Gamescom 2014 – Dragon Age: Inquisition can be dark and dreary too

1 min read


EA kicked things off at Gamescom today with a brand new gameplay demo for Dragon Age: Inquisition. Spells, swords and shivers, it’s all looking pretty amazing still.

Changing pace from some of the more cheerful gameplay demos we’ve already seen, this new walkthrough introduces us to  a brand new area on the map. It’s dark, rain is pouring down and ominous lighting rages in the background. It’s all very gloomy and beautiful at the same time. We got to see more tactical and action-orientated combat, with the two systems seamlessly working together.

Dragon Age: Inquisition is going to feature hundreds of spells and weapons for you to toy around with. BioWare is stressing the detail here, giving you all the tools you need to really make your Inquisitor feel unique and alive. It all looks like it’s coming together very well, while retaining most of the elements that made Origins such a damn fine RPG.

There’s also a new trailer for you to sink your teeth into, which briefly introduces some of the threats you’ll be facing as the Inquisitor. It; also gives away the appearance of some pretty important characters, so be warned.

  1. I must not watch the trailer for fear of spoilers and my wallet’s wrath.

    Cool trailer, but I’ll only get it once I hear from my gaming peeps. The truth shall set them free post release. Will it be a proper sequel to Dragon Age Origins or the bastard child of Dragon Age 2 One Cave? Only the masses can tell me! Only the reviews from the peasantry of gaming media will shed some light on it.

    It will be super awesome if you see the Grey Warden, Champion of Ferelden and Hawke based on your imported save games from DA:O and DA:2 ….

      I am very exited to know what kind of voice my Warden will have. But I believe there will be some changes, just like with Shepard in Mass Effect.

    That was a really weak trailer. Bioware, what the heck is going on over there?

    No trolling, that was either *very* rushed or this game is quite far from polished.

      Oddly it reminded me of Kingdom of Amalur….

        It is still running the same engine as the first? It looks very 2008.

    Hmm, yeah. Burned too many times by EA/Bioware. I’ll be buying this used if at all.
