Check Out 16 Minutes of Dragon Age: Inquisition Gameplay Footage

Creative director Mike Laidlaw walks you through the first part of this October's RPG.


Dragon Age: Inquisition

BioWare today released a 16-minute Dragon Age: Inquisition gameplay video showing off the highly anticipated open-world game. The video is narrated by creative director Mike Laidlaw, and shows a warrior journeying through one zone from the full game. This zone is bigger than the entire Dragon Age: Origins playspace, and is replete with dynamic objectives (bear-hunting, anyone?), Laidlaw says.

As you might expect, the Dragon Age: Inquisition video culminates with the player encountering a massive dragon and working hard to bring it down. In the video, the dragon spits fire, bats its wings, and stomps around, making it so you need to strategically plan your moves.

The Dragon Age: Inquisition video also shows off the game's "Focus" abilities that allow the player to slow time down in order to land more precise and effective damage against a dragon. In this case, the player is able to target the dragon's legs and head using Focus. However, Focus is a finite commodity and you can only use it if you've built it up over time.

"This is the Dragon Age game we've always wanted to make," Laidlaw concludes the video saying.

Dragon Age: Inquisition launches on October 7, which is a wildly busy day for new releases.
