Inquisition is in every sense a most promising sequel of fantasy RPG Dragon Age. It's beautiful and epic.



We will be able to play as all four races!!! Qunari/Kossith, human, elf and dwarf.

Yes, Qunari will be both male/female and also mage. (Mike Laidlaw confirmed on twitter)

Although touted as an ''open world'' game at E3 2013 presentation, the developers quickly clarified that Inquisition will not be open world in the same way as Skyrim but instead simply feature larger locations (than presumably Origins and Dragon Age II) with more exploration freedom.
Gameplay and news from Pax Prime:



Aaaand something that is very funny to old players like me:







I cried from chuckles.

Dragon Age is my favourite franchise, I can't wait until DAI. I hope they'll have better companions than in DA2, though, or at least that you can interact with your companions more.

o_O

I hated the second one so much sadly, so I am a little skeptical. When is it coming out?
They say it's supposed to come in fall 2014.

Ooh, this is exciting! I was somewhat disappointed with DA2, given how good DA:O was, but I'm a BioWare loyalist 5eva and will definitely pick this up when it hits.

That said, is it petty of me to still be bitter that Alistair didn't have a bigger role in DA2? And maybe hold it against them forever?

I'll wait for the reviews on this after the complete disaster that DA2 was. DA:O was the last Bioware game that I genuinely had a good deal of fun with, even if it did have a lot of things that pissed off my RPG gognard side. Oh I guess Mass Effect 2 was fun too, I think largely because they ditched a lot of the half-assed RPG stuff from ME1 that really wasn't implemented very well. I quit 3 about halfway through though, I couldn't take anymore of the idiotic good/evil system and dumb dialogue choices and repetitive story/game format (PLEASE do something more creative than the "four major objectives in an open hub that you do in any order before moving the story along" shit that you've been doing since Baldur's Gate 2 guys, seriously).

The tears in the veil seem remarkably similar to the Gates of Oblivion in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.

The first and only one I ever played was DA2. And I got up to a point and gave up because, it was just so bland. I felt like I wasn't doing anything and it got to the point where I would decrease the difficulty (which I despise doing) midway through the game to be able to enjoy playing. Is that how most wrpgs work? I wanted to get skyrim, but I really didn't like Da2 and sort of assumed most or all wrpgs work the same way.

But I might check this out, looks alright. Still on edge though.

They're not even remotely similar. I suggest The Witcher 2.

What makes them so different? And hows Witcher?
Character interactions are vastly different. Combat mechanics is different. It's open-world.

I would say that The Witcher 2 is superior in every way. The characters are more interesting, the story line is more impressive, the combat is more dynamic and exciting, the voice acting is better.

Yes! I can't wait. *drools*

I purposely skipped DA2 because the reviews were so bad. I also was late to the DA:O party since I was still playing Star Wars KOTOR 1 & 2 at the time xD

Interesting, that's good to know. I heard Dragon Dogmas pretty good, and it seems more my style from what I've read about it. Do you know anything about that game?

... I... liked DA2. *hides forever*
I liked it but I wasn't blown away by it, either. It was advertised as a 'dark fantasy' but it wasn't remotely dark. If you ever play The Witcher or The Witcher 2 you'll see what real 'dark fantasy' is in video games.

Think about the story like this - it's very 'adult'. It doesn't offer 'good and bad' choices - it offers, in many cases, 'bad or worse' choices. Bad guys are REALLY bad guys. Good guys can still be pretty bad. (It's a conflict, so good and bad depends on your loyalty and perspective) There's no happy course of action. BioWare talked about the "weight" of your choices with very little to back it up. In this game there are several cases where no matter what you choose something bad is going to happen. You see the good suffer and the bad get rewarded. You have to shake hands with the devil, so to speak, to get things done. I enjoyed every minute of it - especially in the many moments where I sat thinking 'what have I done?'. I can't recommend this game enough.

Yeah, the second one was awful, so I'm hoping they learned from that.
o_O

Yes they have. I am a DA fan and I must say DA2 didn't exactly suck but it was obviously underdeveloped, unfinished. If I remember well they were making Mass Effect about the same time and they rushed to be done with DA2 asap.

This time, they took into account all complaints of players and are changing everything.

No more repeating same locations (5 quests taking place in the same cave), there will be many many more locations -diverse and unique - and they will be larger, much larger than before. Orlais, Tevinter, Ferelden, Free Marches, even Par Vollen! The map is huge!

http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100721040626/dragonage/images/8/80/ThedasMap.jpg



















More companions (9), more party banter, more conversation and interaction - each companion a unique individual.







Your choices will significantly affect the outcome of the plot and will affect approval of your companions
. (no more bribing with gifts)






You'll be able to win your keeps/fortresses and specialize them for a purpose (military/trade/espionage).



Every dragon now will be different. I think we even may get a chance to tame a dragon and ride it!



Enemies will not adjust to player's level. (you lvl. 9. enemy lvl.9, now it will be you lvl 9 and enemy his own level e.g. lvl 19)

More interaction with environment.

As I understand as Inquisitor you will have troops also, people who voluntarily sign up to aid you.

hm... why am I saying you will, we all will. Can't wait the fall of 2014! :'D



Tactical camera is back. Combat will be balanced, not as sloppy as in DA:O, but neither 'hyperactive' as in DA2. (check out the videos in the first post on this thread)

And so much more.


But I might check this out, looks alright. Still on edge though.
I am fairly sure you will regret not playing Inquisition once it's out. As for DA2 it isn't as bad as some reviews say, but you may be disappointed depending on your expectations.
