IGN: SDCC 10: Dragon Age 2 Combat Preview

Here at Comic-Con, BioWare is giving people the first look at Dragon Age 2, the sequel to the (not even a year old) Dragon Age: Origins. This will be another epic fantasy role-playing game, but some key changes are being made to the design.

When i first read about DA2, i didn't like the info, but this sounds good. The graphics change to me wasn't really needed, because to me the graphics fit well with the game. I loved it the way it looked, but the new graphics dont really seem to differ too much. The combat seems to be even better (I loved the combat in DAO), it seems to take it to the next level.

While the DLC thing already makes me a bit worried, i loved the DLC for DAO, not really the darkspawn one though, just didnt fit.

I haven't been able to finish the first one because my PC keeps freezing at the exact same spot in the game. :/

I'm not sure if it's a hardware or software problem, but I am sure that it's pissing me off. lol

Just when the game started to get interesting, too.

If you haven't updated your game, update it. They released a patch for some of the loading problems or reinstall your game after backing up your save files.

WTF did BioWare just kill Dragon Age for the console scene? Hack 'n Slash attacks?! Whats next, removing the tactical isometric view from the game altogether as well as pause? So much for this series being the spiritual sucessor to Baldur's Gate, R.I.P.

chillax.. BioWare are smart cookies everything they make is awesome.
Wait till the game is out then call DOOM!
If it really is bad that is.

If you know where my name is from you would know I'm a huge BioWare fan lol..

Letros2950d ago

I know, I know, I shouldn't doubt them, never made a bad game...doubt it will start now.

However, I want some Neverwinter Nights 3 or something, miss the old DnD system.

Sarevok2950d ago

Yeah me too! I miss the forgotten realms.

Too bad Atari holds the rights it.

Trust me, Bioware know what there doing, and this game will be well worth your $.

It looks like both the console and PC version are going to be their best. The console version of DA was clunky and wasn't the best it could be. It seems that BioWare are going to do their best to make it more appealing and easier to manage for the console crowd.

I love DA but it seems like BioWare is trying to correct everything that I didn't like about it with this sequel. Hopefully it looks better this time around, as well.

So not only were was the entire idea of the grey wardens a rip off of the witcher, but now they are likening the combat to it as well.\

For anyone that hasn't played the witcher: The witcher undergo a ritual that kills some of them, where they drink monsters blood as well as the tests they have to go through. AKA exactly the same thing bioware has for the grey warden initiation/back story, and like witchers they are destined to battle monsters

"The title screen already has a "Downloadable Content" option."

That is just sad I was so pissed when some guy built into the game in the camp had dialogue offering me paid DLC....very very low blow by the kings of RPG
