Dragon Age 3: Inquisition gets new gameplay details and concept art

Ha ha! No one expected the Dragon Age 3: Inquisition! Our two chief weapons are surprise, sequel milking and nice shiny new concept art pieces! While Dragon Age 2 may have been a clusterbomb of bad gameplay and cheap ideas, it looks like EA has learnt from that blunder of a sequel, as they’ll be bringing in some new features for the third game, all rolled up in a world that is biblical in scale.

Speaking during a panel at the Edmonton Comic & Entertainment Expo in Canada, cinematic designer Jon Perry said “one level in Dragon Age 3 is as big as all of the levels in Dragon Age 2.” Running with that size matters trend, creative director Mike Laidlaw then added in that “customization is going to be bigger than Dragon Age Origins,” and that players will also be able to customize their followers”.

The team is also currently looking at implementing influences from previous Dragon Age games that players had owned, as decisions in those ones could have ramifications in DA3, albeit with the development team looking to do so “without save imports.”

Series writer David Gaider chipped in as well, saying that players would be human, and that “backgrounds will be in Dragon Age 3 even though you will be human, it’s not playable but it does significant impact on the story.”

Flemeth the Shapeshifter will also return, because according to Gaider, “It feels wrong to not have a little Flemeth in your game.” Erm, ew? Dragon Age 3: Inquisition will only be out next year for those of you brave enough to tangle with shiny red-suited menaces and their pointy pillows. Meanwhile, here’s some tasty concept art to wet your whistle.

Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.

    HAVE YOU EVEN PLAYED THE GAME!?!?! There is dragons in Dragon Age. Want to know how I know? BECAUSE THEY MAULED ME! Dragon Age : Origins the dragon is at the very end of the game (ArchDemon) and when you do the quest “Urn Of Sacred Ashes” you have to go up the hill and there is a gong. hit the gong and viola there is a dragon in front of you. Dragon Age 2 when you have to do 2 mining quest, both have huge dragons. NOW ACTUALLY PLAY THE GAMES BEFORE YOU START ACCUSING, AND STOP WHINING LIKE A LITTLE BABY!!!!

      lol I finished that sucker twice as a female wearing nothing but her underwear :). Some kick ass dragon at the end in the Mine section that I owned and some small ones. I troll, TV games are TV games. If you find my comments offensive then PLEASE do not read the other 4000 that I have posted.

      P.S. You have to admit that DA2 deserves a good trolling as the game could have been DLC when compared to the Kick Ass DA1.

      Game on…
