Dragon Age: Inquisition Discovers the Dragon Age

By Rebecca Smith, 2 years ago
Dragon Age: Inquisition takes players on a long journey through the world of Thedas. By using the Frostbite engine that can support huge areas and a level of destruction to which gamers are accustomed in the Battlefield franchise, developer Bioware is managing to create a vast living, multi-region world. Each area will have its own ecosystem with predators, prey, factions, and opportunities to expand your Inquisition.

The areas wouldn't be spectacular if the effects weren't that realistic though. As such, Bioware has built weather systems that create naturally-formed puddles and wind that will blow objects such as spider webs. The world's population will also react to your actions; for example, towns will be raided by bandits. The ecosystems will see deer flee from wolves and giants feed on bears.

From Thedas' war-torn plains to its jagged coasts, the latest trailer takes players on a journey to discover some of the diverse locations hidden within the game.

Our search will take us to every corner of this land. The beautiful, the dangerous, the ancient places where no-one walks alone -- this is the world we're trying to save.

And their bones shall spread across the land, the remains of an empire lost to folly.And their bones shall spread across the land, the remains of an empire lost to folly.
