Dragon Age: Inquisition creative director discusses gender equality in Thedas

Players will be able to choose the gender of their character in Dragon Age: Inquisition in addition to the protagonist’s race and class. Since the series is set in a fantasy world with themes similar to our own medieval period of history, some fans are worried if NPC figures from the game will treat the Inquisitor differently depending upon their in-game gender choice. Putting those fears to rest, Dragon Age Creative Director Mike Laidlaw pointed out that the citizens of Thedas are open-minded when it comes to women rights so discrimination shouldn’t be something that comes up. (Dragon Age 3: Inquisition, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

As a proud male gamer, i am offended by the respectable portrayal of women in this game.
They wear far too much armor and are treated as equals. Absolutely disgusting.
Needs more high-heel greaves and bikini/thong armor.

/obvious joke, i apologize if i offended anybody/

well, I'm not going to judge on that, but I want to say that I am not a fan of Bioware's art style in Dragon Age only because it looks about the same with more polygons this time around.

Too many of these suckers are preaching about ethics and morality, before they bleed punters dry for dlc cash. The flippin cheek of them.

Wasn't DA:O gender neutral too. I mean, unlike the Witcher, women weren't treated too badly.

And in DA2, like half of the main characters were female. Felt like I did the right choice by choosing a female Hawke.

In DA:O I got ALOT of disrespect for not only being female but also because I was an elf. It made the plot alittle more compelling and funny to see so many men cringe that a woman was doing their job for them. That wasn't the case in DA2, everyone respects Hawke, and it seems like it's not returning in this game.

I see. I knew elves were persecuted and treated badly but I didn't play as a woman. My opinion was how the male NPCs treated other female NPCs and I didn't notice much.

Or maybe I just don't remember.
