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 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.

Endless_X1873d ago (Edited 1873d ago )

Yes, Frostbite 3.

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

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.
