From Red Dog Culture House studio and BioWare, the premiere trailer introduces us to Miriam (Kimberly Brooks), an elven mercenary who was once enslaved as she rises to become a hero. She joins a group of experienced adventurers to steal an artifact that's dangerous and fueled by blood magic. Of course, they're not the only people who want to get their hands on this item. Check out the action-packed trailer below.

The official synopsis for Dragon Age: Absolution reads, "When a heist against the most powerful man in Tevinter goes south, an elven mercenary named Miriam (Kimberly Brooks) is forced into a desperate fight for survival. Now, to save herself and her friends, Miriam will have to confront the tragic past she’s spent a lifetime trying to escape."

In addition to Brooks, the series features Matthew Mercer (Critical Role) as Fairbanks, Ashly Burch (Horizon Zero Dawn) as Qwydion, Sumalee Montano (Ghost of Tsushima) as Hira, Phil LaMarr (Futurama) as Rolan, and more.
