As promised, Game Informer have dished the dirt on the next iteration ofthe Dragon Age franchise and there are definitely some changes afoot.
The most notable change is that the main character now has a name, Hawke. It seems as though BioWare are taking a leaf out of Mass Effect's book as not only will his race be pre-determined, but he will also be fully voiced.
Players will still be able to choose Hawke's gender and class, but that's about it. And they'll be able to do this when the game launches in March 2011.
