Dragon Age III Rumored Info: Lots Of "Drama And Suspense"
BioWare is currently working on the third Dragon Age, and it seems clear that they're listening to the fans.
Thanks to various surveys and leaked information that has popped up in the NeoGAF forum, it appears we have some possible baseline info on DAIII. All rumor for the time being, though, so keep that in mind.
Here's a portion of the plot we may experience:
"A portal between the worlds unleashes hords of demons in the land, civil wars rip apart nations and the corruption is limitless. Someone is behind the shadows, drawing the threads which destroy the world. Time has come for the Inquisition.
Take the Inquisitor's cloak and lead the only force able of bringing light into the darkness. Choose the direct method and gather your armies, send spies into the shadows or engage in a political war, make friends and use your connections indirectly: it is up to you how you lead the inquisition. But you'll have to take lead of it from the beginning. Make your player a rogue, warrior or mage and set up your crew from up to ten (!) complex companions to lead them against those who attack you by systematically spying on, revealing and destroying them."
As for features that might make the final cut, we see things like "special finishing moves," online and co-op modes, a whole lot of "drama and suspense" and "crucial decisions," and overall better party management. Me, I'd love to be able to fully equip all my party members, thank you very much, and a world closer to the original Dragon Age would be appreciated, rather than just a bunch of maps connected via boring central hub.
I maintain that DAII was a fine game and a decent RPG. But more could've been done and it fell shy of BioWare's potential. Any fellow RPGers agree?
