If you’re interested in the upcoming Dragon Age game, you may want to check out The Game Awards next week.
Would love for Bioware to pick themselves up after getting dusted by Anthem and put out a real *Bioware* game again.
All they'd have to do to achieve that is remaking Dragon Age Origins :P
Origins was so good :(
No, at this point they have to prove they can make a decent new game.
Please have less fetch quests that you are forced to do in order to open main story missions. DA:I had way way too many fetch quests
Yeh that was the main reason I got too bored to finish the game. I think I was at 100+ hours and right at the end but I was just done with it. The same thing happened to me with Andromeda. Mass Effect 2 on the other I had beaten about 4 or 5 times over the years and on the hardest difficult - and the original Dragon Age at least 2 or 3 times. I miss old Bioware.
Bioware is dead. All you will get now are equivalent to the involuntary jerking movements of a corpse.
I thought I read somewhere that they were basing the next DA on Anthem's gameplay style - so MP GaaS filled with MTs and loot boxes.
Hope its a proper trailer this time rather than the ones we previously got ...
I honestly doubt it. "Special look" doesn't sound very promising to me.
Developer Diary is what it sounds like. Showing concept's but no real game play. A waste of time if they're not showing gameplay imo.
casey hudson and Mark Darrah left just before this...interesting
Yeh, not good at all. Bioware is finished. Dragon Age Inquisition and Mass Effect Andromeda were lame. And Anthem was a complete disaster.
Not very high hopes for this.
I want it to be great but am worried it will be filled with GaaS or other exploitative features. If they can provide a quality, single player only, story focused RPG experience I'm all in.
Pretty sure the GaaS version was canned. Even though Casey and Mark are leaving I remain hopeful DA will be ok. I want to believe they are restructuring and getting their stuff together. I also think EA has eased off the a little because EA been trying to play the “were supporting SP games too, see Star Wars” plus EA doesn’t want another Anthem.
the first dragon age was the best, and also the spiritual successor of Baldur's Gate (The new BG3 being the successor of divinity original sin). The later games since were made for controllers/consoles to target a larger audience, but were never as good as the first. Anything new is just their continual cash grab on the original game they made.
How do you reckon that the new BG3, is the spiritual successor of Divinity Original Sin?. I've been waiting 18 years for BG3, I'd be pretty disappointed if it's more of a successor to D:OS
Larian studios is making it and it's already being compared to D:OS as having the exact same game play. There's plenty of articles if you want to research further. Personally, I wish that Obsidian made BG3 instead of Larian because Obsidian was once Black Isle studios who made the original BGs. The game will still be good, but expect the feel of D:OS games instead of the first two BGs.
Literally nothing is going to get me to tune into the game awards. I'll wait for the day or hours after to hear about anything noteworthy. Could care less about who wins what award.
To me, this could be one of the best game awards ever. I expect a lot of big announcements.
the big announcements will get to me news wise across the usual channels. I'm not tuning in to see a bunch of awards chosen by other people. Good for the devs who win but it doesn't mean much of anything to me and same goes for movie awards.
I'm still hopeful this game will live up to expectations as the Trespasser DLC on inquisition was brilliant.
Wasn’t this reported to be a episodic game a few years back? A hard pass from me if that’s still the case.
Don’t get all excited it’ll probably be a CG trailer with no release date.
Probably trying to start the hype train...wholly unaware that an ip like dragon age is already hype enough. Probably will show that they have no clue how to create a good game anymore.
Wasn't this game talked about by several execs as "Anthem with dragons"? That should be fun. I'm sure everyone will enjoy all 5 days of the servers being full of players until it flops too.
Pure negativity around here. FYI those early talks about a GaaS model was canned and the game was restructured. They won’t do another Anthem. I can all but promise you that. I have to have hope that Bioware will get it together.
Better to keep expectations low.
Guessing either a title card animation or CG video that is in no way representative of the final game but Bioware is allergic to showing gameplay right away, I'd be stunned if they show off gameplay. I'll also be stunned if they actually make a Dragon Age game like Origins instead of whatever half baked games 2 and Inquisition were.
Really enjoyed Dragon Age Inquisition myself but it has been too long since Bioware made a game I enjoyed.
I’ve enjoyed them all except Anthem. I just don’t buy always online games.
A few of my preferred franchises died to me after they went online only.
hoping for excellence, expecting a disaster
Hopefully it won't be as boring as inquisition
Bioware needs to gift a copy of this game to anyone who purchased anthem!
Will it be good and surprise us though? Very unlikely.
Will it though? Or will it just be another self sucking dev diary where the devs talk about how great and creative they think they are?
