Felicia Day first announced in February she would play the role of writer, co-producer and Tallis, a headstrong, sarcastic, dirty fightin’ Elvin assassin in the live-action iteration of the uber-popular video game Dragon Age. A week later, Day and Jimmy Falon showed people who watch Late Night a sneak peek of the Dragon Age: Redemption original web series. Today, Day, Dragon Age creator BioWare, and the entertainment industry’s go-to distributor of high-profile, gamer oriented online originals, Machinima.com, released the official trailer and let the internet know when interested parties will be able to catch the premiere.
The first of six weekly installments of Dragon Age: Redemption will debut on Tuesday, October 11 on Machinima’s YouTube channel. That’s the same date BioWare will make available the next downloadable content package for Dragon Age II. Mark of the Assassin will reportedly feature Day’s live-action character Tallis in game.
Here’s the Redemption trailer to whet your appetite for flesh and bone, fantasy-based, RPG-oriented entertainment:
Machinima is fast-becoming the premiere distribution channel for big budget original web series. Mortal Kombat: Legacy recently finished a successful run on the network and AMC chose Machinima as its distribution channel for its The Walking Dead web series Torn Apart.
But this isn’t the first time Machinima’s run a Dragon Age original. Back in May 2010, the world’s largest online video game and entertainment network released Dragon Age: Warden’s Fall, an animated machinima (with a lowercase “m”) series using the Dragon’s Age toolset about the last mission of a Grey Warden.
