If one million users download the impending Dragon Age II demo, two new in-game items will be unlocked, developer BioWare has announced.

If the magical million mark is reached between the demo's 22nd February release date and 1st March, you'll be able to get hold of two books of poetry: The Far Cliffs of Kirkwall and Lothering's Lament. The former grants you extra cash when opened, whereas the latter gives you an XP boost.

We'll be honest, we'd rather have a ruddy great double-edged axe, but you've got to take what you can get.

The announcement on the game's official site reminds players to log in to their EA account while playing to register their download towards the target. Downloads on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 all count.

The full Dragon Age II experience follows on the aforementioned platforms from 11th March.
