OnlySP: Some new Dragon Age: Inquisition details have been revealed over the past few days by both Mike Laidlaw and the official Dragon Age: Inquisition Twitter account.
I like being able to swim. But, it wouldn`t make it a game to avoid. Would ask Bioware to see if they can make it truly open world and add swimming net time around.
i hate swimming in games. I have a fear of water and it freaks me out. that submarine level in GTA5 almost gave me a panic attack
That's funny. I am afraid of heights and some games freak me out a little because of that.
That's even funnier I'm afraid of driving sometimes I wet myself.
its mainly when im in a game and either in the water, or like, under it and i just see vast darkness beyond the blue. shfgsfhsfhsdkfhs dkfhs dfh In BF4 im always trying to avoid the water bits.
I dislike most swimming in games . It often lead to clunky controls , and not even for the sake of realism . It can even be a designed timesink
Swimming in uncharted was amazing ... Marco! POLO!
Hmm, no underwater exploration. I guess that's one less box to tick.
Underwater exploration with your longsword and heavy armour lol! Or maybe some of the extra fine elven swim wear!
You nailed it on the head there, how can you swim in a game truly because the best divers in the world struggle a few minutes. Even stripped bare expiration will only last a short time and would get tedious. Submarines are probably a no no in them times also.
No swimming? Dumb game, pre-order cancelled.
I doubt you had it pre-ordered to begin with.
Of course not, I don't put money down on games that haven't released. This is one of the only games I'm interested in, though.
Every little thing you say is an example of teenage angst.
Has there ever been a game where swimming didn't suck?
Aquanaut's Holiday: Hidden Memories.
Guild Wars 2
The swimming didn't suck, but the skill set you got sure did.
echo the dolphin..
Skyward Sword (IMO) had pretty decent swimming controls.
They'll need good fish AI.
Dat fish AI so funny.
I liked the gow swimming sequences
Actually I am a bit surprised swimming is not included. Battlefield 4... same engine... https://www.youtube.com/wat... Guess they would have to include lots of underwater environments for almost nothing...
I'm glad we can FINALLY jump in Dragon Age. Given there probably won't be much swimming, it would have really been nice to have. I hate hitting "invisible walls"
Where did you read this? Not having ability to jump down off a 3 foot ledge has forever pestered me in Bioware games
watch that new trailer...i think its the combat one? about half way through in a snow area the character jumps in the video.
Im glad there's no swimming. Why the hell would I want to do that for? I think just for the heck of it add ons dont make sense. Also games should not be judged by what it has decided to not include in its design vs what the game actually has. This way ppl will ask the devs; what about flying? what about full seasons? what about riding on dragons? what about all kinds of mounts? etc etc the usual faff. I dont like games that try to become like every other one out there. Homegenize everything yuckk
I wonder if we can jump? We haven't been able to in any other Bioware game ever so hopefully ... YES! Immersion breaking to see where I need to go (off a 4 foot ledge) but having to run all the way around because one cannot make short jumps.
What's with the jumping. Isn't Dragon Age a party based game? Would that make your whole party jump at the same time, or would you have to lead them one by one over each obstacle? Not a solid mechanic for a party based rpg. (in my opinion)
It's a basic ability that should be in every game. Completely breaks immersion when you can't jump over even the smallest of logs/walls.
Well then it shouldn't really be a jumping mechanic (as in push a button and the characters jump), but a more natural way of the characters moving i.e. walking differently when going up a mountain (or down), climbing over logs, ... It'd also mean that you'd have to guide your party around walls to avoid waiting for them to climb over (because if you want immersion, climbing is going to be much slower than walking). Seems more frustrating than fun.
I often say they need to give a Nobel prize to whoever invents a way to auto-step over a 10 inch high curb instead of having to jump like a fool. Problems like these shouldn't exist in these 'advanced' games.
No swimming sucks, even older RPGs let you swim... I can't wait for Witcher 3. I assume it has something to do with EA/DICE and their broken game engine, even in BF4 you still magically fall out of your vehicle if you hit little more than a puddle and your vehicle still hauls ass through the water as you 'run' to catch up. They had to gimp it so when certain armor hits water you lurch to a stop then are allowed to continue.
