Dungeon Siege II Preview

IGN PC is offering up a closer look at the Dire Wolf and mysterious Tomb of the Champion from Gas Powered Games' Dungeon Siege II. An excerpt about the latter:
The Tomb of the Champion is a relic of the First Age, and a monument to one of the champions of the Northern Reaches -- a kingdom allied with Azunai, the Defender. This tribe of Azunites had elaborate burial rituals: the body of the champion was cremated while the minstrels sang of his deeds for three days and three nights. At sunrise on the fourth day, his ashes were placed in his coffin, which was interred (complete with a death mask on top) inside his sealed personal crypt.
