See now, this sounds more like a role-playing game.
It's not that Dragon Age II was a bad game. In fact, it was a great game. We were just missing a few key elements of a standard RPG. The good news, though, is that BioWare appears to have listened.
In speaking about the upcoming Dragon Age: Inquisition to Game Informer , we learn that we'll be allowed to create our main character from range of races. In DAII, we could customize a character, but it had to be Human and the name had to be Hawke. Furthermore, there will be the return of customizable armor, which we assume also means every member of our party can wear various pieces of equipment. In DAII, only the protagonist could be fully outfitted.
We'll also get mounts as well, which should be interesting. In terms of story, here's a brief summary from the report:
"As the game begins, the Inquisition has plenty to investigate. War, scheming, and political strife have left the major power groups in the Dragon Age universe unable to operate effectively, which is a problem when a hole opens in the sky and demons begin pouring out. Players must fight back against the demonic threat while exploring a vast world and consolidating power for the growing Inquisition."
Lastly, they spoke of "large and varied environments," which was another missing component in the last entry. So, it certainly seems as if BioWare has listened and we'll get the Dragon Age we've always wanted when Inquisition drops next year. It's in development for current-gen consoles, as well as the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
