'm sure you have your own opinions about the new look. So, opinions?
