Dragon Age: Inquisition and next Mass Effect to run on new Frostbite 3 technology

BioWare are making use of the recently demonstrated Frostbite 3 technology to build the next Mass Effect and Dragon Age: Inquisition, indicating a possible next-gen focus for both. (BioWare, Dragon Age 3: Inquisition, EA, Frostbite 3.0, Mass Effect, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

The futures looking bright for gaming.

If they're being pressured again, then it's not looking bright for Bioware. It's going to take one hell of an announcement to win back trust.

Also, you can expect MP in both of these games.

Im more looking forward to DA hooing the rumours are true regarding taking the best bits of both 1 & 2 and combining them and for the record i enjoyed both although i did agree with the fans on some of the bashing 2 got but they did make a more enjoyable combat system.

Never been a fan on mass effect so couldn't comment.

Yeah... this article doesn't make me feel any better about the fate of these two franchises. I never had a problem with the engine that DA:Origins ran on, because it was all about the story. DA 2 had a crap story about a bunch of fetch quests, and now they try and impress us with a new engine. NOBODY CARES ABOUT THE ENGINE, JUST MAKE A GOOD STORY!

With that being said, the FB engine is strong (I can admit to this).

SirBradders: My concern is that Bioware said ME3 was going to be a good mix of the elements present in ME1 and 2, but in the end it was only superficial, and ME3 still didn't feel as RPG. The biggest reason is that while they added more customization for guns, they nerfed the dialogue system because your character would only have 2 dialogue choices at a time, while half of his dialogue was automatic.

Essentially, some scenes in Mass Effect 3 played out as cutscenes instead of interactive dialogue sequences, and i fear that Bioware might end up doing something similar with DA3 :(

"NOBODY CARES ABOUT THE ENGINE" sadly, the comments under the BF4 video say otherwise.

yes but sadly for EA's games no...

It sure is when a publisher forces the studios it owns to use one engine to save cash.

I can't wait to play Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Fifa and Command And Conquer: Generals that will look exactly like Battlefield 4 does...

I really hope the story is more related to the first Dragon Age, and not with the 2nd.
linkenski  +   483d ago
I think it's going to refer to both. And bringing back characters from 2 doesn't mean DA3's going to be worse than DA:O because the writers can still turn it around and add more depth to characters who lacked development or personality.

Well, let's hope the games content/gameplay is top notch too.

bioware have some great choices they can use frostbite 3 or cryengine 3 either way new mass effect will look incredible

more RPG elements please

It makes sense for ME4 to be next gen, but what does everyone think of DA3 being next gen?

Personally, I suspect it would be a bad move on BioWare's part, since they need DA3 to be a hit in order to regain the fan trust that they lost over the past few years. And I think that DA3 would sale better on current gen., since I can't see DA3 being much of a system seller. But maybe being on the new console would help them, since they would have less competition. What does everyone think? I am very curious about this.
