Bioware: The Guild’s Felicia Day to work on Dragon Age: Redemption

Felicia Day, whose online series “The Guild” provides further evidence that women play games*, will appear in “Dragon Age: Redemption,” a six-part series based on Bioware’s Dragon Age franchise.

From the release:

“I’m a huge Dragon Age
fan, and I have been looking for a follow up project to ‘The Guild’ for
quite some time,” Day said. ”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 is scheduled to show a glimpse of the new series during the Feb. 16 broadcast of “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” The series is set to debut in the summertime.

Bioware’s and EA Games’ “Dragon Age II” is scheduled for a March 8 release.
