Developer BioWare and publisher Electronic Arts have released four new screenshots from their upcoming open-ended role-playing title, Dragon Age Inquisition. With less than three weeks until the game’s official release date, these latest screens showcase Dragon Age Inquisition’s main three classes (Warrior, Rogue, and Mage), each battling either ogres, the undead, or (surprise!) a dragon.
Yesterday, Executive Producer Mark Darrah had confirmed Dragon Age Inquisition had officially gone gold, stating “we’ve made it this far is also an acknowledgment of tremendous support and patience from our fans: you’ve been an inspiration to us since the beginning. The biggest story of the year is yours to play, very, very soon.”
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.
Furthermore, 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.
