BioWare Focusing On The Technology Of Dragon Age 2
Hey, we loved Dragon Age: Origins. We loved it enough to give it RPG of the Year in 2009. But we all had to admit...it looked kinda icky.
But don't expect those muddy, murky graphics when the sequel rolls around. According to what BioWare vice-president Greg Zeschuk told Joystiq, the team is definitely focusing on increasing the level of technology for the new series. There is always the argument that we don't necessarily need the best visuals possible for a game like Dragon Age and while that's true to some extent, it's good to hear the following from Zeschuk:
"I think one of the key things we're working on in Dragon Age 2 is the technology. I can confirm that we're doing a lot of work on the Dragon Age engine, and doing a lot of stuff to pump it -- to make it visually super hot."
The mere fact that a sequel is in the works is enough to get us excited; this graphical upgrade will just be the cherry on the sundae. Zeschuk adds that "the overall visual style" will "continue to evolve" in the series and although he won't give away too much about the sequel, he did talk about the "timeline" and how you can "go anywhere," which is a little cryptic. Technically, you could kind of "go anywhere" in Ferelden once you got to the world map, so... Anyway, we just want Dragon Age 2. That'll make our day.
