I'm one of those weird people who like Dragon Age more than Mass Effect , simply because I prefer fantasy over sci-fi.
That being said, I think it's clear that the last couple of Mass Effect entries were of a slightly better quality than Dragon Age II , which was a great game but still disappointed me in a few key areas. So I'm looking forward to how BioWare approaches the third installment.
We still don't have too many concrete details for Dragon Age III: Inquisition , but the studio has released some concept art . We've got what appears to be a lone hunter standing atop a rocky outcropping, the outside of what could be an abandoned forest temple or palace, and a castle on a mountaintop that definitely reminds me of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim . All of this could be beautiful, especially because the game will be utilizing a brand new engine, of which DICE's Frostbite 2 is the foundation. I've got high hopes for that.
In addition, as cited by GameSpot , producer Cameron Lee has informed us that we'll actually be able to control castles in the anticipated title, which sounds decidedly strategic. Oh, and there will be more customization, and the world of DAIII will be pretty darn big: "Just one level in Dragon Age III is as big as all of Dragon Age II's levels." Yeah, well, we're definitely getting a "big" vibe from that concept art.
