Dragon Age: Inquisition is going to be gorgeous – we knew that because of the whole new generation console thing, as well as the fact that Bioware has said it will be best on PC. Now a new trailer shows off just how impressive the game will be, and why we should be interested in the story.

Here is The Hero of Thedas trailer:

I love the opening concept – for years people believed the Maker was watching over them, and now they believe you are ruling through the Maker’s will. Whether or not it’s true, that belief is what gives you your power to rule. Very nice opening idea – it’s not about whether you’re actually meant to be a hero, but because people believe in you, you have that power.

The game looks gorgeous with unique enemy design and detailed character models that make me extremely happy. Plus, I am far too excited about the fortress that you can build up as you gain more followers. It’s a brilliant management element included in the RPG and makes me want to play the game… right this second.

The trailer ends with the typical Bioware open-ended question about your choices – a hero is needed, but what kind of hero will you be? Knowing my play style, I’ll probably be the ultimate paragon; unlike Darryn, I just can’t be mean in games. However, Dragon Age: Inquisition has promised a far less black and white (or red and blue) decision making proposition – there won’t always be a good or a bad choice to make, but rather tons of moral ambiguity. Here’s hoping that promise is kept; it will certainly make the game more interesting.

Wielding my lasso of truth, I am the combination of nerd passion and grammar nazi. I delve into all things awesome and geek-tastic. I believe people should stop defining themselves and just enjoy playing games, so let’s get on with it!

  • Kensei Seraph – Staff

    I finished DA:O Monday night and will be starting DA:A soon.
    Maybe I’ll reward myself for finishing DA:A with watching the DA:I trailers, or maybe I should save them as incentive to finish DA2 (I get the feeling I will need all the incentive I can get).

    • Her Highness the Hipster

      it’s an unpopular opinion, but I actually enjoyed DA2. It wasn’t a fantastic game, but I’ve played way, way worse.

      • Pink hair worse?

      • Admiral Chief 0

        Agreed. Geoff trolled me with the game, and I am grateful. It was not THAT bad

    • Lord Chaos

      It’s not that bad…
      If you have enough alcohol on hand every cave looks different.

      • Kensei Seraph – Staff

        Well I guess I’m screwed then since I don’t drink.

      • hick!

    • oVg

      Enjoy the worst loading times EVER. Even the art director made them face palm.

      • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

        And the worst re-use of assets this side of Call of Duty. Have I told you guys how much I hated Dragon Age 2? Have I?

        • oVg

          tee hee hee. Got you 🙂

          • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

            Have I told you, how much I hated Dragon Age 2? Please have a seat young man, grab a cup of tea and listen to a sagely Banana… as he rants about one of Bioware’s worst games.

          • oVg

            My Asperger remembers your rant like it was yesterday. You had the Homer Simpson Avatar at the time 😉

      • Kensei Seraph – Staff

        I vaguely remember getting through a book or 2 in my first partial playthrough.

  • WIN!

  • Admiral Chief 0

    Awwwwww jisssss Bioware!

  • Jackie

    Wait… Darryn can be mean? Do you have to poor water on him first?

    • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

      Wow… I read that as “Do you have to poo on him first…” =/

      • Jackie

        O___o

  • rollingmol
