Bioware finally unveiled the full title for the upcoming new release for the Dragon Age franchise. The developer also promises to “be more open” and that they will be listening to fan feedback from both previous titles.
In a letter to the press and the series’ fans, Bioware’s Executive Producer Mark Darrah finally revealed the full name for the new Dragon Age game: Dragon Age III: Inquisition. Darrah continues to say, “We won’t be talking about the story of the game today. Though you can make some guesses from the title.
“This game is being made by a lot of the same team that has been working on Dragon Age since Dragon Age: Origins. It’s composed of both experienced BioWare veterans and talented new developers.”
The team intends to improve customization within the game and character choices, “We are working on a new engine which we believe will allow us to deliver a more expansive world, better visuals, more reactivity to player choices, and more customization. At PAX East, we talked about armor and followers… Yeah, that kind of customization. We’ve started with Frostbite 2 from DICE as a foundation to accomplish this. “
By “that kind of customization”, Darrah is suggesting that players will be able to alter the appearance of their companions by changing equipment, something fans missed out on in Dragon Age II.
Mark closed his letter by saying, “We are going to be as open as we can. We will continue to have a dialogue with you and answer what questions we can. Keep providing us with your feedback. I’m excited about what we are working on and I hope that you will be too. I know this is going to be hard to believe, but it is just as hard for me not to tell you stuff as it is for you to wait.”
Dragon Age III: Inquisiation is scheduled to launch in 2013. It is the sequel to both Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age II. Whilst the latter met poor reception, Dragon Age: Origins received over eighty awards and sold over eight million copies.
