So, you’re telling me I can spend more time in the game? Neat, sign me up.
Do you remember when your first played through Dragon Age Origins and around the 60 hour point you questioned what you were doing with your life? I do, a ridiculous amount of time was put into that gem of a game.Well Mike Laidlaw from Bioware, who is the creative director of the game, aims to replicate that and is apparently on course for succeeding.
Speaking about just how long the game is going to be, he recently told GamingBolt, “It’s borderline impossible to tell at this point, it’s a lot. We built it basically to say “here is a bunch of content, you do not have to do it all of it by any means to finish the story, but you may want too.” So, we want players to feel like they kind of have their unique experience and to do that you need to spread things out say “look, you may pursue this, you may pursue that.”
I personally can’t wait to get my hands on the game and I know I’m not alone in that. I went back and played through DA:O and DA II just to refresh my memory. But once he said “There is a bunch of stuff that are optional. Once you finish the game and finish the storyline you can go back and tackle it then if you want”, I just knew that vast swaths of my time have already been destined to pass playing Dragon Age Inquisition.
