Dragon Age: Inquisition is shaping up nicely, wouldn't you say?
Speaking on Twitter , BioWare creative director Mike Laidlaw has addressed plenty of pressing fan questions.
As you can see, one of the first involves the question of the storyline in the upcoming sequel: Do you have to have played the first two games in the series? Laidlaw's answer is simple: Nope. It couldn't hurt to have some Dragon Age experience, but it's not necessary for enjoying Inquisition . He tossed out a few gameplay-related tidbits as well, as summarized at Gameranx .
For instance, class-restricted abilities will come back, ideally to promote party-based gameplay. He also elaborated on the roll-dodge we've seen in the game; interestingly, Mages won't "roll;" they'll "blink." It's not a teleport, though; it's a…well, it's a "blink." Laidlaw did say that such skills are purchased in the same way, and they're not acquired via talent points. Me, I don't think rolling or "blinking" should be part of it, but whatever.
