Inquisition Will Have Motion Control If It's The "Right Thing To Do"
Motion controls (Move, Kinect) don't always fit the style and structure of a game.
But if they fit nicely, BioWare might utilize motion-based control in their upcoming sequel, Dragon Age: Inquisition. During a recent OXM interview with producer Cameron Lee, we find out that the overall player "experience" is paramount:
"We don't just want to jump in and say this is what we're going to do, because it may not be what players want, it may not be a good experience. We have the luxury of time, to see how people respond and then craft something where if we want to do that, it's the right thing to do. So we'll see where we land with it, and we'll take it from there."
Lee cited Mass Effect 3's use of Kinect as a great example of solid motion controls; it was dubbed an "interesting experience" and in the future, Cameron added, "we'll see where we go." As for Inquisition boasting an online multiplayer mode for the first time in franchise history, they're again using the Mass Effect series as guidance and inspiration. That being said, they "haven't decided on anything" just yet.
Dragon Age: Inquisition is scheduled to arrive for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC some time this fall.
