Dragon Age Inquisition's Exalted Plains

1 min read

Ah, Dragon Age Inquisition, I am so ready for you. This time, we are graced with not only another screenshot (to add to last week’s singular screenshot), but we also get some descriptive words. The game must be almost ready, right?

According to lore, the Exalted Plains of the Dales was where the elven army faced the human Chantry and died. Once more, it is the site of conflict:

The Exalted Plains are now a contested battleground in the Orlesian civil war, and soldiers fight and die here in vast numbers. As the boundaries of reality weaken across Thedas, the memory of injustices past and present draws the attention of restless spirits who rise to possess the dead and stalk the living across the blood-steeped earth.

Does this mean we’ll have ghosts and zombies, too? Zombie elves would certainly be something new. Either way, it seems like an interesting battlefield. Not only does it sound really cool, it also looks amazing. Here is our latest screenshot.

Yes, yet again we only get one image, but at least it’s another impressive one. I really hope that the gameplay looks just like this on the new consoles – it will be stunning.

With The Witcher delayed into next year, Dragon Age is the big Western RPG release that I’m excited about for this year. I hope it’s everything I’ve built it up as in my head – fortresses, open world, fully customizable characters. It gives me the tingles just thinking about it. Bioware simply has to redeem themselves with this iteration in the franchise, and I have a good feeling about what they’re doing.

      They’ll show you a video as soon as they can get the fps above that of Powerpoint. 😉

        BWAHAHAHAH! Well, if you flip through the 3 pictures they’ve released you’ll have 3 seconds of play from the Xbox One 😉

    Sounds like it should be called the Salted Plains, not Exalted.

    Easy, don’t do a copy/paste of areas, and the game will be much better

    I will get a next-gen (or is it already current?) console to play this on. The only game my PC will be upgraded for is DoW3 (please make this someone). Really looking forward to this game. I am going to start off as evil as can be with a massive two-handed weapon (just like I am used to)

          Sorry man, that was in bad taste. I will buy you a “lesson” at the “dancing academy” of your choice. xD

            No problem…this time. But no need for a “dance lesson” – those are getting expensive.

    I want to play a new good rpg so bad. Please let the wait be worth it.

    This game is layering on the hype sauce, slowly and steadily. It better taste damn good when the meal is finally ready…

    one thing I wouldn’t mind seeing is building up your own keep, like you could do in Neverwinter Nights. its not entirely inconceivable given the tech DAI is packing…would just need to be in line with the story i reckon.

    Redeem themselves? DA2 was a damn masterpiece, a flawed masterpiece but one nonetheless.
