Dragon Age: Inquisition concept art teases elven origins

Dragon Age: Inquisition has a solid spot on my personal list of top five most anticipated games of 2014. It looks like it’s going to be huge, stunning and well designed. This latest bit of concept art coming out of Bioware shows off an enormous environment with hints at something to do with the elves.

This is the tweet from Bioware:


This same image was posted over on Facebook, with the quote:

And thus was mighty Arlathan cast down, its people swallowed by darkness—never to rise again.

Does this mean that we’re going to see the fallen city of Arlathan? Will that be one of the elven plot points? It looks beautiful, and the quotes are certainly teasing some sort of interaction there – perhaps to help restore the elves to their former glory? Over the holidays they tweeted out some other concept art that’s worth seeing:


This one was also posted on Facebook with the quote:

Beneath their feet, the footprints of the Maker, and all around them echoed a vast silence


The Facebook quote for that one is:

In the Arbor Wilds shall we find them, a land unclaimed by all save harsh and unforgiving natures.

It’s worth noting that the Arbor Wilds are bordered by the Dale, so perhaps this is yet more reference to the elves. We know there will be the full range of playable races in the upcoming Dragon Age – I wonder if this is to build on the elf backgrounds. Now, show me some Qunari awesomeness, Bioware.
