Felicia Day to appear in Dragon Age: Redemption

Looks like our favorite girl gamer next door is getting a new web series, Dragon Age: Redemption. I love the original game and really looking forward to the sequel. And now I have something else to look forward too! Here is the press release from BioWare:

What do you get when you combine one of the richest RPGs with the creator of one of the most watched web series of all time? Dragon Age™: Redemption. This all-new six-part web series is based in the Dragon Age universe and created by Felicia Day, the force behind the blockbuster web series “The Guild.” Scheduled to premiere this summer, Dragon Age: Redemption is set in the same time period as BioWare’s Dragon Age II.

Look for the world premiere of Dragon Age: Redemption this Wednesday, February 16, presented by Felicia Day on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” on NBC (check your local listings), and get your first on-set look at Dragon Age: Redemption on “Gametrailers TV with Geoff Keighley” on Spike TV, Thursday, February 24 (check your local listings).

“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.”

In Dragon Age: Redemption, Day stars as Tallis, an Elven assassin hired by the Qunari to capture a rogue mage intent on wreaking havoc throughout the world. In her quest to find this dangerous mage, Tallis is joined by other companions who are not always aligned in their beliefs and goals, but who band together to defeat their foe, in an attempt to restore peace and balance to this dark fantasy universe.

Day’s original web series, “The Guild,” which follows the story of a group of players in a fictitious MMORPG, was an instant internet phenomenon, attracting more than 100 million viewers in three years. Day is also known as the main love interest, Penny, in Joss Whedon‘s Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, and for her recurring role as Vi on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. For more information about Felicia, including updates on Dragon Age: Redemption, please follow her on Twitter @ feliciaday.

Dragon Age II has been named by CNN, Yahoo! Games, GameSpot and Wired.com among others as one of the most anticipated games of 2011. Gamers can get a small taste of what BioWare’s action RPG has to offer when the Dragon Age II demo launches February 22 on the Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system, the PlayStation®3 computer and entertainment system and PC.
