Let's skip the formalities and just say it: BioWare wants you to buy Felicia Day for Valentine's Day. No, not buy something for her, but purchase Felicia Day herself. And no, not in any illegal or gross sense of the word -- Dragon Age: Redemption, the six-part webseries available on Machinima's YouTube channel since October, is coming out in DVD form on February 14, complete with behind-the-scenes extras, a commentary track and blooper reel.

Dragon Age: Redemption parallels the story in Dragon Age 2's digital add-on, Mark of the Assassin, which features Day as an elf who assassinates things. Or, as Flatiron Film Company describes both forms of media, Felicia Day cosplaying!

FLATIRON FILM COMPANY RELEASES "DRAGON AGE: REDEMPTION,"
STARRING FELICIA DAY, FEBRUARY 14 ON DVD – All 6 episodes plus bonus

Creator and Star of "The Guild" Brings Best-Selling Video Game to Life

In front of a packed panel at the 2011 San Diego Comic Con, The Guild creator Felicia Day unveiled the series' trailer for the exciting new web original she wrote and produced, DRAGON AGE: REDEMPTION. Following the premiere of the series in October 2011 on Machinima.com, all six episodes are now available on one DVD – with exclusive bonus material.

Set in the same time period as the hit Role-Playing Game (RPG), Dragon Age II, DRAGON AGE: REDEMPTION stars Day 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.

DRAGON AGE: REDEMPTION is a match made in gamer heaven. From Electronic Arts' BioWare label, Dragon Age II sold 1 million copies in the first two weeks of its release in March 2011. The Guild, still going strong in its 5th season, is one of the most watched web series of all time and a valuable franchise for Ms. Day.

More than 40 minutes of bonus material includes: Bioware TV's "Working with Felicia"; Dragon Age Trailers and Premium Content; "Making Of" Stunts, Costumes and Characters; Audio Commentary with the Director and Producer; Bloopers.
