BioWare is issuing the call to arms – a million strong for the Dragon Age 2 demo. If the total number of downloads can crack the one million mark, we’ll all be rewarded with two new DLC items, so spread the word.
The two new items are both tomes — Lothering’s Lament and The Far Cliffs of Kirkwall — one granting additional experience points and the other adding some free gold. Sounds pretty good, huh, and all you have to do is download the demo to do your part (which you were probably going to do anyway, right?).
Here’s the word from the official demo page:
February 22, 2011 marks the launch of the Dragon Age II Demo and a Call to Arms for all BioWare fans. We are actively recruiting an army of Champions, and if we get over 1 million demo downloads and logins on the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 combined before March 1st, we will unlock two in-game items for the entire community to use in Dragon Age II. Demo download progress will be tracked on this page, so check back often!
To get your download counted, you will need to log into your EA account while playing the demo.
Now about the two items.
The Far Cliffs of Kirkwall – Written by a Fereldan refugee as she fled the Blight, this book of poems describes her dreams of a new start in Kirkwall, the city across the sea. Readers will surely be enriched by her insights. (Gives money when read.)
Lothering’s Lament – Written by a Fereldan refugee as she fled the Blight, this book of poems contains touching reminiscences of all she had to leave behind. Readers will surely benefit from her experience. (Gives XP boost when read.)
