Dragon Age Inquisition’s latest video reintroduces Cassandra

Developer BioWare and publisher Electronic Arts have released a new video for the upcoming semi open-world role-playing title, Dragon Age Inquisition. This latest footage focuses on a returning character from Dragon Age II – Cassandra Pentaghast. The video stars Cassandra’s voice-actor – Miranda Raison – as she explains how she has grown in the time between the two games. Oh, and the fact that Cassandra still considers Varric a pain; although she also has some sort of respect for our favourite dwarf.

A few weeks ago, Dragon Age Inquisition’s producer Cameron Lee mentioned the game could very well take players up to 200 hours if they would want to see absolutely everything. On the other hand, those looking forward to just the campaign can expect somewhere between 20 to 40 h. of play time. “People could burn through it and just do the main path, but we wanted to have a world that’s fully immersive and well-defined for you to explore, discover and get involved in”, said the producer. “We want you to see you decision have an impact and take shape in the world”.

Dragon Age Inquisition is an upcoming action role-playing game developed by BioWare and published by Electronic Arts. The developer is planning on fusing elements of both earlier games in the series, Dragon Age Origins and Dragon Age II, into the creation of Dragon Age Inquisition. The game will feature larger environments with much more opportunity for exploration. BioWare has confirmed that multiple playable races are returning, both male and female. Players can play as a human, dwarf, or elf just like in Dragon Age Origins. Additionally, Qunari are also playable for the first time. However, combat is expected to differ somewhat from its direct predecessor, and focus more on a player’s ability to prepare, position, and form a cohesive team with his or her party members, requiring fewer repetitive finger strikes but better thinking like the first installment. Tactical view also returns for all five platforms in Dragon Age Inquisition, whereas before it was exclusive to PC in Dragon Age: Origins, and which was removed in Dragon Age II.

Dragon Age Inquisition launches on November 18th in North America and November 21st in Europe, on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
