"First, the graphics. Running on the latest iteration of the Frostbite Engine, at least one source told me that The Veilguard targets 60fps. In a subsequent conversation, though, an EA representative said, “Dragon Age: The Veilguard will feature performance and quality modes on consoles to ensure players can choose the visual fidelity they prefer. We’ll have more to share on exact performance as we finish development in the coming months.”"

This is from ign to avoid what ever site that is they just took the quote and made it there own

Am i the only one that sees no value in the frostbite engine anymore?

I say that as we know thanks to the 2042 disaster this "new" engine is from that game it was a disaster to make it because majority of the people that made the engine have left ea so am i too assume they have what 10- maybe 20 people in the whole company that still know's how to code this engine?

Must be a nightmare to be like hey i need to recreate this seen but the software keeps crashing so they fly 3 people from europe to la for a hot patch how is that saving them money?

With nfs/madden/2042/anthem/bioware with this game top of my head and all those have framerate issues along with a mountain of bugs ea your drunk man go home.

You watch its going to be like jedi 720p native upscaled to 1440p in order to achieve at times 60fps.

I Think It's About Time I Accept That The Dragon Age We All Knew Is Long Gone

Hanzala from eXputer: "With Dragon Age: The Veilguard beginning a new, action-focused, hero-style era, it's clear that Dragon Age is no longer what I remember."

“ beginning a new, action-focused, hero-style era”
This isn’t the beginning of any new era, it will be DOA like the Dungeon’s and Dragons Dark Alliance reboot train wreck in 2021

I agree but unlike that game were no talent hack's were used this game will fail because its going by the clipboard and is being made by people that got the job for who they are instead of what they know/can do.

Look at the game director's vision here official blog 2nd game sense left collage was in diapers when the first one was being thought of during kotar days.

Did they hire vets na this person the esg said so.

You can tell no one in bioware knows what dragon age keep is and no one played the old games back in the pre 2010 era.

Everyone should watch the netflix anime that is cannon which happens before this game in fact the gameplay of this game shows some stuff from that show. That netflix show reveals just how few left knows the lore/art style/combat

That is such a great comparison, especially when it comes to the combat. Like when you look at whats going on it may be action but it definitly is no God of War, it aint flashy combo based like Devil May Cry either. And it definitly isnt slow methodical like the Souls games it just looked very spammy and shallow by comparison to any of those great titles weve seen in recent years.

Bioware is Bioware in name alone.

It's been dying since the end of ME3... The last two founding members were more interested in hobbies than the day to day so we got that shitty endibg... I can't say I blame them, they had become wealthy beyond their wildest dreams and working for EA (though that was their fault/choice) had to be depressing...

Anyhow, it's a bloated corpse now... EA won't kill it because they paid too much for it.

it looked pretty underwhelming in every sense, graphics were sub par for current gen, gameplay looked average, combat showed the main thief character doing the same jump move attack a million times, boring, and the whole plot didn't seem very interesting.

I remember watching Dragon Age Inquisition trailer graphics and thought that they were mindblowing for their time, it's been 10 years now and this looks such a minor improvement, and then the cartoony look and it just kills it completely. Finally, add that Bioware latest releases have been terrible, this looks like a shipwreck in the making.

INMATEofARKHAM19d ago (Edited 19d ago )

Not to defend it but the combat was a lvl one character so that made for limited moves... so it likely gets better..? Agree with everything else. I don't see a compelling Dragon Age game...
