Following the pre-pre announcement of reports on one thing new in Dragon Age, BioWare have pre-announced that they’ll open up in December. My fingers are crossed for a brand new game persevering with the adventures of the merry gang in Kirkwall from Dragon Age II, although I suppose occasions Dragon Age: Inquisition would lower that off. And the mysterious undertaking nonetheless might simply be a dang comedian e book or one thing somewhat than one other RPG.
“If you’ve been following these blogs, or myself and Mark Darrah on Twitter, you already know we’re additionally engaged on some secret Dragon Age stuff,” BioWare common supervisor Casey Hudson posted final evening. Dragon Age is an extremely essential franchise in our studio, and we’re excited to proceed its legacy. Look for extra on this within the coming month (although I received’t inform you the place to look…)”
Is it The Game Awards with Geoff Keighley on December sixth? The present that’s an enormous PR announce-a-thon with some trophies thrown in too? I wager it’s. That’s what all the opposite large studios are making obscure hints about nowadays, and certainly you don’t wish to be ignored, do you? Hudson’s already confirmed to be there to point out off Anthem.
You know what, I’ll nonetheless go to bat for Dragon Age II. It’s a massively flawed realisation of an fascinating thought, specializing in one metropolis and a handful of individuals over time. Enemies spawning mid-combat is irritating, the re-use of areas feels so low-cost, and it doesn’t do almost sufficient with its fascinating thought, but it surely had one and went for it with some pretty companion characters who had lives and relationships of their very own (and the violence was extra enjoyable and all).
