Dragon Age III Bound For The Next Generation of Consoles?

Posted on November 28, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

Rumors, reported by Kotaku, state that Electronic Art’s next entry in the Dragon Age franchise, Dragon Age III, has shifted focused to the as unannounced Xbox 720 and PS4 rather this current generation of consoles. The source for this rumor is a LinkedIN profile for a former employee of Bioware who worked on the game as a level designer. This platform shift apparently will cause the game to be delayed from a late 2013 launch window to sometime in 2014.

Kotakue reports that the unnamed employee wrote on their social resume:

“Scope of the DAIII has been chaged [sic], which will target next gen platform [sic] and will be postpone [sic] to 2014.”

If DAIII was released two years from now would that spur your decision to jump into the next generation? Let us know in the comments below.


Dragon Age III: Inquisition Details & Concept Art

Posted on October 22, 2012 by Joshua Rust

There have been rumors of what’s to come in Dragon Age III: Inquisition. Here are some new details that we know for sure.

– It has been in pre-production longer than Dragon Age: Origins, Dragon Age 2, or Mass Effect 2.

– Cinematic designer Jon Perry states that “one level in DA3 is big as all levels in DA2.

– There is a possibility that you will be able to own/control your own tower

– It will feature character customisation “in a big way” including “follower customisation”

– “The storytelling legacy BioWare is known for, with deep RPG gameplay, all on a brand new RPG game engine underpinned by EA’s critically-acclaimed Frostbite 2 technology”

– You will play as a human as you did in the second game (which I find disappointing..but oh well)

While it did manage to bring new players to the franchise, a lot of people felt that Dragon Age 2 was a major letdown. I’m truly hoping this one will be a bit better.

Here is some of the concept art from the game, including the potential castle that you may be able to control.

Dragon Age III: Inquisition was announced last month, it is expected to launch late Fall 2013.



Dragon Age 3 To Add Co-op?

Posted on August 20, 2012 by Joshua Rust

First off, I want to clarify that this is clearly speculation and rumor at the current moment. But, if a recent social poll is to be believed it appears that the Dragon Age franchise could see co-op implemented into Dragon Age 3. While the poll doesn’t clarify that co-op will come to Dragon Age 3, it does give the option to vote for it as a potential feature.

The potential plot for DA3 was given as well via NeoGaf:

“The great nation of Orlais, the most powerful empire in Dragon Age, tears itself apart in civil war.”

“The stout men and women of Ferelden struggle to recover and reclaim their nation from the horde of vile Darkspawn that lay waste to its lands a decade ago.”

“The Chantry, the once-unified faith of the Dragon Age world stands divided. The Templar order has broken away, claiming the church has become too lax in policing the dangerous powers o the mages. The Mage circles have rebelled, believing the Templars have become too strict, too zealous in their duties, and too quick to slaughter those who step out of line.”

“The world of Dragon Age is one on the brink of collapse, and when a desperate gathering in the name of peace becomes the epicentre of a magical blast that decimates the Chantry’s leadership, it becomes clear that someone or something is manipulating events to drive the world into chaos.”

“From the ashes of that explosion, something new rises: The Inquisition. As the Inquisitor, it falls to you to build up your power and martial your forces, uncover secrets and build connections across the world. You must explore forgotten spaces, uncover ancient mysteries and uproot those who would destroy the fabric of the world.”

If it’s true co-op, I’m all for Bioware implementing this in the game. If it’s the co-opatition that Bioware brought to Mass Effect 3, eh…I’ll pass. How about you all? Would you want to see co-op in Dragon Age 3?
