BioWare Shows Off Dragon Age III Concept Art

BioWare Shows Off Dragon Age III Concept Art

A quick look at what's coming next

Written by Jonathan Barnes (osubluejacket) on 23 October 12 at 09:17

Last month, BioWare pulled back the curtain on Dragon Age III: Inquisition. I know I was in the minority of gamers who actually enjoyed Dragon Age II, but when BioWare's Mark Darrah says that they're listening to feedback that gamers gave on both Dragon Age: Origins and its oft-maligned sequel, I get a little tingly on the inside. With that gym class, rope-climbing flashback of sensation in mind, try not to get too excited by these three shots of concept art for the next title in the series.

Dragon Age III 1

Dragon Age III 2

Dragon Age III 3


These screens do come with another nugget of info, courtesy of the twitter feed of Cameron Lee (producer of the game):

...customization is going to be bigger than Dragon age origins. Follower customization etc. #DA3So there you have it... nice looking concept art, a promise of more customization, what more could a gamer want?*

* Please note that this is a rhetorical question and the obvious answer is, of course, ice cream.

Dragon Age III: Inquisition currently does not have a release window or (for that matter) confirmation that it isn't a "next-gen" title. As always, we'll be sure to keep you informed as details emerge!

Nice quality screens anyway but i am sceptical about this game after all i have heard about dragon age 2 it sounds like they pulled a Fable on us and if they are continuing down that path further then no thanks, if however they are going back to their roots i welcome this with open arms!

Looks pretty sweet. I liked II aswell but the repetitive areas were a let down.

DA2 was better than DA:O for me, but both amazing games. As long as this one is like the other 2 I will be happy.

Ugh. I hate EA and I want to stay away from their products because of the direction they've been taking things...but my extreme love for DA:O will make this difficult. I hated DAII, but if Inquisition here actually has varied environments and deeper customization that DA:O? I may break.

Need...more details...

Looks... stunning. I'm deterred because of EA and because I haven't finished first two games as well.

After the slap in gamers' face that is DA2, I'll wait for more details before deciding if I'm going to buy this. Only because DA:O is that awesome.

Dove DA2 a month or two ago along with a bunch of other RPGs...liked what I played of it actually, but I suppose when I actually get around to it we will see what happens...

I'm incredibly skeptical about anything Bioware says. Period.

We'll see what happens when the game is done and out.

Whilst i whinged my way through DA2 complaining about the same reused areas over and over, I still really enjoyed the game, not GOTY material by far, but still a really enjoyable game.

I'm very excited for DA3

Never played DA2, but Origins was an epic game and very enjoyable. I hope they return to that style of game and combat (very KotOR like).

BW announced that you will only be able to play as a human in DA3. (look at pretty much any other gaming news website). So I'm not sure what they mean when they say there is going to be more customization.
P.S. - Im a mutual fan of all game systems. P.S.S. - Wii and 3DS arent game systems.
