After months of teasing and hyping the game, GameInformer and Bioware have collectively taken the wraps off the much anticipated Dragon Age: Inquisition. Get ready.
What were you expecting? Did you want a return to form? Did you want it to be like Origins? Well, tough luck; looks like Bioware wasn’t kidding when it said it was looking at Skyrim closely, because that is exactly what Inquisition looks to be. It looks like an Elder Scrolls game, down to the UI (seriously, just look at that in game footage near the end of the first video; I’ll wait).
If I wanted to play Skyrim, I would play Skyrim. I wanted to play Dragon Age. That lovely, tactical party based game I fell in love with back in 2009. Instead, I get what looks to be a mish mash of Dragon Age II (urgh) and Skyrim; at least races are returning this time around.
Dragon Age: Inquisition hits Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC next year. Let’s see if we’re jumping the gun on this one too early, but Bioware’s recent efforts have resulted in them losing a lot of goodwill and a chance for the benefit of the doubt.
