Dragon Age delay brought back playable races

1 min read

Dragon Age III, which we’re supposed to stop calling that and only refer to as Dragon Age Inquisition, is seeing the return of playable races.  Yay!  So how did this beloved element return to the game, and what impact will it have?

BioWare’s third installment in the Dragon Age franchise was pushed back by a year.  Whether you call it a delay or a revised release date, the game will only be coming out in (Northern Hemisphere) Autumn 2014.  This gave developers time to reinstate races, a decision that series creative director Mike Laidlaw said was “100 per cent based on fan feedback”.

Going back to the Dragon Age Origins approach, your choice of face will affect your character background and interactions.  No only will you have a unique experience at the start of the game, your interactions with other races and factions will be affected by your selection.  Additionally, you can choose whether or not you will play as a mage, something quite significant if you consider the backdrop of the game is a war between the templars and the mages.

Dragon Age Inquisition is releasing Q3 next year on current and next gen consoles, as well as PC.  I can’t wait!
