BioWare has been so far very careful in revealing Dragon Age: Inquisition. The third title in the Dragon Age franchise holds a great deal of importance. It will either redeem the studio for their heartless massacre of Dragon Age II or else end the series on a very bad note.
The game reveal which we have gotten so far seems to put Inquisition in a good light and I must confess that I’m really interested in playing it and hoping against hope that it doesn’t prove to be a dud.
Some fans of the franchise though are not too pleased with BioWare’s effort. They have pointed out similarities between Inquisition and BioWare’s sci-fi RPG, Mass Effect 3. In the latter, different races and civilizations that until now were enemies, band together to defeat a threat greater than all. Inquisition’s storyline is a bit on the same lines as well.
“In Mass Effect, you always knew what the threat was, you always knew that the reapers were there,” the game’s producer Cameron Lee told OXM, “in Dragon Age: Inquisition, whilst there is a humongous tear in the sky, and all these powerful factions and nations are in chaos – all this is happening at once, and that’s a little too strange to just suddenly occur and be coincidence.”
He further explained that, “in Inquisition you’re talking about having a personal impact, but mostly through these big crunchy, meaty decisions and impacts that the Inquisition can have on the world. It’s kind of like the difference between being a Jedi, and founding the Jedi Order.”
Dragon Age: Inquisition will be published by EA for the PS3, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC on an unannounced date this year.
