Dragon Age: Inquisition gameplay shows combat and power

Dragon Age: Inquisition had better live up to my expectations. Everything I’ve seen and experienced of the game has been wonderful, and this latest nine minute video of gameplay footage looks rather impressive. There are tons of things to do, and I’m excited to try them all.

Youtuber rechyyy (clayman90) was invited to EA to play an early build to Dragon Age: Inquisition and captured nine minutes of gameplay. Here’s the video:

It’s great to see more of the exploration and combat, although it still looks so flashy to me. Every activity seems to cause a particle effect or random spark of colour; sure, it makes the game look pretty, but it just doesn’t feel like violent combat to me. Still, I love seeing all the extra missions that have appeared, as well as the side activities. It’s clear that there will be a ton to do in the game to build your power – not just grow your character but also your Inquisition’s power.

The game certainly looks gorgeous, too. I am glad to see more and more of the game, although I’m ready for it to just release already. It’s time for me to get my hands on it again instead of watching other people play, or only getting to explore a tiny piece of the game. I wouldn’t mind seeing some more about the characters and plot, too – it’s great to know about crafting and combat, but I’m drawn to Bioware games primarily for the characters and story lines.

    I’m still sold for Wild Hunt instead of this.

    Man I hope this delivers. Two good looking RPGs that don’t feature characters whose voices can shatter glass or sound like they are either in need of meds or are porn stars… Also no pink hair. Thank fuck.

    with All this DA:I coverage, I’m beginning to doubt the integrity of this site….
    Monetary Kickback? or just FanGirl-ism from Zoe?

      It’s obviously money. I mean women don’t play games, so this “Zoe” can’t be real. I bet it’s Gavin pretending to be a girl to attract more REAL GAMERS to his site for that sweet, sweet Xbox cash! #ExposeTheConstipation

    It looks amaaaazballs to me. Id like to see combat trailor in 1st person view as opposed to 3rd person we see in trailors. Most people play in 1st person. Combat looks a lot like TESO, I dont mind the flashy comat as opposed to just gore. πŸ™‚

      This isn’t the Elder Scrolls. There is no first person view.

    I’m sure there will be an option to lower the sparkles and flashes during combat.

    Zoe, I do NOT want spoilers so if you do post anything on the plot or characters then please warn me about the spoilers so I don’t accidentally ruin something for myself. Please.

            Well, I’m not sure if that should be something to be proud of. They make everyone staff these days. πŸ˜‰ Trevor and I are the rebels.

            That’s exactly what Darth Vader told the stormtroopers.
            And as I recall the Rebels gave them quite the beating.

            It’s impossible for me to be a rebel. I’m the emperor.

            We’ll have to somehow turn this around somehow..

    One question I’d like to ask, Zoe: did you feel this way about DA2 in the early days? Or are we just repeating the cycle of hype, release, disappointment?

    Wonder if there’ll be a dragon movie based on this.
