Dragon Age: Inquisition will be best on PC

2 min read


For too long now, PC gamers have been getting the short end of the stick when it comes to PC ports. Games are poorly optimised, lacking the sort of options and features PC gamers expect or are made for controllers, with poor mouse and keyboard support. That won’t be the case with Dragon Age: Inquisition.

According to a new developer diary from Bioware, it looks like console gamers will be the second-rate citizens when it comes to the newest game in the Dragon Age series. Just about the whole game was made with PC gamers in mind first.

This shouldn’t be all that surprising, given that the PC version of Dragon Age: Origins was a PC game that got ported to consoles. The PC version allowed for far more tactical combat than the console versions which were a little more action-oriented. PC gamers were also some of the most vocal about Dragon Age 2’s “dumbing down.” This time, it’s made by PC gamers, for PC gamers.

Inquisition’s PC specs were also recently released:

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
