Looks very good. Art style and graphics were incredibly bad in both Dragon Ages. That really held the universe back, hopefully this will change in this game with the new Frostbine engine.

Looks gorgeous hopefully the gameplay will match.

#3 Posted by Postosuchus (141 posts) -

Looks pretty decent, but DA2 erased the last bit of goodwill I had towards Bioware. And that leaked alpha gameplay looked just like DA2.

Thanks for the video. It looks very impressive. Hopefully the gameplay matches the visuals.

I agree, Dragon age one had such promise. morrigan was awesome.

DA2 i thought the story and characters were good, but oh my god that gameplay and the settings, really needed work.

Certainly willing to give them another chance though, it's bioware FFS.

DA:O = Serviceable. Got tiresome after a while. Orc-like threat was unoriginal.

DA2 = Hideous. Class balance was mildly improved.

I think I'm going to pass on Bioware's latest game. Sad that a dev like Bioware has sunk so low. My ears used to perk up at the mere mention of their name. Now I just want them to die.

Bioware are highly inconsistent imo... Their voice acting and dialogue is always top-notch though.

Instead of paring down the filler combat from DAO, they just made it a button masher to get through quicker. I'd like to think they learned their lesson, but I'm not about to preorder just to get burned again.

will wait for reviews..i haven't had much faith in bioware recently

#11 Posted by fueled-system (6249 posts) -

DA2 had many of problems but I do think it is a tad underrated. Hope this is good and combines the better elements of both games

#12 Posted by Mozelleple112 (6618 posts) -

Looks pretty darn good. I have high hopes for this game. I invested 75 hours into Dragon Age Origins and I didn't even complete it. One of my favourite RPGs of last gen and one of my most played games on PC (according to Xfire)

Still didn't complete it, makes me want to play again but I lost my save, not sure if I want to put in another 50-100 hours lol.

Those graphics are outstanding. They aren't as much a technical achievement of photorealism as much as they are high fidelity with a very colorful artstyle that allows the environments to pop more. Feels much more fantasy than most RPGs.

That said, it's safe to be skeptical about the gameplay.

i thought dialogue was one of the worst parts of DA 2, everytime hawke said something i kinda wanted to slap him.

Am I the only one not impressed by these graphics? Looks good but not MIND-BLOWING good.

Yeah not preodering this not after DA 2

Oh i agree, but when they nail it, they can do it better than almost anyone. thats why they shouldn't ever be written off.

not rly, they lost it, their last games have been bad, maybe it has to do with ea buying them or not, but since then they've released dragon age 2, knights of the old republic and mass effect 3, they are mediocre at best.

Looks fantastic. Frostbite 3 in an open world RPG > Any other game engine until CryEngine 4 releases. Next gen to me is the years of more stable gameplay, and larger open worlds for RPG's

#20 Posted by Ghost120x (3691 posts) -

Still skeptical.

#21 Posted by uninspiredcup (7667 posts) -

Guild Wars 2's world looks beautiful and unique. This looks like generic shit. Proof engine doesn't make a game.

#22 Edited by Ballroompirate (22284 posts) -

Dang that Frostbite 3 engine is looking good.

I'm not impressed by the foliage-bearing trees (they look rather blocky) but the rest looks pretty good. Aside from the generic medieval art direction that is.

Unlike many people here, Bioware's missteps haven't soured me as much on the company. I actually liked DA2 quite a bit. It had more than it's fare share of problems but the story and characters kept me interested. I'm looking forward to this as they were allowed plenty of time to make it instead of being rushed like DA2.

#25 Posted by silversix_ (13922 posts) -

Will be surprising if this game runs at over 600p on X1. Buying this day one probably on pc

#26 Edited by texasgoldrush (9120 posts) -

Wow, while I do think that DAI is going to basically copy ME3's plotline, the world looks much improved.

However, I like how they are NOT going to be like Dragon Age Origins. Why? Because that game is simply too flawed in too many areas. It looks like gameplay wise, they are going with what works for both DAO and DA2 and turn away from what didn't work.

So DAI will have the race selection from origins (improved with a new race), the dialogue wheel from DA2 (improved in every way), and a combat system that is more tactical but stays responsive.

Frostbite 3 prepare for bugs.

Mass Effect 3 is a 93 on MC with the game selling over 5 million copies, and along with Mass Effect 2, its Bioware's best selling title. So much for "that ending" hurting its sales.

SWTOR had a rough post launch but it has now rebounded to be a very profitable MMO, and its far from terrible. In fact the Imperial Agent storyline is easily one of Bioware's best plots. And really not many MMOs have the leveling quality that SWTOR has.

The ONLY game you listed that was an objective failure is DA2, which sold half the copies as DAO and was less well received critically.

Same here. Mass Effect went downhill after the first, and DA 2 was the game that made me stop preordering.

please dont mention the old republic. i really dont want to know about that game, every time i see / hear something about i wish i'd got into it. I dont do MMO's but for star wars i reckon i could.. i would need a better graphics card, but if it were on xbox i would have been in day one. i really like star wars.

and i enjoyed the mass effect trilogy immensely, the ending did not bother me, but the extended cut and the citadel dlc really made it up for me. my shepherd is still nursing a hangover after the party and that is how my story finished.

While I didn't like Dragon Age 2 as much as Origins, I still enjoyed it. Definitely looking forward to seeing more about Inquisition.

#34 Posted by Spartan070 (16327 posts) -

I understand people having an opinion one way or another on Bioware but for a company responsible for so many AAA titles some of you guys sure do harp on the one or two bad eggs...

I look at Biowares' library and I have supreme confidence in them. Plus they have done several interviews late last year on the DA2 outrage, it's not as if the cries of the masses have fallen on deaf ears.

So cynical...

There have only been 2 of them, you say "after the first" as if there was a long line of bad DA games that came after. They had one bad egg, which was actually good in certain regards (story, characters, etc...).

I'm not sure how much unique rocks and tress can look. And this trailer focused almost entirely on pure nature.

I haven't played Guild Wars 2, but I'll certainly not say it's generic based on a picture like this.

The first game had a lot of problems, so no, it did not go downhill.

Hell, except for DA2, ME1 is by far Bioware's most unpolished game.

Here is how the dialogue system in Dragon Age Inquisition will be...

http://dragonage.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:King_Cousland/Dragon_Age:_Inquisition%27s_Dialogue_System_Explained

Similarly to Dragon Age II, dialogue options are picked from paraphrases on a wheel interface, and are written with a voiced protagonist in mind.

  • There is no longer a dominant tone the protagonist will use during "auto-dialogue" segments.
  • There will be less "auto-dialogue" than in Dragon Age II, as it will only be heard when the Inquisitor says something such as "Go on." or "What is that?"
  • The diplomatic, humorous and aggressive tones used by Hawke are gone, replaced by noble, clever and direct. This is an initiative to bridge the gap between the three tones.
  • Similarly to how the "investigate" branch of the dialogue wheel broke off in Dragon Age II, there will now be a branch dealing with "special" dialogue choices or actions to be taken. This is dependent on things such as having a certain companion present, romance options, previous choices etc., and will be greyed out if the requirement is not met in order to show the player the choice they could have made.

is it just me or did the trailer make the game seem skyrimish?

even looked like skyrim for a game that is supposed to be nextgen.

oh well here is hoping mass effect 4 is even more awe inspiring

Skyrim is far more Norse.
