BioWare has released a new video for Dragon Age 2, showing two methods of approaching combat in the game.
The footage comes from the PC version of the game. In the trailer, Mike Laidlaw talks us through how players can approach combat in an action-RPG style (ie; real time) or think things through more tactically with a pause-and-play style. It’s also possible to mix up these styles, depending upon the situation.
In addition, the minimum and recommended PC specs for the game have been released. Something to note here is that Dragon Age 2 will require 7GB of hard drive space. This compares with 20GB for the first in the series, which did not have a voiced protagonist. Either BioWare has got a whole lot better at compressing data, or this will be a shorter game.
