Behold, Dragon Age fans! Are you beholding? Good. It’s a big day for fans of BioWare’s Dragon Age franchise. For owners of Dragon Age II, a new DLC titled “Mark of the Assassin,” is now available to download on Mac, PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. The new DLC will introduce the character, party member and slightly murderous elf assassin Tallis, voiced by actress and geek-goddess Felicia Day. Tallis joins Hawke in order to infiltrate an Orlesian estate and steal an ancient, and valuable relic.
The character of Tallis is also the star of the new webseries Dragon Age: Redemption. Written, produced and starring Day as the elf assassin, Tallis has one final shot at redemption when she is tasked by the Qunari with locating and rescuing a mage that recently escaped from a Chantry prison. The series also stars Doug Jones (Hellboy, Hellboy II: The Golden Army) as Saarebas.
When it comes to web based series, Day is arguably the reigning queen. Her own series, The Guild, recently completed its fifth season, and she is a recurring guest-star in the Zelda-inspired series, The Legend of Neil. She also co-starred in Joss Whedon’s award winning web-based musical Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. Basically, she is extremely busy on the intertubes.
The first of six episodes debuted today at midnight, and new episodes will air on the Machinima YouTube page every Tuesday at Midnight.
