This game looks really interesting. I never played the first two, but I'll give this one a go. I'm torn between getting it for PS4 or XB1 though. Same for The Witcher 3.

Anyway, I love me a nice, open world. And it has a different style of combat, so that's appreciated. I'll keep my eye on this.

Since they announced Dragon Age Keep you don't need to play the first two games but I recommend you do.

With the Keep you can create your own game choices from the first 2 games without playing them.

Graphics are gorgeous because of DICE's Frostbite 3 but RPG's are not about graphics ...so I'm not yet sold after the disaster they called Dragon Age 2.

Dragon Age 2 doesn't make your point though because Dragon Age 2 didn't have very good graphics, while Origins was a WAY better RPG and just a better game in general in almost every way except one, and Origin also looked way better to boot.

DA2 could have been almost as good as Origins if it didn't loose so much of what made Origins great like making your own character, and not even being able to put all the armor you've been collecting on your party members........basics of the genre. Not to mention the bland, reused 50 times environments.

It comes down to this. Origins took 5 years to make, and it wasn't even "ground-up" in that BioWare used their existing engine. While DA2 was indeed ground-up, brand new engine created.....yet it only took 1.5 years to make. DA2 was unfortunately a cash-in, rush-job, which was not made with real passion or care the way Origins so clearly was.

^ I would've seen DA2 as tolerable if it didn't recycle dungeons constantly and insisted on avoiding doing anything interesting with the franchise and storyline. That ending had "we were forced to fit this in at the last second" written all over it. The game really was a rushed mess.

I'll be honest. I didn't care much for the combat in either Origins or DA2. Origins is called tactical, but I found the combat in it to be boring and actually really simple. DA2 was worse, but because the combat was hard to manage due to the hyper-speed. But the slow pacing to fighting itself didn't lend anything extra to Origins' simple policy on positioning, homogenized enemy types, and clumsy hit-detection. The combat just needs to be slow enough so you can manage it and see attacks coming.

Inquisition actually has diverse and distinct enemy types (who co-operate) that require different reactions, sets like cover from dragons and destructable pillars, and a focus on resource management this time around. That sounds more tactical and promising to me. And they're taking their time, and that gives me hope. We'll see how it turns out.

Loved Dragon Age Origins, didn't care for Dragon Age 2 very much, but inquisition has my attention.

This is running on the frostbite engine correct?

Endless_X thanks for confirming the engine.

I included a second video in which they showed tactical view.

Great to see, since I'll probably use that the majority of the time.

Never played Dragon age before but with my new love for RPGs... I can't wait to play this and Witcher 3 both looking great so far.

Somehow , while i'm wary of the game given what i think of the serie (i'm not a big fan of DAO wich i found to be a mess and poor botched tentative to mix badlur gate's mechanics with modern ones , on top of an actually interesting setting and universe , and DA2 was bad) and Bioware's usually empty promises , i'm intrigued .

What i'm liking here , is the way the game at least looks , it's vibrant and almost cartoony , despite the way they could have easily fallen for the realistic and "gritty" graphics trend , especially with an engine like Frostbite .

this looks so good.

Damn ,this is so awesome ! :D

We have to wait a year to play it. The wait is killing me already.
GodGinrai  +   550d ago
I played the first one. loved it. the second one was OK...but this looks excellent ;)
baldulf  +   550d ago
Looks like a Fable game.

Wasn't it supossed to be an RPG?
FrigidDARKNESS  +   550d ago
Bioware loved Skyrim so much they said Dragon Age would be similar.
aPerson  +   550d ago
Do you mean gameplay-wise? To me the combat looks more like a hybrid of Kingdoms of Amalur, Dark Souls and DA: Origins than Fable.

But yes, visually it reminded me a little of Fable. That isn't a bad thing though - Fable has a beautiful art style, and the first two Dragon Age games were lacking in that area (not that it bothered me), so I'm happy they are going for something that stands out this time around.

I'm just happy nothing about the demo reminded me of Dragon Age 2... ;)

The combat looks boring and repetitive!
kalkano  +   550d ago
I somewhat agree, about the up-close action parts. But, I plan to use the pulled back strategic view, for the most part. Choice is never a bad thing.

Is that the pc version?
TheFutureIsBlue  +   550d ago
Yay, they actually listend to the fans. I was so hyped for DA2, then when I actually got my hands on it, it was a really big disappointmint. The areas were linear, they reused the same ares too much, story felt like a side missions, etc. This looks amazing and I'm glad Bioware is giving DA that ME treament.
kalkano  +   550d ago
This looks much better than I was expecting. I haven't played any of the series, yet. But, I plan to, sometime after I finally get into The Witcher series. ;)

Dragon Age 2 is completely unplayable. So, I think I'll just watch a playthrough for the story of that one, and only actually play 1 and 3.

the gameplay footage is probably running on a really expensive high end computer just hopefully looks exactly the same on PS4 and Xbox one
